If you live in Oregon then you know about 2015's SB 941 that banned the private sales and transfers to anyone other then family or in some circumstances borrowing and usage. I can't by law explain how one could by pass SB941 and I think that would also violate the sites rules. Our local County Sheriff as well as some in Oregon wont enforce the laws if a person does private sales. I am not addressing that either. However if one would like to understand hypothetically how the law works and fails I am here to help. This is not legal or moral advise !! August 1 2015 any private sale after that date was to require a FFL transfer the date SB941 went into affect. If a person bought a firearm prior to 8/1/2015 new from a a FFL or the gun was manufactured prior and sold to that date and if a private sale were to occur privately without an FFL after 8/1/2015 after that date it would not be traceable as by records it showed a old sale and if a person bought that firearm with out a FFL after 8/1/2016 there would be no record. As to the actual date the item was sold to a private person and could be said to have occurred prior to 8/1/2015. Hypothetical Example: Tom buys a new AK-47 from a store in February 2015 before the SB941 became law. He then decides to sell it to a private person after 8/1/2015 when the law was enacted and sell it to Bill. Bill doesn't want to do a transfer at a FFL and just do a private sale. If he does this and goes on his merry way Bill would only have to say he got the firearm prior to 8/1/2016 since the only record of sale existed at a FFL prior to SB941, some even have been said to get a pre-SB941 bill of sale with non accurate dates. ( obey the law do not by pass the law ). It would also mean any private sales done for years on older firearms that have not been purchased in recent years for sometime would never show a sale date, and transfers not be seen by any store, firearms like old Marlin 60's and SKS may have been bought 20 years ago and passed hand to hand privately these would show no sale date other then what Bill hypothetically chose to say he bought it. How ever Hypothetical if Tom bought a Firearms on 9/1/2015 from a store new after 8/1/2015 there would be a record the firearm was sold and kept at the OSP for a short time after SB941 went into affect. Means that if the serial numbers were ever checked it would show this gun was sold after the law went into affect and there would be a huge problem on a private sale. Oregon Democrats are working to add more time that records on sales are kept in the OSP database a sort of registry in another words. This mean sales would be held longer, many FFL's hold sales a very long time as well so important obey the laws. SB941 does not apply to me, that is my personal choice and I encourage all reader to obey the law. This post was for entertainment purposes only and is not legal advise or advising people to bypass any laws. It is illegal in Oregon to do a private sale without an FFL any other types of transfers a person does at there own risk. The above information was to help others understand the process. It is also illegal to speed on the highways, or cheat on Taxes . That should cover it. Prior to SB941 I only did private sales with Conceal Carry holders. I guess if SB941 did not exist and a person did a private sale today hypothetically they could use that system to avoid a sale going into the wrong hands.
