Baker County voters in November overwhelmingly approved an ordinance designed to prevent the enforcement of laws violating the Second Amendment and the ordinance could receive its first test later this year.

At least 12 bills have been introduced in the Oregon Legislature that deal with firearms or ammunition in some way.

Senate Bill 501, which has received the most publicity, is also the most restrictive.
