Tuesday was a whiplash of judicial rulings on Measure 114, the new Oregon gun control measure that voters narrowly passed last month.
It started Tuesday morning when a federal judge in Portland said that Measure 114 could go into effect Thursday, including the ban on high-capacity magazines. But she said a Permit-to-Purchase would be put on hold for 30 days.
But just hours after that decision, a Harney County judge enjoined the measure, blocking it altogether. The Oregon Department of Justice said it would appeal to the state supreme court, adding that the measure won’t go into effect on Thursday.
It’s just the start in what is expected to be months and possibly years of judicial rulings that could go back-and-forth. Hear what a Redmond gun manufacturer has to say about it and his advice to others.
