QUESTION: Are they going to deny me my CHL because I had a misdemeanor or DUI in the last 4 years?
ANSWER: Nope - but establish a residential address in the next county just to make it less stressful.
They should deny you if it was a misdemeanor.
The statute should read on the ors website but its tougher to deal with on my phone
ORS 166.291 - Issuance of concealed handgun license - 2011 Oregon Revised Statutes
I see this differently. You think you could get a permit to carry in CA? You might be able to but CA is may issue. Depending on the county this could result in a denial. Some counties won't usually issue to most people to begin with. Maybe you were lucky an lived in one that would. I'm no expert on CA laws but generally appreciate our laws here when I compare them.
Looks like you'll have to wait a year. I guess it wouldn't hurt to drop by and ask the sheriff for clarification before you put in your application.
Getting a DUI can be very embarrassing, I understand. It sounds like you've done a good job of making responsible choices since your mistake and hopefully after another year of not running afoul of the law you will be able to successfully apply for your license.
Keep up the good work and Happy Holidays to you as well!
What was your BAC?
Let me know how it goes, in the same boat. Got one 3 1/2 years ago, but would like to get my CHL. Same as you DUI is the only mark on my record and have been out of trouble since.
Are you going to initial this line on the application?
and this one?
It doesn't matter what your BAC. D.U.I.I. stands for Driviner Under the INFLUENCE of Intoxicants. People react differently to alcohol. You can blow under .08 and still be arrested for DUII. .08 is just the legal slam dunk that you are in face legally drunk. You can get a DUII from Nyquil, or any other INTOXICANT that impairs your ability to responsibly drive a vehicle on the road.
You shouldn't have any issues. But bear in mind that Oregon has in essence, a "may-issue" policy for anyone convicted of ANYTHING. Oregon's language is really permissive of CLEOs.
Congrats! (Drive sober )
