Petitioners have begun gathering signatures on gun control initiative petitions IP17 and IP18.
IP17 imposes a new permit system to purchase a firearm and prohibits possession or use of magazines over 10 rounds.
IP18 prohibits manufacturing/possession/transferring of many semiautomatic firearms and their use on public lands.
The petitioners need to obtain 112,000 signatures by June 2022 to get their measures on the November 2022 ballot.
OHA is working closely with gun advocate groups to defeat these petitions.
