With gun control and gun rights groups each calling for opposite outcomes, a measure to mandate expanding background checks for virtually all firearms transfers is set for its final review by Oregon lawmakers.

The measure, introduced in March as the “Oregon Firearms Safety Act,” passed the Oregon Senate by a 17-13 vote with one chamber Democrat jumping ship and casting her vote with the opposition Republicans. This in turn led to an epic 9-hour public hearing in front of a House committee that nonetheless ended with a 5-4 vote to advance the bill to a floor vote in a strict, party-line roll vote.
