Oregon Supreme Court leaves in place order blocking strict new gun law
A new, strict gun law in Oregon remains on hold after the state's high court said it would not grant an emergency motion to overturn a lower court's ruling.
Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha Walters issued the ruling Wednesday, denying the request from Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum to reinstate the law, known as Measure 114. The law had been set to take effect on Thursday.
The Oregon Supreme Court ruled to keep in place a lower court ruling that blocked a strict new gun law that voters approved by passing a measure on November's ballot.
