Oregon's new background check gun law begins Sunday [View all]

SALEM, Ore. -- A change to Oregon's gun laws goes into effect Sunday, which will require universal background checks for all gun sales - even private ones.

While there are questions about how the law will be enforced, supporters think raising awareness will help make it successful.

Private gun sales are especially hard to track. But proponents told KGW they believe the new law will especially make a difference in targeting private Internet sales.

Supporters of the new law also cited research which found states that require background checks on all handgun sales saw 48% fewer gun suicides, 48% fewer law enforcement officers killed with handguns and 46% fewer women killed by their domestic partners.
