I'd like some input gentlemen (and ladies). Today I visited a Portland gun dealer to buy the pistol I've been researching for awhile but I was refused and this is why. I am an Oregon Citizen. I was living in a N.E. Portland home about a year ago. I committed myself to moving out of this home and into a different home in Portland. On the day I was actually moving my things into the new house, I discovered through personal observation and reference checks that the guy who represented himself to me as the house owner/landlord was mentally unstable and a con artist. Not being able to move back in to the old house and not being able to follow through moving into the new house, I was stuck. A friend from Washington offered to let me stay at their house as a guest until I made different arrangements. I am registered to vote in Oregon and intend to move back to Oregon as soon as possible, but because I could not put a physical Oregon address on the federally mandated gun purchase paperwork, I was banned from exercising my right to contract with this dealer in order to exercise my right to own a firearm. I have no criminal record and I am an honorably discharged veteran of Desert Storm. The dealer told me he agreed with me about the obscenity of the situation but that he was without a remedy for me. I am very disturbed by this arbitrary deprivation of my rights and would love to hear some feedback from someone who is informed about these matters. Thanks and I look forward to all constructive replies.
