OR: Pastor who won Rifle to Destroy it Likly Violated new Firearms Ban on Private Transfers
Oregon Firearms Federation
According to the Washington Post, Reverend Jeremy Lucas violated SB 941. The Oregon Firearms Federation is calling for an immediate investigation and prosecution of Lucas and others.
In the linked story, Lucas, who won a rifle raffle using his congregation’s money, claims he “drove it to the home of a parishioner… who offered to keep the rifle locked up in a gun safe until the pastor is ready to destroy it.”
If the story is accurate, Rev. Lucas is in clear violation of the requirements of SB 941.
Unless the “parishioner” is a close family member of Lucas, this represents an illegal transfer under the Prozanski/Hoyle SB 941.
Thousands of Oregonians have been negatively affected by this dangerous legislation. An anti-Second Amendment crusader should not be allowed to flagrantly violate the law.
Oregon Firearms Federation is calling for an immediate investigation into the whereabouts of this rifle, the name and address of the person who is in possession of it, and full prosecution of any guilty parties.
