SALEM, OR -- An initiative petition aimed at protecting Oregonians' second amendment right has taken a big step toward the 2020 ballot. Supporters of IP-8 submitted 2,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office on Friday, for what they’re calling the Common Firearm’s Act. 

 

IP-8 would protect the right to own firearms and accessories that were legal in Oregon as of July first. it was initially created in response to IP-43, which would have banned some weapons; that petition has since been withdrawn. 
 
Once signatures are verified, Oregon’s Attorney General must write a ballot title and explanation before the "Don't Take Away My right to Defend My Family" committee can try to gather the 118,000 signatures required for the issue to be placed on the ballot in November 2020.
