...same as the old boss. Actually, a little worse. The former sheriff Gordon recently passed the baton to [the now new] sheriff Pat Garrett. I called down to the Washington County sheriff's office to inquire of his policy regarding issuing CHL's to border state residents, and it hasn't changed. A border-state resident must have a compelling business interest in Washington County before they would even consider it. I was sure to clarify with the clerk that Sheriff Garrett was the one who made that decision to continue the trend. Don't these people read the document they swore to uphold? If someone passes the background check and they've proven basic handgun safety by taking a class from a certified instructor (even though none of those things have anything to do with the 2A), who cares where they're from? Why not take the money for the county? There's no logic to it. Another unfortunate thing is (more than likely effecting mainly WA county residents) Sheriff Garrett has decided to NOT accept online training certificates. Thankfully, there's sheriffs like Glenn Palmer in Grant County Oregon who take their oath to the Constitution seriously. Notable mentions are Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton and Josephine County Gil Gilbertson who will issue to border state residents as well.
