Oregon State Police Collecting Data on Gun Sellers

Oregon Firearms Federation

Just a few days before the universal gun owner registration bill kicks in, it appears that the Oregon State Police are planning on collecting data on sellers of guns, not just buyers.

We’ve been telling you all along that SB 941 was never intended to be anything but a vast database of gun owners and now it’s being proven to be all too true.

Starting today, gun dealers are seeing a new interface on their computer screens when they log in to conduct a background check on a gun sale. Now there is a box they can check for “Private Party Through Dealer.”  While not fully functional, it is clear that the Oregon State Police plan to demand, and database, personal information on the seller, or transferor, of the firearm.

As of today, if a dealer checks the “Private Party Through Dealer” box they cannot actually enter the personal info of the seller, but they do get an error message  saying “Alert!!!Please adjust for the following errors and try again” It then lists all the info “not supplied.” This includes the seller’s name, address, city, state and zip and their phone number.

Nowhere in the Prozanski/ Hoyle bill is any of this data mining authorized.  But hey, if you are creating a gun owner database you want all gun owners, not just people who are receiving guns.

Are the State Police planning on running background checks on the sellers of guns too?  Are they going to send out a trooper if the seller  fails a “background check?”  What’s next?

This is a very disturbing development and one that proves once again what the true intent of this bill was.

Be warned, every transfer under SB 941 will become a vehicle to harass and intimidate gun owners.  It’s only going to get worse from here.

We urge you to call bill sponsor Val Hoyle and demand that she end tracking of gun sellers. Hoyle can be reached in her Salem office at 503-986-1414 and her district office at 541-221-9162.

  1. How many guns do you need in your house?

    Only two for home defense, I reckon, and the rest can be hidden away, buried underground, and completely immune to the confiscation they’re working toward.

    If you do this, you can sit back and survive the confiscation process, and then dig up the real guns for war.

  2. JR:
    well based on Steve Quayle’s info, this wouldn’t work. As he insists “they will be coming after the gun owners (termination) not the guns”

    if you believe Steve Quayle is controlled opposition. Give me an amen.

    # 1. Non-compliance.

    # 2. Taking this country back.

    Yes, yes. Call them and get an infamous automated reply or a “thank you for your support, but I’m out of the office for the time being, please leave a message after the beep” response. Yea, that’ll work. They’re shaking in their boots.

    Hey, try gathering a majority of the city folk and have them take up arms and show these bastard politicians the barrel of a gun. You’d be amazed at how fast they change their mind because that is the only way change is going to occur. PERIOD!
