Oregon Democrats Look To Limit Magazines To Five Rounds, Limit Purchases To 20 Rounds Per Month

Remember, the Democrat talking point on firearms is that they do not want to take away anyone’s 2nd Amendment Rights, they just want to make it harder to use a firearm for a crime by bad people and for them to get them. They totally aren’t trying to interfere with the rights of the law abiding. Also, remember when 10 rounds was “safe”?


Legislation submitted in the Democrat-controlled Oregon legislature would fundamentally change the state’s firearm laws, recasting them as the most restrictive in the country.

State Sen. Rob Wagner has submitted SB 501 for the upcoming session. Wagner’s bill would require licensing for gun owners prior to purchase, outlaw firearm magazines capable of holding more than five rounds and limit individual ammunition sales to no more than 20 rounds every 30 days.

Wagner conceded to local media that it was “probably a long shot that something like this passes in whole cloth,” but is proceeding with the measure on behalf of a group of student gun control advocates. A Portland-area Democrat, Wagner was endorsed by New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown group who also contributed directly to his campaign last fall.

Besides its restrictions on ammunition and requirements for licensing, SB 501 would also mandate that background checks be delayed for 14-days so that state police can research would-be buyers, fine gun owners who failed to report lost or stolen firearms and require guns be locked up when not in use. There would be no grandfathering of magazines affected by the ban.

As Oregon Rep. Bill Post (R) noted, this would mean that you’d have to turn in a six shot revolver.

Notice that virtually everything would cause hardship to the law abiding gun owners, not criminals. It’s funny that these same gun grabbers never push laws to increase the penalties on the people who uses firearms in commission of a crime, eh?

Democrats have a super-majority in the Oregon general assembly and a Democrat governor, so, this isn’t as far fetched at passing as you might think.

I wonder how they will limit people going to other states to purchase more than 20 rounds? You can bet some enterprising people will set up ammo stores, do not even have to carry firearms, on the borders in Washington, Nevada, and Idaho (California would probably try and block them).

    Conservatives are going to start fleeing liberal states and move to conservative states. That would do two things.

    1. It would reduce the population of liberal states thus reducing their house representation.
    2. It would increase the population of conservative states and increase their house representation.

    With the deep state, the MSM and the democratic party all firmly in the communists hands there is little hope for this country as it stands now. A few years at most before the break up begins. The conservatives might want to start thinking about moving now.

    Ground floor opportunities. The leftist states will begin blocking migration of citizens while allowing people from all over the world to come and go as they please. Aint that some sheet?

      Start?? They are already in my area and trying as hard as possible to turn it into a shithold.

      Why do you think democrats are so keen on importing all those illegals. They’ll make up the difference.

    Once again the left is doing nothing to stop crime or criminals only to harm law abiding citizens. Add that to the “New Coup” attempt put out by the NYT. “Donald Trump was secretly working for Russia” is the nw Big Lie. Look for Jethro to start repeating that meme ad nauseam. The media and the DoJ are trying to perpetrate a coup at this point. Nobody can trust the law any more.

    When most auto pistols and almost every revolver comes able to hold more than 5 rounds the goal is obvious: make all firearms illegal. Even my little Baretta .380 holds 6 and that’s puny. I have a Ruger .22 revolver that holds 9. So the goal is obvious. Make citizens criminals.

    The obvious question is:
    What if you have to defend yourself against 6 or more attackers?
    Carry a spare?
