Oregon DOJ asks judge to delay part of Measure 114 for 2 months

The Oregon Department of Justice is asking a federal judge to delay the Permit-to-Purcashe requirement for Measure 114, the voter-approved gun control measure, for two months so that law enformcement can implement it.

The measure is set to go into effect on Thursday.

“Postponing the permit requirement by approximately two months should give Oregon law enforcement time to have a fully functional permitting system in place. If (U.S. District) Judge (Karin) Immergut agrees to the postponement, then starting in February anyone who purchases a gun in Oregon will be required to have a permit,” said Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum in a statement.

Under Measure 114, the permit will cost $65. That permit would be good for five years. After that, a $50 renewal would be required. A buyer would be fingerprinted and have to go through mandatory safety training. Plus, the buyer must undergo a criminal background check that could take up to 30 days, replacing the current three-day waiting period.
