'Blatantly unconstitutional': Strict gun control law faces new NRA-backed legal challenge
Measure 114 passed with just 50.65% of the vote last month. It bans ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and mandates the creation of a permit-to-purchase system that includes hands-on firearm training and fingerprinting.
The measure's sponsors hope it will rein in violent crime, suicides and accidental deaths in the state.
The measure takes effect Dec. 8, at which point local police expect "all gun sales by dealers, at gun shows and most private transfers in Oregon will immediately stop," according to a statement from the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police.
