(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Legislature will consider a measure intended to close a loophole for gun buyers.  The House bill would require that all potential buyers undergo a background check that doesn't have a time limit.  Current law says if a background check takes longer than three days, the buyer can get the gun, regardless of what's found in the background check.  The bill's sponsor, Representative Jennifer Williams, says most gun buyers pass a background check within minutes, and if it takes longer, it should raise a red flag.
