Recall Effort Inspired by Oregon Background Checks Down To Final Target

By Penny Okamoto, Executive Director of Ceasefire Oregon

Three recall efforts against Oregon legislators who voted for background checks on all gun sales have come up short. Campaigns against Senator Chuck Riley and Representative Susan McLain failed to collect enough signatures to trigger a recall election, and the petition to recall Representative Val Hoyle was withdrawn.

The one remaining recall effort is against Senator Floyd Prozanski, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
