Oregon state law allows open carry anywhere in the state. But they put into that law an option for cities to pre-empt that. The CHL portion just doesn't allow them to deny a CHL the right/ability to carry there.

Seems to me I recall that Pdx, Beaverton and Salem prohibit open carry? So, if Antifa comes down my Cedar Hills street, I can not be on my front porch with a shot gun across my lap?
Correct, but its ok if you have a CHL(at least if its a handgun), that said I've seen zero people open carry in the area. Don't worry about it, I'm in the same area and if I see anything go down I'll be willing to help out.

I believe that if you are on your own property you can carry openly if you want. The issue would arise if you went off the property onto someone else's or onto public property. But if you are wandering around in public view carrying a rifle or a shotgun I would imagine that you would get a police car to stop in for a check. You'd still be in the right but they would be doing a check because someone would call in.

You can even open carry a long gun.... several 2A “activist” did just that in PDX and Salem who have the same restrictions as “Beavertown“.... the OSP was checking for CHL’s in Salem and letting dudes go in their way open carrying long guns.
