I really want to bring my (unloaded) rifle to the rally to the Oregon state capital on january 19th. I would be dressed in my church best and with my family. However, I do not want to break the law and get my rifle taken, and I don't want to upset other rally members that might disagree with my decision to physically display my belief in the second. What are your thoughts? As a gun owner I would love to see a bunch of people at a rally with sgl-21's, ar15s, and the rest, but that is me.

You are the only one. It's just like the guys downtown with the ARs...It frightens people. We need people to see us as rational calm normal people. The news keeps saying assault rifles, which is wrong but spreads fear. We need our black rifles to be the last thing these idiots think about. gotta take them out of the forefront if we can.

thank you for the kind PM's glad I'm not the only one! BTW speeddemon94, so you think people that open carry at rallies are irrational, not calm? The only time antigunners see black rifles is in a bad light. Why not in the hands of happy healthy people. try not to speak on behalf on everyone thank you.

That is not what I said. But by attempting to bait me into an argument with you, shows exactly why it's a bad idea for everyone to load up and pack their black rifles to the capitol. If the anti's can get one individual to respond in a slightly aggressive manner, it will negate everything that is being attempted. To me, and many others, it is just not worth the risk. We don't need to give these people any more ammo.

You must've never served in a war...this is basic tactics to deal with an uneasy populace, you hide your biggest assets from sight, in order to help them forget that you are there to win.

Just showing up with an empty black rifle bag could get some questions from the media. Then unzip the bag and show them that they got all worked up over nothing.
You may be onto something. I could just see someone with an empty AR soft case slung over the shoulder walking down the road in Portland, 911 is called, the media listening to the scanners rush over and all he has in his case is the food he was taking to the homeless shelter. "I'm sorry officer, I'm not allowed to use a plastic bag and this is the only thing that would hold all of the food!"

This is about the dumbest thing you could do. Then it starts looking like a militia and a bunch of yeahoos.

Being there unarmed or at least concealed carrying so it seems normal people like guns too,would be best.
But that's just my opinion

There is a new law that took effect on the first of this year in Oregon that some may not be aware of. Oregon Governor Kitzhaber signed into Law Executive Order NO.12-13 Tobacco Free Properities. Please review this or you may unknowing be breaking the Law on state grounds. State agency Employees are held to a higher extent of the Law.
I think it is best to have no open carry at this event, as you will represent all Gun Owners in the publics eye. The Media will spin anything they can to make you look evil.

According to this you are not allowed to even CC on the capitol grounds.
In the interest of keeping your permit, you should probably leave the pea shooters at home too.

Really? Someone that wants to limit a gun owner in any way frightens me. Those people that use the excuse that they're frightened at the sight of a gun when theres no harm bein done, need to be frightened.

IMHO anything that can be made out by the media as "in your face" will be.

Media is still replaying the 2 guys in Portland walking around with "Weapons of War" on their backs (that have the same mechanism as a varmit rifle)

Next up will be the 911 calls with terror stricken people running for their lives...

We have enough heat on honest law abiding Americans right now then to have them single out one person that did or said anything that could (will) be taken out of context and played endlessly by the talking heads.

Example: the only photo aol shows with the NRA's speech is a Huge red flag "NRA kills Children" or something to that effect, really aol, that's all you got out of those ideas?

There may anti 2nd Ammedment protesters screaming and yelling and calling us everything in the book.

Let's let them make fools of themselves while we show what we are, calm, normal, hard working people with families that just happen to enjoy a sport they don't

You have given the deffinition part of the law but I don't see where it says in what you posted anything is prohibited or under what conditions it would be prohibited. Only what is a public building or weapon etc.

Or did I miss something.

Granted laws can change but I have been in the parts of the capital building while carrying both a sheath knife and a concealled hand gun as were others at the time. We had all been in a hearings room fighting to keep our rights to own class III type weapons. At the time we were approched by OSP and asked about our "weapons" and after producing CHL's and myself explaining there was no intent to conceal the knife (I had stepped into the hall which was much colder then the hearing room packed to capacity) and put my jacket back on. And I pointed out if the knife had been concealed they would not have seen it sticking out lower then my jacket. The nice OSP officers walked off.

It's the adjacent property highlighted that I would worry about. Even with a concealed carry permit, it by definition means not on any of the grounds around the capital.
