Personally I think it's a "nessary evil" to blunt Tri Mets "policies" that attempt to thrump state law. Tri Met is publicly funded and thus you can not be excluded from partaking in your constutional right to protect yourself with a fire arm; on your person.
The rub is you should expect to be accused of breaking other lawsso they canremove you from the transit system. Remember you have a handgun and every on can see it. That could scare someone.
But hey, if you follow the suggestionsof Tri Met security personal and "cover it up" and lets say..... you don't have a CHL. Then they could tell the police they saw a weapon on you and you get arrested for a having concealed weapon At least your not on the train scaring people any more. Yay Tri Met.
I say... OC in plubic and don't budge when asked to hide it. With a CHL carry loaded. Without a CHL carry your hammer proudly as if it were loaded. On private property obey the wishes of the property owner. If they don't lke guns, don't spend your money there.
Tri Met likes our money, we should all ride the train w/ guns displayed.My gut feeling is the crime would evaporate and riding the train might bea good experience for a change.
