    Here is what I was sent from the NRA news letter...

    ==================================================================
    OREGON: Right-to-Carry Reform Bill to be Heard on Tuesday! On Tuesday, February 24, the Oregon House Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on House Bill 2463, NRA-backed Right-to-Carry Reciprocity legislation sponsored by State Representative Arnie Roblan (D-9) and State Representative Wayne Krieger (R-1). The committee will meet at 1:00 p.m. in Room 357 of the State Capitol in Salem. This important legislation will not only grant persons holding out-of-state permits the right to carry a concealed handgun in Oregon - it will also increase the number of states in which Oregon Concealed Handgun Licenses (CHL) are legally recognized. Please contact the House Judiciary Committee and urge them to support HB 2463. Let them know that 37 different states offer some form of reciprocity or recognition for out-of-state carry licenses and Oregon should join them! Contact information can be found here.
    ==================================================================


    I hope this goes through :D

    So if this passes, could an OR resident carry in OR using a WA CHL? I was thinking about getting both, but the WA is less of a pain to get.

    I hope this passes! Of course I want reciprocity with other states but I want other CCW folks to be able to legally carry here either way. :)

    The most important question that has not been asked yet is;
    What can we do to help?

    I really hope this passes. It would open up reciprocity in a lot of states.

    Write a letter to your local State representative and state senator urging them to vote for this.

    SHERIFFS ON BOARD WITH CHL RECIPROCITY

    Today in the House Judiciary Committee, three bills of interest to gun owners were heard, But without question, the one that most gun owners will want to know about was HB 2463.

    This bill recognizes the concealed handgun licenses of all other states.

    At the request of OFF, an amendment was drafted that extended that recognition to Alaska and Vermont, which allow their residents to carry concealed without a license.

    As you know, this type of legislation has been introduced many times in the past and has always generated resistance from the Oregon Sheriffs.

    At today's hearing, the representative of the Oregon Sheriffs stated that they no longer opposed recognizing the CHL's of other states. This is a significant breakthrough in our efforts to have Oregon join the many states that allow non-residents to be safe while visiting .

    We strongly urge you to contact the House Judiciary Committee and express your support for HB 2463. Please remind them that this bill not only helps non-residents, but will help Oregonians whose licenses would be recognized in many states if Oregon recognizes theirs. A sample message and contact information follow at the bottom of this page.

    Oregon currently recognizes NO other state permits. This bill would change that and open up numerous other states to concealed carry by Oregon residents.

    Five pro-gun bills requested by OFF have been introduced as well this week. You can see them on here. They are Senate Bills 567,568,569,573 and 603. The sponsor for all these bills was Senator Brian Boquist. We will keep you informed on these bills' progress.

    One more note. We have received countless e-mails and phone calls about HR 45,

    While this bill (in the US Congress) is troubling and extreme, there is no indication right now that it is going anywhere. If that changes, we will let you know immediately.


    House Judiciary Committee.
    __________________________________________________________________

    Dear Representative,

    HB 2463 is a much needed change in Oregon law that would not only allow visitors to Oregon to protect themselves lawfully, but allow Oregon residents to have the same freedoms in many other states. I urge your support.

    Yours,

    Wow! I'm actually shocked that this was signed into law. Especially in the People's Republic of Oregon. :jawdrop:
