    Portland

    I support open carry, but this guy said he did it in Portland which unfortunately is illegal.

    Correction

    Portland has restriction to loaded open carry, you can un-loaded open carry if the firearm is un-loaded and the magazine is empty. (I know, that last part bothers me also). Note: with a CHL you can loaded OC or CC in Portland, but expect to be stopped and checked since LEOs would need to verify you are un-loaded or CHL holder.

    166.173 Authority of city or county to regulate possession of loaded firearms in public places.
    (1) A city or county may adopt ordinances to regulate, restrict or prohibit the possession of loaded firearms in public places as defined in ORS 161.015.

    Ok. I'll bite. Why was it illegal?

    With a permit you can carry a loaded firearm in Portland. Without a permit, you can carry an unloaded firearm.

    Ah. Lord Sega. I wanted him to tell me why it was illegal.
    PS. It's a magazine.
