  •  Oregon has some civil provisions (5+ / 0-)


    In Oregon, gun owners can be held liable in civil court if a gun injury is caused by negligence, and can be held responsible for damages in a wrongful death claim if the gun kills someone.
    Criminal liability?  Not so much:
    State Representative Sam Hunt said gun rights advocates have for years fought—and succeeded—in preventing new legislation that would strengthen restrictions on firearms sales at gun shows. “It’s pretty strong from the gun lobby that they don’t want to see any change (to stricter laws) under any circumstance,” Hunt said.

    Portland child gun death attorneys point out that many states have child access prevention laws whereby adults can be held criminally responsible for not properly storing their firearms or for allowing children to have access to guns.
