A proposal to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in Oregon was submitted as a ballot initiative petition in March.
The initiative would have required legal gun owners to surrender or register their assault weapons or face felony charges. It also would have required owners of assault weapons to sell, surrender or remove the weapons from the state, or render them inoperable, within 120 days of the bill’s passage.
The initiative never made it to the November ballot. Supporters said they will set their sights on 2020.
