You need the CHL to carry loaded in Portland.
with the recent headline http://www.katu.com/news/local/Portl...l?abc=kf8RRNt0
would 166.260 override this without having a CHL?
You need the CHL to carry loaded in Portland.
So, in Portland, we have the right to bear arms with no teeth. I guess that means you need a "GOVERNMENT PERMITION SLIP" to bear arms that are useful in Portland.
So, is it a "Right to Bear Arms", or a "Government Permission slip to Bear Arms"?
Since I'm not local, I had to google to find 166.260
Looks like 1h (a license) is the only defense that would apply to most people for carrying concealed (166.250). Although 3a (going to or coming from a range) would be pretty easy to claim.
The only thing it says about OC is that OC is not cc.
Says nothing about the pistol being loaded.
I hope this goes to SCOTUS. The OR SC ruling is just stupid.

This case did not answer the secondary question that is: "What does ORS 166.173(2)(c) actually mean?" the wording says "license to carry a concealed weapon" so, is my interpretation correct (I read that as "any license to carry a concealed weapon") or is the prevailing thought in OR that it means only an OR CHL.
While it is well known and acknowledged that if you wish to conceal you must have an Oregon CHL, or meet an exemption in ORS 166.260, however, to be exempt from ORS 166.173 (and also exempt from whatever local law is based on that law) has not been through the courts yet,
Having a CHL doesn't not require a person to carry CC, it just gives the person the option to carry CC or OC loaded.
The part that needs challenging is the "unloaded magazine" part of Portland's ordinance which is not allowed by ORS 166.173.
I agree they should have been consistent in stating "A person who is licensed under ORS 166.291 and 166.292 to carry a concealed handgun" rather than "A person licensed to carry a concealed handgun". As written you could make the argument, but I wouldn't want to have to.

Since carrying an unloaded weapon without a CHL is lawful and carrying a loaded one with a CHL is lawful, it occurs to me that the police, under the requirements of TERRY to non consensually stop an individual, would be required to have particularized suspicion that 1) the weapon is loaded and 2) that the carrier does not have a CHL.
Absent particularized suspicion that the carrier fails to meet those criteria, the police would seem to be lacking the authority to detain (seize) a citizen in order to check (search) the load condition of the weapon and, if loaded, whether the carrier possesses a CHL. They could still attempt a "consensual" (i.e. intimidating presence, wiggle words, etc.) encounter in an attempt to get the citizen to "cooperate" and/or make an incriminating statement.
It is seriously time to start pushing back against the BS in Portland by using existing laws and creating scenarios that further the cause. For instance, carry a weapon in a holster from which the police are incapable of removing it (even if that requires gluing the weapon into the holster). Imagine their consternation when they can't get the weapon out of the holster to check it and the carrier refuses to cooperate......you can't resist but neither do you have to cooperate. So, without any suspicion that the weapon is loaded, will they seize it? Seize the carrier? Toss in a belt from which the holster can't be removed and which is physically locked to the carrier and you can add yet another layer of confusion to the officers.
Make sure everything is audio and video recorded by multiple resources and you have the makings of a civil suit, if they violate (they will) the carriers rights and there may be a bit of leverage to get Portland to revise their tyrannical BS.
ALSO: The carrier should be "sterile" (i.e. no ID, no smart phone, etc.)

This just disgusts me but here it is.
Multnomah county code 15.064 (C)
It is unlawful for a person who possesses a firearm, clip or magazine in or upon a public place, or while in a vehicle in a public place, to refuse to permit a peace officer to inspect that firearm clip or magazine after the peace officer has identified himself or herself as such. The prohibitions of this subsection do not apply to or affect the persons listed in sub section (B) of this section.

Pretty much they want you to wear a scarlet letter and discourage you from carrying a firearm unless you identify yourself. Or carry without ammo and a permission slip.
...i hope multnomah fails in enforcing that stupid and arrogant law.
Also, I did not know the supreme court gave that much wiggle roo,...
