    Oregon concealed carry license reciprocity

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — House lawmakers have passed a bill allowing people with concealed handgun licenses from other states to use them in Oregon.

    But the concealed handgun license requirements in those other states would have to meet the same criteria as Oregon's.

    Good new! Too bad they have a training requirement.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    NV's is a significant training requirement, so maybe I'll finally have one for Oregon for my semiannual visits. Open carry is legal, but I didn't find it to be nearly as common as in Nevada, and especially with the places that were off limits, which is something we mostly don't have here.

    Devil is in the details of how closely they must match Oregon's criteria. We shall see....

    Looks good but in practice will be used to deny reciprocity to nearly everybody, much like Nevada does, only worse since Oregon just passed a major anti-gun law. That's assuming this passes, which I would say is about zero given how bold the liberals in the Oregon legislature are being lately regarding guns.

    We recognize 14 states' permits.

    Denying 70% could be argued to fall under denying to almost everybody.

    Reciprocity gets messy though. Increase freedom in your state and find you lost some freedom to carry elsewhere. MO lowered the CCW age to 19 and lost reciprocity with VA for example. It took a long time for MO to get reciprocity in WY as well due to MO not being as strict about prior misdemeanor disqualifications.

    IF this passes, I don't know of any way to predict how reciprocity will actual implement. I've been surprised over the years at some of the state decisions in the mater. I think it is just a wait and see matter.

    Fl has lost NV and WA. NV because Fl licenses are good for 7 years vs NV's 5. WA because Fl issues permits to certain 18 year olds but WA does not.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    National reciprocity law passed at the federal level would be nice.

    And this is from Oregons website.

    Requirement #11
    Demonstrate competence with a handgun by any one of the following means:

    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;

    Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    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;

    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;

    Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a handgun through participation in organized shooting competition or military service;

    Is licensed or has been licensed to carry a firearm in this state, unless the license has been revoked; or

    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.


    So, a simple DD214 should suffice. This is NOT a requirement in Washington State.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
