    While I see no restriction to your applying for and getting a permit on the application, others more familiar with Ohio law should be along shortly.

    Open carry (loaded or not) is covered by state preemption - note that a permit is required to OC in a vehicle.

    Lots of places named Springfield in the states. Not sure it matters, but it may help those with the knowledge to answer, or point you in the right direction if they knew which state your Springfield was in. And more about the misdemeanor.

    Ooops - I thought Ohio, yet this is in the Oregon sub-forum - my bad.

    No question but that the state of residence will change the responses.

    I'm assuming you live in Oregon and you're talking about the city next to Eugene.

    The statute on who can get a CHL is ORS 166.291.

    (a)(A) Is a citizen of the United States; or
    (B) Is a legal resident alien who can document continuous residency in the county for at least six months and has declared in writing to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services the intent to acquire citizenship status and can present proof of the written declaration to the sheriff at the time of application for the license;
    (b) Is at least 21 years of age;
    (c) Is a resident of the county;
    (d) Has no outstanding warrants for arrest;
    (e) Is not free on any form of pretrial release;
    (f) Demonstrates competence with a handgun by any one of the following:
    (A) Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the State Department of Fish and Wildlife or a similar agency of another state if handgun safety was a component of the course;
    (B) Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course if handgun safety was a component of the course;
    (C) Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by law enforcement, community college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or a law enforcement agency if handgun safety was a component of the course;
    (D) Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, reserve law enforcement officers or any other law enforcement officers if handgun safety was a component of the course;
    (E) Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a handgun through participation in organized shooting competition or military service;
    (F) Is licensed or has been licensed to carry a firearm in this state, unless the license has been revoked; or
    (G) Completion of any firearms training or safety course or class conducted by a firearms instructor certified by a law enforcement agency or the National Rifle Association if handgun safety was a component of the course;
    (g) Has never been convicted of a felony or found guilty, except for insanity under ORS 161.295, of a felony;
    (h) Has not been convicted of a misdemeanor or found guilty, except for insanity under ORS 161.295, of a misdemeanor within the four years prior to the application;
    (i) Has not been committed to the Oregon Health Authority under ORS 426.130;
    (j) Has not been found to be mentally ill and is not subject to an order under ORS 426.130 that the person be prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm as a result of that mental illness;
    (k) Has been discharged from the jurisdiction of the juvenile court for more than four years if, while a minor, the person was found to be within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court for having committed an act that, if committed by an adult, would constitute a felony or a misdemeanor involving violence, as defined in ORS 166.470;
    (L) Has not been convicted of an offense involving controlled substances or participated in a court-supervised drug diversion program, except this disability does not operate to exclude a person if:
    (A) The person has been convicted only once of violating ORS 475.864 (3) and has not completed a court-supervised drug diversion program under ORS 135.907; or
    (B) The person has completed a court-supervised drug diversion program under ORS 135.907 and has not been convicted of violating ORS 475.864 (3);
    (m) Is not subject to a citation issued under ORS 163.735 or an order issued under ORS 30.866, 107.700 to 107.735 or 163.738;
    (n) Has not received a dishonorable discharge from the Armed Forces of the United States; and
    (o) Is not required to register as a sex offender in any state.
    (2) A person who has been granted relief under ORS 166.274 or 166.293 or section 5, chapter 826, Oregon Laws 2009, or 18 U.S.C. 925(c) or has had the personís record expunged under the laws of this state or equivalent laws of other jurisdictions is not subject to the disabilities in subsection (1)(g) to (L) of this section.
    So you can get a CHL as far as I understand.

    If you have a CHL you can open carry nearly anywhere (except post offices, courtrooms, federal buildings, prisons and maybe a few other places). If you don't have a CHL, you can check the loaded ban cities thread to see if Springfield is there (or any other city). It looks like Springfield prohibits weapons in parks, but again, with a CHL you can lawfully conceal or open carry in a park in Springfield.

    Welcome to the forum by the way.

    Not the expert on the subject but sure sounds like it wouldn't be a problem. You could find some of the stuff here:http://licenseinfo.oregon.gov/index...._item_id=14704

    I'd think since you've already purchase firearms in OR that checks for carry would'nt turn anything up the purchase checks did not.
