Oregon Court Extends Temporary Restraining Order

A Harney County Court in Oregon extended a temporary restraining order to keep Oregon’s Ballot Measure 114 from going into effect until Dec. 23. Another hearing in the case will take place then on a motion for a preliminary injunction seeking to stop this gun control ballot measure from taking effect.

The narrowly passed measure, called “Changes to Firearm Ownership and Purchase Requirements Initiative,” threatens to halt the lawful sale of firearms in Oregon, which would deny the most basic Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. That right begins with the ability for lawful purchasers to obtain a firearm through the legal sale from a licensed firearm retailer. Oregon’s “permit-to-purchase” scheme is antithetical to the Second Amendment. Additionally, the measure’s ban on magazines with a capacity for more than 10 cartridges is also being challenged as unconstitutional.

The strict gun control law was due to go into effect Dec. 8, but the Oregon court delayed that until Dec. 13, which is now extended 10 more days. Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum’s earlier effort to have the temporary restraining order lifted was rebuffed by the Oregon Supreme Court Chief Judge.
