Lawmakers are hearing a lot about House Bill 3200. The bill bans semi auomatic firearms and high capacity gun magazines.
State Senator Tim Knopp says people are letting their opinions be known on that bill.
"The big issues -- which has gotten a lot of people upset in House Bill 3200. We've gotten 1200 to 1500 emails and phone calls. It essentially puts a ban on guns in circulation today and also authorizes warrantless searches. I believe it's unconstitutional and a lot of people are concerned about that."
The bill is sponsored by democratic Representative Mitch Greenlich of Portland -- though he too is disillusioned with the bill and feels it goes too far.
The bill has yet to be scheduled for a hearing.
