HB 2005 prohibits hand made guns

Not yet in committee

Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2023R1/Measures/Overview/HB2005
Committee assigned to bill:

This bill is known as the Ghost Guns Bill that is aimed at 3D-printed guns, thought to be particularly dangerous because of their lack of serial numbers. But the bill does not exempt homemade rifle kits, and those that can be built quickly using a pre-3D print technology kit.

Possession of unfinished frame or housing, unless it is an antique, is also illegal if it is designed to hold components, hold back the hammer, striker, bolt or similar element, prior to initiation of the firing sequence, even if the pins or other attachments are not in possession.

Punishment is stiff for merely possessing that homemade rifle in the past without a serial number, since October 22, 1968, it’s 1 year in prison or %6,250 fine or both.

  1. There’s no way to submit testimony on this bill. The original version was sponsored by a who’s who of liberal groups. This is just one more way to harass law abiding gun owners who enjoy building their own firearms, and will do absolutely nothing to stop the carnage taking place daily on the streets of Portland.

    • Testimony can’t be submitted until a hearing date is set, but you can write legislators and committee members individual so they know the opposition.
