    Corvallis considering open carry ban

    Supposedly some guy carried in a park and some lady had a fit about it. Follow-up article about the city council considering a ban. Having not open carried very much lately, I will definitely be open carrying in Corvallis if they decide to pass a law against it.

    Anybody know anything about the guy that was killed at a Eugene high school?

    http://www.registerguard.com/rg/news/local/30764943-75/officer-police-churchill-shooting-eugene.html.csp The order of events seems odd to me, almost as if the guy was openly carrying? I know this wasn't Hoss, but I'm not sure if the killed man might have been known by any (or was a member) on...

    Lawsuit against Corvallis PD officer settled in favor of pro se plaintiff

    tl;dr: Sued Corvallis PD officer in federal court for unlawful detainment, won. This post has been on my mind for some time, and finally I feel that I can share it with you all, as the dismissal of the case was filed today. As you may or may not remember, on October 26, 2011 (ironically the...

    SB 1594 modified to be about schools and firearms

    Dogbait mentioned this in the Board of Higher Education thread, figured it'd be nice to have this separated out. SB 1594 has been changed: http://oregonfirearms.org/alertspage/2012%20alerts/02.28.12%20alert.html Here's the proposed changes (I believe this is the latest)...

    Hollywood shooting a few days ago

    I'm kind of surprised nobody posted the video of the guy in Hollywood that was standing in the middle of the street and shooting at people for a while. Figured it should be included in the collection of random shootings in California that could have easily been stopped had the state respected...

    Riverside Walmart open carry

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2JsnisqJkE&list=UUsC_iztNv2b3jRQF-TC6YKw&feature=plcp Large police turnout for a large group of men and women exercising their rights. Weapons drawn by police officers, a pain compliance hold (I believe) was used, and the officers let several armed individuals...

    Requirement to show CHL during traffic stop?

    If an officer pulls you over and finds out you have a CHL, are you required to show it (assuming you haven't admitted to having a concealed weapon)? I'm guessing that there is no requirement since I haven't found any information that says otherwise, but I figure somebody here might know the...

    Video of Riverside PD encounter at mall

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32YhA-lZAKs Don't know if the participants are members here or not. RPD detains several people for a while but ends up not doing any 12031(e) checks. RPD also brings a shotgun to the food court. Fun stuff.

    On public school/university grounds without a permit?

    I'm guessing there is case law that will clarify this, but I don't know it. Hopefully somebody does. ORS 166.360(4) states: Obviously if I'm open carrying without a CHL I can't go into a school building. But can I go onto school grounds? The law is less than clear on the subject and the Oregon...

    Canal+ is a french television station that did a piece on open carry in the United States. They visited members of the Virginia Defense League and came out to San Francisco to film a trash pickup event and then later hang with the Livermore open carriers for a day of shooting. It's in French...
