Oregon Lawmakers Face Recall Following Gun Control Votes

Among those targeted is Sen. Chuck Riley, D-Hillsboro, a lead sponsor of SB 941, a proposal that would expand background checks to include most private gun transfers. The freshman senator came to the chamber last fall as part of a $600,000 influx of cash from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund that allowed him to narrowly unseat a GOP incumbent who was against expanding checks. In the House, Rep. Susan McLain, D-Forest Grove, and Majority Leader Val Hoyle, D-Eugene, who have voiced support for SB 941 and are now tasked with guiding it through that body, are also facing similar recall votes, The Oregonian reported.
