In this short legislative session, two lawmakers are focusing on bills related to handguns. Rep. Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer) introduced legislation that would allow concealed weapons permits to be themselves concealed from public records requests.Sen. Ginny Burdick (D-Portland) has introduced legislation that would address that issue directly. She's sponsoring a bill that would ban guns and other "dangerous weapons" on school grounds and another that would ban them in all public buildings. Burdick told the Oregonian her bills are a reaction to Thatcher's bill.
Senator Floyd Prozanski has scheduled three gun bills(Feb. 8th)
