So I am trying to figure out how I can carry my gun at work. With business dress it is impossible for me to conceal my handgun. I work in an office and was thinking about getting a case that I could leave in my bag. I am around my desk for the majority of the day. I sometimes have to go to court in Portland and was reviewing the Portland gun laws. I noted that part of the section states: A. It is unlawful for any person to knowingly possess or carry a firearm, in or upon a public place, including while in a vehicle in a public place, recklessly having failed to remove all the ammunition from the firearm. B. It is unlawful for any person to knowingly possess or carry a firearm and that firearms clip or magazine, in or upon a public place, including while in a vehicle in a public place, recklessly having failed to remove all the ammunition from the clip or magazine. So I am exempt since I have my CHL but when I lock my gun is in my safe in the my truck does it have to be unloaded? I would think that I could leave the gun loaded. I know that it is virtually impossible that someone would discover the gun while I was not in the vehicle. However, when I was younger my girlfriend was dropping me off at my vehicle and I found two cops in it. They told me that an alarm in a building had gone off and that I had left my passenger door unlocked. They had rifled thru my truck and would have found a gun if I had one in there at the time.
