Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) signed a new gun safety legislation into law on Monday.
The bill expands an existing law to prevent intimate partners who have a domestic violence or stalking conviction from buying and keeping guns. Previously, the state’s law only applied to married partners. The new measure closes what was termed the “boyfriend loophole”.
In other news, Florida state legislators voted on Saturday to keep AR-15s legal.
And an Oregon man filed suits Monday claiming Dick’s Sporting Goods and Walmart discriminated against the 20-year-old when they refused to sell him a rifle.
