Oregon: Gov. Kotek Signs Restrictions on Home-Built Firearms

The Oregon Firearms Federation published a statement supporting a measure in Columbia County establishing what is generically called a "Second Amendment Sanctuary." The measure passed but will it stand? iStock-884203732

Yesterday, Governor Tina Kotek signed House Bill 2005, Oregon’s latest anti-gun law. It goes above and beyond federal law in prohibiting possession of existing home-built firearms and the raw materials for making them, unless they are serialized and recorded by Federal Firearms Licensees.

Prohibited persons, such as felons, are already prohibited by existing law from possessing any firearms, whether home-built or mass-produced. This new law only harasses hobbyists and will not improve public safety.
