Check out this beauty of an "assault weapon" ban:
Senate Bill 927: Sponsored by the Committee on Judiciary, it makes possession of an "assault weapon" a crime punishable by 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.Holy moly. 10 years? A quarter of a million bucks? Seems kinda steep, don't it?
Included in the ban is the manufacture, importation, sale or transfer, or advertise the sale of such weapons or to be in possession of "large-capacity" magazines.
There is a laundry list of weapons that would fit the definition of assault weapons.
Large-capacity magazines are those holding more than 10 rounds, with exemptions for .22 caliber, weapons modified so they cannot hold more than 10 rounds, tube magazines in lever-action firearms.
A separate bill, SB 937, also sponsored by the Committee on Judiciary, would make it a Class C felony to possess "large-capacity" magazines.
Any bets on how far this lunacy might go? I'd venture a guess that such extreme penalties will cause this bill to die in committee. Guess I'll add Oregon to the list of places I won't go. Ever.
