MEASURE 114 LAUNCH: COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS Wednesday, September 14 at 7:00 pm Live streamed at augustana.org Augustana Lutheran Church, 2710 NE 14th Avenue, Portland. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
A "yes" vote supports this ballot initiative to:
require permits issued by local law enforcement to buy a firearm;
require photo ID, fingerprints, safety training, criminal background check, and fee payment to apply for a permit; and
prohibit manufacturing, importing, purchasing, selling, possessing, using, or transferring ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and make violations a class A misdemeanor.
A "no" vote opposes this ballot initiative thereby maintaining no limit on the capacity of ammunition magazines, except for hunting, and the existing law, which requires a seller/transferor to request a background check before firearm purchase.
