    Hay all!

    I am curious...

    Can a person in Oregon with a CHL carry a HG in a home, vehicle or public place that is considered lawful if that person is with another person who was once convicted of a felony over 10 years ago?

    If a person can't possibly be in control of the firearm, as it's on your hip or in a concealment holster, then no.

    The DC police do it every day they meet up with each other......:P

    But you are not doing anything wrong, the convict with you is the one who
    needs to sweat bullets. :X There is no law against having your gun in
    the presence of a felon. Otherwise every cop who apprehends a criminal
    would be breaking the law.
    If 10 years ago, I am assuming that parole is also over. So just don't get
    in a situation where ID'ing comes up.

    Could be a fun encounter when you explain to the leo that you cannot relinquish
    your gun to him, because that would leave it open for your 'goon' friend to
    gain access to it.

    Hi.

    I would say that this is a question best asked to a Lawyer.

    I do believe that you can carry, just as long as the felon is not in possesion.

    I think the issue will be if he is cohabiting with said felon, then if the firearm is in the house, they both have access and that can be a issue......maybe.

    Like I said, this is a question you need to ask a lawyer!!!

    It is not an issue to the gun owner, the associate may have issues with the law,
    but there is no law against carrying a firearm in the presence of a criminal,
    or a criminals domicile, it can be argued you must have it in the latter to
    protect yourself.

    The ex-con is the one who needs to check if he can get jacked up by over
    enthousiastic leo persecution.

    If it was illegal to have a gun in the presence of a criminal, then there is no
    way you could ever use one to protect yourself.
    There is no "I know the BG exception" to self defence.

    The only way you could get charged would be attempting to sell the gun to
    the friend and then only if you knew he was not allowed to have one.
