Frank Hall, director of the Oregon Department of Corrections, visited the Powder River Correctional Facility in Baker City Saturday.

Hall’s visit was two-fold. First, he said, he doesn’t get the chance to get into the field that often, and this was the perfect opportunity. Second, he was at the prison to attend the graduation of 14 inmates from the prison’s Pathfinder program.

At least three Baker City gun dealers won’t be making any changes to their gun sale policies unless a new law is passed that would require a change.

Thatcher’s Ace Hardware store, which includes an independent sporting goods department separate from the Ace Hardware chain, Trader Ray’s, which sells new and used guns, and York’s Sporting Goods, will not raise the age limit for buyers of long rifles and ammunition from 18 to 21 or take AR-15 rifles off their shelves.

Several large national and regional retailers, including Bi-Mart, have done so since the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Bi-Mart has never stocked the AR platform rifles, according to a press release from the corporation announcing its decision to raise the minimum age for selling long guns from 18 to 21.
