Several Senators are pushing to have the Oregon Legislature vote on some gun control laws - but experts say the interest just isn't there.

 

Speaking on the "Lars Larson" show Tuesday, Kevin Starlett with the Oregon Firearms Federation says he's hoping these issues will come to a vote, just for the record.

 

"I’d love to see them vote on it. Because when we have a recorded vote, then we can tell people, this is a senator who is anti-gun. Alan Bates doesn't want to vote on it; Arnie Roblan doesn't want to vote on it because they're in districts that have a lot of gun owners in them. But I think they should be on the record." 

 

The four laws include background checks for gun sales within families; outlawing guns at schools; another would prohibit visible guns in public buildings and outlaw online gun safety training.

 

Starlett says there are some "diehard" Democrats hoping to get a vote on the issues voted on, because they just want to take away people's rights, but these laws would have a hard time passing.
