    We've been saying we wanted to do this for a long time now, so lets do it already :D

    Who: Everyone
    What: Open Carry Lunch
    When: Cancelled
    Where: ??

    I've never organized nor attended one of these, but I know quite a few of you have, so I'm hoping you can help out with this. It always seems the most difficult part of organizing anything is selecting a date, so I've already done the hard part for us.

    So the Izzy's won't work, since it's closed. I wonder if Red Robin would have enough seating? Any other suggestions for places around Wilsonville or Lake Oswego? What's the standard procedure as far as notifying the restaurant? If we have 20 or more people show up, which is entirely possible, they're going to have to be notified so they'll have adequate space set aside. What courtesies do we give? I know it's not *required*, but do we also notify them we'll be carrying? Do we notify the local LE department?

    I'm planning on printing up some literature, both for our own knowledge and for us to give to those who are curious. Anything else you guys can think of? I'd love to hear everyones thoughts and opinions.

    Here's the list of confirmed attendees:

    1. Mr. Link
    2. JennyC
    3. m4ttkim
    4. elcid11
    5. stitchclimber
    6. wakejoe

    So everybody wears their firearms in the open and has lunch hoping people will ask questions and get into guns? Am I missing the concept because I think any non gun owner would just plain be scared if they saw that lol.

    What if you have your CHL? My understanding is if you have it, it
    MUST be concealed.:confused:

    yes you can open carry.

    Open carry is legal statewide,
    Some cities have ordinances against loaded weapons.
    Concealed Carry Permit bypasses all city loaded weapons bans.

    IE Open carry is leagal in Portland with a valid concealed carry license.

    State info below:

    here's the state ordinance.

    Cool. I guess we covered that in your original thread, but I wasn't sure about statewide. That is cool. It would still feel a little weird going into a restaurant with 20 other people wiht pistols on their side. Or maybe I would just be nervous.:(

    The point is to inform the public, because honestly, most of the general population doesnt know anymore about guns then what the media feeds them. Its a chance to tell the other side of the story, that not all people with guns are bad people. If we can get some literature on the matter and print out some pamphlets, we can hand them out as well.

    Sure, people might ask questions, but that is their right! As is ours to carry :thumbup:

    Maybe we should open carry and pick up trash in portland or something sometime. :)

    Gun owners are bad!... .. But picking up trash even still.
