Oregon Sheriffs Association Says FBI Position Makes It Impossible To Legally Buy Guns

• by Scottie Barnes

Because the FBI has stated that it will not conduct background checks for the new law, no enforcement officer will be able to issue a permit to purchase a weapon as required by the measure.

Doing so would be a crime, the legal guidance states.

In addition, OSAA advised sheriffs that virtually all firearm magazines would be banned after the law takes effect.

Anyone possessing them would be committing a crime and could be arrested.

That includes off-duty police officers.

Tougher Rules

Voters approved Measure 114 last year with 50.7 percent of Oregonians saying "yes."

To qualify for a permit under the measure, an applicant would need to complete an approved, in-person firearm safety course, pay a fee, provide personal information, submit to fingerprinting and photographing, and pass an FBI criminal background check.

USC tile 18 sections 241 & 241 -- violation of rights under color of law. This law should be applied to the terrorists in the FBI and also to the county sheriffs if they help enforce this tyranny.
