Just got my notice in the mail the other day that my OR, Wash. Co. CHL is up for renewal in Late Dec. I am currently recovering from some reconstructive surgery on my left foot so I really have no way to get to the courthouse unless my wife packs me up and hauls me there. The renewal clearly states that only active duty military can renew by mail, but I called to see if they make any exceptions for the handicapped. When I asked them if there were any exceptions they said no. I could let my license lapse and renew it when I was up and around with no penalty, but it would be illegal for me to carry concealed until I renewed. This kind of ticked me off, but the gal at the CHL office was just reciting the law as written so I figured it wouldn't do any good to chew on her. It's just frustrating that they apparently don't give a **** if you are handicapped. Oh well. Rant over on that piece. I did find out that there has been a change since last year (at least last year is what she said) where not only do you have to bring your driver' license and previous CHL in when you renew, but you also have to bring proof of citizenship such as a US Passport, US Birth Certificate, or Naturalization papers. When did they slip that one through? It's no problem for me, but it looks like they just put up another unneeded road block for CHL holders to renew. BTW, it you do chose to use a passport for proof of citizenship, it does not have to be current, you can use and expired passport. Anyways, FYI.
