    I recieved this letter today.In a nutshell the clackamas co sheriff and some legal councel think they have a way to keep our chl file and our personal information private.Anybody with a clackamas CHL should go to the Clackamas co.Sheriffs website and read the letter...download the form...fill it out and send it in as soon as possable.Here is the link...

    I filled out a similar form (for the same reasons) for Washington Co. The last newsletter I received stated 7000+ of the ~10000 Washington Co. CHL holders had returned their forms.

    That may bring up a good point. What is gonna happen going forward for those of us that don't have a CHL yet and want one? Will we not get the choice in weather our info will be public or not?

    If I'm not mistaken, the Washington Co. application has the same questionaire on it. I'm not sure about other county applications.

    My wife renewed in Yamhill County a couple of weeks ago. The
    form to keep info private was a part of the renew paperwork.

    Whether it's a one time thing or has to be filled out at future
    renewals I don't know.

    While filling out paperwork for WA County, they informed me that the new forms have the option to make your information public or not. So you can choose to keep it private.

    They would like to have it by the 12th, but I think they will take it after that in your case. Swoop

    So does Multnomah county also have this option, does anybody know? Oregon CHL records access was a topic of a recent investigator's discussion we had recently.

    I got my letter Saturday the 10th. There was no way I could mail it in but luckily I live just blocks from the Multnomah sheriff's office so I just ran it over. A friend of mine took his by yesterday and said quite a few folks were there, mostly pretty upset. Apparently they were being told a meeting would be held Tuesday to address their concerns but given no other details. Supposedly this turned out to be a briefing open only to reporters and I havn't heard any media attention yet.

    I live in clackamas county,my letter from sheriff Craig Roberts states that he intends to work with fellow sheriffs for passage of legislation that would exempet CHL files from public disclosure. He also states that it is his belief that CHL files should be private and not disclosed. Don't know about multnomah or washington county, but wouldn't count on the liberal press to help us much.

    As far as I can see...If they release my chl info it would be the same as revealing that I am carrying.If everyone knows Im carrying then it no longer is concealed.So...they might just as well give up the concealed permit thing and just asume Im am armed at all times....

    The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office had me fill out a non-disclosure form when I went in to renew a few weeks ago. They also mailed a form to my wife to fill out and return, and when she phoned them they recomended that she DRIVE IT OVER TO THEM! their fax and e-mail systems have been flooded with returns, and they are afraid that if you try to submit the form in that manner, your reply might not get through. Also, remember that the spot provided on the CWP form for your Social Security number is VOLUNTARY! Don't provide it. You will be much safer from identity theft, should your info be made public.

    If you missed it in the news, the Multnomah Sheriff's office has extended the "deadline" for receipt of the non-disclosure letter to the end of January. There was a "clerical error" that delayed sending out the forms until the last weekend before the old deadline. They were flooded with ornery walk-ins so badly that the local news programs featured the issue, with good coverage for us! So the deadline is extended---if you gave up, it is not too late!.....................elsullo :thumbup:
