LOCAL AUTHORITY TO REGULATE FIREARMS IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS
SECTION 25. (1) A city, a county, a metropolitan service district organized under ORS
chapter 268, or a port operating a commercial service airport with at least 2 million passenger
boardings per calendar year may adopt an ordinance limiting or precluding the use of the

public buildings, within each entity’s respective jurisdiction, by persons licensed to carry a

(2) A school district, college or university may adopt a policy limiting or precluding the
use of the affirmative defense described in ORS 166.370 (3)(g) concerning the possession of
firearms in public buildings by persons licensed to carry a concealed handgun under ORS
166.291 and 166.292.

(3) An entity that adopts an ordinance or policy under this section shall post a sign,
visible to the public, identifying all locations where the affirmative defense described in ORS
166.370 (3)(g) is limited or precluded.

(E) A city hall; [or]
(F) The residence of any state official elected by the state at large, [and the grounds adjacent
to each such building.] if the residence is owned by the state; or
(G) The [term also includes that] portion of any other building owned, occupied or controlled
by an agency of the state or a municipal corporation, as defined in ORS 297.405, other than a court
facility[.];
(b) The grounds, other than a parking area, adjacent to a building described in paragraph

(10) “Weapon” means:
(a) A firearm;

SECTION 27. ORS 166.370 is amended to read:
166.370. (1) Any person who intentionally possesses a loaded or unloaded firearm or any other
instrument used as a dangerous weapon, while in or on a public building, shall upon conviction be
guilty of a Class C felony.
I'm pretty sure that the criminal that commits a crime listed here will:
1- Not read it
2- Not be able to read it
3- Not understand what they're reading (lawyer talk)
4- Not care

The Pitfall began when KB took the thrown. These people of one party are self centered Idiots. All the things that has made Oregon a good place are becoming history .
^^^That's exactly right (my emphasis)

I've never seen a bigger group more self-centered and entitled little narcissists. They are too chickensh* to go get what they want, so they demand it simply be given to them.

This is the result of Californians who screwed up their state so bad that they had to move to Oregon and Washington. The only problem is they continue to think their utopian dream will be achieved here using the same laws that have created every socialist country in history, none of which are, or ever where, utopian. What's the answer? Buy more guns !!!

It hurts my brain to think of the folks, right here on NWFA, that refused to vote for Knute Buehler because he wasn't "Right" enough for them. :( Geezus, had Knute been at the helm now he would have been able to temper the rabid democrats that are steam rolling these laws into existence.
