SALEM, OR (KPTV) - A new gun-safety bill is expected to work its way through the Oregon legislature this session.
The possible changes include strengthening the requirements needed to get a get permit, as well as limiting how much ammunition can be purchased in a 30-day window.
Senate Bill 501 is already drawing some backlash from gun-rights groups, who are calling the measure an attack on the Second Amendment.
Legislators who are sponsoring the bill say it will make common-sense changes to keep Oregonians safe.
Similar gun-safety measures have been proposed in recent years but have failed to get on a ballot.
