Introducing Executive Order 16 – 12, signed in by new gun-grabbing Democratic Governor of Oregon Kate Brown.
From a report on Guns.com, here are the 3 directives inside this insidious package of precarious gun legislation…
To help conquer gun violence, Brown signed Executive Order 16-12 which comprises three separate directives.
First, the Oregon State Police will be directed to retain firearms transactions data – now required for even private sales – for five years, establishing a defacto if temporary firearms registry. As part of the mandate, the agency will also use data from federal law enforcement agencies to trace all firearms recovered as part of criminal investigations.
Next, under Brown’s order, OSP will expand how it follows up on potential prohibited possessors to include launching criminal investigations and sharing data with other agencies and prosecutors. This is an expansion of a state police policy implemented by Kitzhaber’s administration in 2014 where in the event of a denial by the state’s Firearm Instant Check System, state troopers would be dispatched from patrol to the dealer’s location to investigate.
As the third part of her order, Brown directed the Oregon Health Authority to study firearms related deaths or crimes and their effect on public health, reporting to the Governor’s office should they need more mandates to do so. This comes in hand with an effort to expand how the state looks at gun-related domestic violence offenses and how those offenses can disqualify some from obtaining a concealed handgun license or a firearms transfer.
Studying firearms related deaths for their effect on “public” health, and investigating the need for EVEN MORE mandates?
Gun-related deaths are tragic, and especially when irresponsible gun owners exacerbate the situation.
But to sign into law legislation that opens the door for even more legislation? That is walking into 2nd Amendment territory there.
People like Brown think that taking guns off the streets will solve all the world’s problems … but criminals don’t care about that.
This is yet another attempt to disarm the responsible gun owners in Oregon, and will only make the criminal element stronger.
Way to go, Governor.
