IP 43 Oregon
The Campaign to Stop the Sale and Transfer of Assault Rifles
The certified ballot title for IP 43 is "Prohibits 'assault weapons' (defined), 'large capacity magazines' (defined), unless registered. Criminal penalties.”
We are pleased with the title because it more accurately reflects the intent of the petition which is to save lives by reducing the number of assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines in Oregon. The original title led people to believe that possession of assault weapons legally owned before the bill took effect would be criminalized. That was not correct. Gun owners may keep legally owned items described in IP 43 as long as the items are registered.
Status: IP 43 is now in the hands of the Oregon Supreme Court.
