However from what I read into it, you would have to show him or risk an arrest.If I am legal to carry a loaded firearm (either by having a CHL in the 6 banned cities or in one that does not have a ban) I see no reason for the officer to examine my firearm. Say I am in Beaverton (which bans loaded firearms in public for those that don't have a CHL) and show the officer my CHL would he still be able to take my firearm to see if it's loaded?166.380 Examination of firearm by peace officer; arrest for failure to allow examination. (1) A peace officer may examine a firearm possessed by anyone on the person while in or on a public building to determine whether the firearm is a loaded firearm. (2) Refusal by a person to allow the examination authorized by subsection (1) of this section constitutes reason to believe that the person has committed a crime and the peace officer may make an arrest pursuant to ORS 133.310. [1969 c.705 §3]
The part about in or on a public building is murky, does this refer to public or locale owned land, and not to business or anything not owned by the state/county/town? Or any property other than your own?
