SALEM, Ore. A recently filed Oregon initiative would make manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing or selling an assault weapon or large capacity magazine a crime with only a few exceptions.
If passed, Oregon Initiative 42 would only allow owners to keep their assault weapons and large capacity magazines if they register them with Oregon State Police.
If the initiative goes into effect, anyone who owns an assault weapon or large capacity magazine will be required to remove them from the state, sell the items, surrender the items to a law enforcement agency for destruction, render the assault weapon permanently inoperable or, if eligible, register the assault weapon or large capacity magazine with Oregon State Police within 120 days.
Anyone who moves into Oregon with an assault weapon would have 120 days to surrender it to law enforcement, transfer it to a licensed firearm dealer, render it permanently inoperable or register it.
Unlawful possession or transfer of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine would be a Class B felony.
In order to register an assault weapon under the act, the owner would need to submit a form to the Oregon State Police with the owners name and address and identification number of the assault weapon. The owner must also allow police to conduct a criminal background check to confirm the person is not a prohibited possessor.

Similar legislation was proposed in Washington state this year but lost in committee. It'll be back next year.
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to the 2nd Amendment.

Well, this ought to take a big bite out of crime.
The beginning of the end. Dear Lord forgive them, for they know not what they do.
Its most likely to be back as an initiative, promoted by the ususal suspects.
Civil War II is about to break out!
Oregon taxpayers are thrilled to death, I’m sure, over how much litigating this unlawful piece of trash is going to cost them. Prolly go all the way to the SCOTUS.
Hopefully a wise judge will issue a strong stay early in this process.
Good luck with enforcing it.
NO ONE is going to register their guns with the state.
We are an election or two away from complete tyranny.
Bastards are hell bent on the two way range going live.
Only one more law, then it will be Eden.
Just one more.....
Have you seen one of the California compliant "assault rifles"?
The left are the same here, across the world, and throughout history...nasty unstable tyrannical M-Fers.
See stalin, lenin, hitler, mao, pol pot, castro for how that turns our for the unarmed peasants.
America isn’t the Titanic. What one whacked-out Left Coast state does will not cascade into & sink all the others.
“Wave of the future” is nothing but wishful Marxist thinking.
Anyway, vast noncompliance is the story the MSM refuses to tell. The governor who orders his state police to start kicking in doors will face mass insurrection.
“Civil War II is about to break out!”
We are hopelessly divided. Real Americans against the America-hating rabid left. It’s not going to end well.
Civil War II is about to break out!
Sure it is.
Start teaching the Constitution as it is written again.MAKE everyone understand “shall not be infringed” means what it says.
Elections still work well in our very fine democratic republic.
