I urge everyone to vote no on Measure 114, the proposed gun control legislation. This measure is poorly written and would essentially eliminate the ability to purchase a gun in Oregon.

It requires a class with live-fire training by police-approved instructors just to apply for a permit to buy a firearm. There are no facilities to do this training, and no funding to provide them or the staff to do the training. The funding needed has been estimated at $50 million per year.
