Senate Bill 501 is scheduled to be introduced into the legislature by two Oregon lawmakers Monday.
The bill proposes to require permits for all gunowners, require people to undergo background checks before purchasing or sharing ammunition and would limit purchases to 20 rounds with a 30-day period, although people could purchase and use unlimited ammunition at shooting ranges. It would also ban magazines that hold more than five rounds of ammunition. It would require people to securely store their guns and report the loss or theft of a firearm to law enforcement within 24 hours.
The bill is sponsored by Democrat Senator Rob Wagner of Tualatin and Democrat Representative Andrea Salinas of Lake Oswego.
