Oregon legislators introduce bill to require background checks for private sales of firearms including internet sales

SB 941 will close the existing loophole in Oregon's existing background checks system by requiring background checks on private sales of firearms including internet sales.  Gun Owners For Responsible Ownership is a strong supporter of universal background checks to help reduce gun violence and keep guns out of the hands of felons, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill.
