Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Sure. Relatives gives me their gun for protection. I shoot someone. Is the relative liable in anyway or just me. Are there any addition charges against me for using a gun not registered to myself. I live in Oregon. This is a hypothitical situation.

Oregon does not require license or registration of a firearm. The only time that license is required is if you want to carry it concealed.


So normally if there is some type of temporarily transfer such as for hunting or target shooting no written document is needed. However, if one individual gives another individual a gun lets say for protection there should be a bill of sale (if only for $1) or the ownership can be transferred through any gun shop.


Here are some of the laws that someone who wants to transfer a gun has to adhere to, and if they don't they can be charged with a crime:


It is unlawful to sell, deliver, or transfer any firearm to:

  • A minor under the age of 18.


  • A convicted felon, who has not had his civil rights restored.


  • A person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor involving violence or found guilty, except for insanity, within the previous four years.


  • A person listed in the Health Division Registry.


  • A person who has been committed to the Dept. of Human Services.


  • A person who has any outstanding felony warrants for arrest.


  • A person who is free on any form of pretrial release for a felony.
