I had to take a class to carry concealed. In the end only law abiding citizens will comply. The criminals will still have guns and our justice system will continue turning criminals loose so they can prey on the innocent..

You have to learn to drive before you can drive. You have to take a forklift before you can drive a forklift. Why not know what you're doing before obtaining a deadly weapon of war?

Other counties with stringent mental health, & gun safety programs have the lowest crime rates & out of them Australia has had 3 shootings since 1996...Japan has had 6 people die by gunfire in the last year...The U.S. has miserably failed in the safety arena

How can anyone oppose gun safety classes for people who want to own guns? That's like being opposed to driver training before someone is permitted to drive on public roads.

There are many, many countries we could follow the example of. The 2nd amendment talks about a well armed militia, not a overly armed militia of one.

13 years in the Army and CHL holder for over 30 years. There's no such thing as too many firearm safety classes. Laws change and one way to get those changes out is through firearms safety class. A yearly refresher course should also be available.

It makes sense, and might cut down on "accidental" shootings.

This will not stop anyone from obtaining a gun. If they are planning an attack of any type, they will just choose a different weapon.

Your common sense answer has no meaning to the anti - 2nd Amendment people. They only want to eventually remove your rights completely.

I dont mind more safety courses, Those should be accepted, but not mandatory. The rest of the proposed bill is absolute nonsense.

It's your right to own a firearm so unless you forfeited that right by committing a felony there shouldn't be any restrictions. Oregon should be a constitutional carry state.

Just another way for the government to tax you for practicing your constitutional right to bear arms. It's not a privilege like driving.

I dont support it being mandatory but I would support an additional 5% tax on firearms and accessories to pay for training for people that want/need it.

The 2nd Am't, according to the Founding Fathers, was to preserve liberty, not hunting, not self-defense. Therefore, no registry may ever be allowed. Thomas Jefferson best discusses this: “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, 1/30/1787

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787

This would be one step away from preventing us our rights to bare arms.

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
