Election Notes:
  • Ballot Measure 5 expands current state law by requiring that a person other than a gun dealer who transfers a firearm at a gun show request a criminal background check. Current law requires only gun dealers to request such background checks. The measure defines a "gun show" as an event where more than 25 firearms are at the site and available for transfer. The measure specifies information that a person other than a gun dealer must provide to the State Police when requesting a criminal background check and establishes deadlines for the State Police to respond. The State Police may charge a fee, as provided under existing Oregon law, for the additional background checks authorized by this measure.
