Hello all. I am not sure if this has been asked before, I could not find any thread on it. So I applied for my CHL, took my class, paid my fees and did the finger printing. Four weeks later I receive a denial letter stating I could pose a threat to myself or the community. (Multnomah county) The reason for the denial is because two years ago the police came out, they got a call from someone saying I had a loaded gun and I was a suicide risk. I was not suicidal I was drunk and stupid. I have now been sober for a year and plan to stay that way. They took my firearms temporarily and brought me to the hospital where I was released that night. There were no charges and they released my firearms back to me after 24 hours. I have since purchased firearms and passed the background checks. So you can see my confusion. I can own and buy firearms but, I cant carry? I have not been in any other trouble before or after this incident at all. The letter states I have 30 days to petition but, I don't know how to start. If anyone can help or has any advice that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
