It’s the usual extremist “everything must be banned” type total ban of all modern firearms, with criminalization, prison time, etc. It includes banning safety features like Carolyn McCarthy’s “shoulder thing that goes up” and utility features like adjustable stocks for smaller shooters. And then there’s the part about inspections of homes, without even the limits of once a year like the Washington ban proposal.
Possession, when not at the range or to and from the range or a gunsmith, is limited to (Section 4, (5)(c)(A)):
(c) Possess the assault weapon or large capacity magazine only:
(A) On property owned or immediately controlled by the registered owner;
From Section 4, they get to de facto inspect your home – for 99% of people, that’s all that qualifies under §4(5)(c)(A):
(5) A registered owner of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine is required to:
(a) Securely store the assault weapon or large capacity magazine pursuant to rules and
regulations adopted by the department;
(b) Allow an inspector from the department to inspect the storage of assault weapons
and large capacity magazines to ensure compliance with this subsection;
Section 5, part 4, reiterated for “registered” owners:
(4) The department may conduct inspections of registered owners of assault weapons and large capacity magazines to ensure
compliance with the storage requirements of section 4 of this 2013 Act.
From the summary:
Creates crime of unlawful possession or transfer of assault weapon or large capacity magazine. Punishes by maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment, $250,000 fine, or both.
Requires current owners to dispose of or register assault weapons and large capacity magazines.
Directs Department of State Police to conduct background check and maintain registry of assault weapons and large capacity magazines.
Declares emergency, effective on passage.
Section 6 – an emergency is declared:
SECTION 6. This 2013 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency
is declared to exist, and this 2013 Act takes effect on its passage.
And from Section 4, can’t have more than one rifle and three magazines, with the rest subject to disposal:
(4) A person may not register more than one assault weapon and three large capacity
magazines under this section. Additional assault weapons and large capacity magazines must
be disposed of in the manner specified in section 3 of this 2013 Act.
Disposal in the law means having to remove it from the state, turn it in to the state for destruction, have it destroyed, or sell it to a dealer who’s allowed to possess it.
But remember, Oregon Democrats like Lee Coleman have assured us that this kind of thing is just paranoid delusion from some people in “Kansas or whatever” so “go screw yourself”:
Update: And just three days ago, it was said that Oregon Democrats were backing off.
Update 2: 2 1/2 hours after this was originally posted… Weird timing, HotAir.
Now tell me again why we’re all paranoid crazies making up fantasies about the government?
Update 3: Ed Morrissey & Allahpundit took the time to note that it is just weird timing – we’re all on the cutting edge of this one.
