Is open carry allowed in Portland/and other major cities with a state concealed carry license? I've heard multiple answers on this one.... I know in Portland you are allowed to carry openly, just the gun must be unloaded. A 'no loaded weapons' law. And the multnomah co sheriffs office made it clear that my license allowed me to bypass any cities 'no loaded weapons' laws. But when I pressed them as to the legality of open carry, they declined to answer. Since I don't make a habit of OCing I didn't push it. But now I want to know. What happens if through a 'wardrobe malfunction' my weapon loses its concealment, or if I take off my jacket while at the store and my piece is showing?
