    An Oregon state agency is suggesting that Walmart's decision to restrict arms sales to bar people under 21, but over 18, from being able to purchase firearms violates state law. In the wake of the shooting this past February at Majorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, there were a number of calls made for changes in the law.

  • Oregon retailers can't bar gun sales based on age

    Aug 23, 2018 | via OregonLive.com 

    Oregon retailers cannot discriminate against gun buyers based on their age, according to a ruling this week by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries. Hannah Brumbles, an 18-year-old from Deer Island in unincorporated Columbia County, filed a complaint with the state after a Walmart store in St. Helen's refused to sell her a rifle or ammunition last February because she was younger than 21. Oregon law allows individuals 18 and older to purchase firearms, but a variety of regional and national retailers, including Walmart, adopted more restrictive policies following the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
