HB 2173 : Guns in Public Fallacy Bill

Position: Oppose Status: House Committee On Judiciary

Allows person harmed by criminal act resulting in physical injury or death to bring action for damages against place of public accommodation if place of public accommodation prohibits visitors from possessing firearm.

Ceasefire Oregon suggests a corollary: Anyone harmed by a criminal act in a location where guns are permitted are allowed to bring action for damages.
