....No, not the green types with the big heads, although I have a big head and a green card. I'm reading up on a ton of different info around handguns and as I live close to Oregon (Clark county), I was reading up on their requirements for a CHL. The WA CCW permit is pretty simple, but Oregon has the requirement that one has to be either a US citizen or a permanent legal resident alien (greencard holder) with the USCIS-documented intent to naturalize (Form N-300). For most greencard holders that's not the biggest issue. I see my future in the US, I'm very happy here, but many countries will allow dual citizenship. My country only allows it for a few special circumstances, and I don't fit there. "So?" you might say, "Why not just fill out the damn forms and be done with it?". There are multiple reasons. 1) In case at some point I decide to not naturalize, I'm in a way lying to the government. This is something I am not comfortable with. 2) The procedure actually provides limited legal value (which somewhat contradicts point 1, because I still see it as lying). It can be required for some business by some states, the OR CHL being one of them, it's not needed for naturalization. 3) From my understanding of a fairly big doc I read online from some legal resource (which I haven't been able to find again), the guidelines internally in USCIS are unclear on the "approval" process. Interestingly enough, it can also not be found in the processing time overviews on the USCIS site. 4) It costs $250 to submit! It is however part of state law, see ORS 166.291 1(a)(B), so there's no way around it. Unless, and here's the point to this rambling, there's legislation being worked on in the Oregon legal and political machineries that relieve the requirement for intent. As I don't know, is anybody aware of anything like this going on? Sadly I can't vote unless I become a citizen, so I'm not one of the people getting much attention from politicians. Again, I want to emphasize that it is NOT my intention to do anything illegal, I want to see what is going on in upcoming legislation, if anything. Thanks for taking the time to read.
