Minor marijuana convictions prior to 1973 and Gun Registration Bill Moves To Rules Committee!!

Yesterday I told you about HB 4035 which allows some corrections officers to keep guns in their cars when they go to work. That bill passed out of House Judiciary today with”no” votes from Representative Carolyn Tomei. I think this is a mistake. Until the DOC agrees to something like this, Corrections Officers should not be easy prey on their way to and from work. Tomei’s objection was her guaranteed”no” on any bill that includes the word”gun” but does not include the word”ban.” Another bill I told you about yesterday, HB 4068, will allow persons who have been convicted of minor marijuana violations in other states to have the same access to CHLs that people who had similar convictions in Oregon have. It will also grant this to persons who had minor marijuana convictions prior to 1973. Once again, Representative Carolyn Tomei HD 41 voted”no.” All other committee members voted YES.
