Title: Firearm permits
What does this mean to me?
Should a person who buys a gun have to get a permit? Should police track who buys guns and who gets permits for guns? Should we stop guns from holding more than 10 bullets?
A “yes” vote means that you support limits on buying a gun. Gun buyers need to get a permit for their gun. Police should track who buys guns and gets gun permits. Guns shouldn’t hold more than 10 bullets. A “yes” vote would change the law. A “no” vote means that you oppose limits on buying a gun. A gun buyer shouldn’t need to get a permit for their gun. Police shouldn’t track gun users. Guns should be able to hold more than 10 bullets. A “no” vote would leave the law the same.
How much would it cost?
A person getting a permit would have to pay a fee. The fees should cover the costs of running the permit program. People aren’t sure exactly how much it will cost overall.
People for this say: This measure will make people safer. It will keep people from having guns who shouldn’t have guns. It will keep people from killing lots of people in a short time with their guns. People will have to be trained to be safe with guns. The measure will save lives.
People against this say: This measure takes away people’s right to own guns. It will cost too much. It will let people ban guns by not funding the permit process. It lets the government track gun owners. It overlaps with the laws already in effect. It is unnecessary. Oregon already has good gun laws.
