    I just read the 'Where can I not carry a firearm, even with a CHL' on the washington county website. I remember reading it before and it mentioned you could not carry in a school or even to their office while renewing your license or whatever. Which they also changed to say just not in the portion of the building occupied by the circuit court, and in the secured jail area.

    • "A. Oregon law provides very few limits on where a person with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) can carry a firearm, and federal laws contain a few more prohibitions. Even if you have a Concealed Handgun License, you cannot carry a firearm on any of the following properties:

      Federal facilities - federal courthouses, social security offices, in secured areas of airports, and on airplanes
      National forests marked or posted by signs prohibiting all firearms
      Indian reservations or Indian property - you may not carry a firearm concealed without the written permission of the tribal judge; this may also apply to certain casinos on Indian lands
      Courts - in a courtroom, jury room, judge's chambers or adjacent areas that the presiding judge determines should be free of firearms to ensure the safety of the litigants, court personnel, witnesses and others
      Private property where the owner prohibits firearms possession
      If you violate these conditions you could, under certain circumstances, be subject to arrest under Oregon trespass laws, in which case your concealed handgun license would be seized and/or revoked. Learn more, read ORS 166.370.

      No person may bring a firearm or weapon into that portion of this building occupied by the Washington County Circuit Court, except for a peace officer or federal officer on official duty. Violating these provisions may result in your arrest for a Class C felony, and could also result in your being found in contempt of court. ORS 166.370 and Uniform Trial Court Rule 6.180.

      No person may bring a firearm, weapon or other contraband into the secured perimeter of the Washington County Jail, and all visitors to the jail must go through a security screening and metal detector. Knowingly introducing contraband into a correctional facility is a Class C felony. ORS 162.185.

      All persons entering these premises may be subject to audio or visual surveillance."

    So this is a good thing that they are updating their documentation to follow the law.
