The Portland City Council will consider supporting a bill to require all background checks to be conducted on virtually every gun sale in the state as part of its “State Legislative Agenda” for the upcoming session in Salem.

Practically the only exception would be sales between relatives.

The law already requires background checks to be conducted on sales at licensed gun stories and from licensed gun dealers. A bill to extend background checks to gun sales between private parties, except relatives, will be introduced to the legislative session that begins on Feb. 3.
