RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I live in Oregon, I've had a CHL for 4 years. I carry concealed most of the time. At work I carry open sometimes, my employer is fine with that. When I see someone open carry in public I find my self wanting to ask them about there gun and what kind of ammo the use.
The only time I'm concerned about open carry for myself is when I'm going into stores. Mostly I just keep in concealed.
I do want to bring something up however.
According to State law in Oregon a CHL holder may carry in ANY public place except Court houses, Native land and Federal buildings.
OSU and U of O are public places as is the Portland Airport and the Malls yet they display signs posting even CHL holders cannot carry on there property.
This is illegal correct?
I have read a few story's about people getting arrested then released but not convicted for conceal carry in such places. So is it my understanding they just want to scare people off that have the right to carry?
I would like this to be clear and printed so I can carry a copy on me if I was harassed, not that I'm looking for trouble I just want to be prepared.
