    I'm sure this is the wrong spot for this question, and might be a stupid question at best. But I am headed down to The Bite of Portland tonight, I plan on carrying (legally of course) Does any on think this might be a problem?

    It looks like you are a persona non grata even if you are legally carrying. They also have the kicker clause that they can also prohibit anything they like. Why not patronize and spend your money someplace you are more welcome, rather than spend an evening with a bunch of scared sheeple and the gangbangers that will attack them and then they will whine even more.

    You have to pay to get in and then pay for any food again anyway. Just visit one of the many fine restaurants around town.

    Always carry, especially downtown.
    Know your limit if drinking and know what might happen if you do choose to draw but have been drinking prior.

    It's like the Rose Festival, tuck that iron in your IWB holster and go have yourself a good time. They may look in any bags you're carrying, but the wussies aren't going to pat you down...

    If they're still doing the can donation shenanigans, for heavens sake don't confuse a spam can of surplus with regular spam. You'd be a hero but be on the news and nobody really wants that. Bone appetite!

    You mean this is on a public street and not in a private restaurant and you are going to ALLOW them to pat you down???? and disarm you?

    Surely you jest? Hi ho, Hi ho, it's off to court we go. TOTALLY ILLEGAL for them to do either.

    Quite contrary mon frery! Nobody except an LEO in the official performance of his/her job is EVER going to place their dick-skinners upon my person w/o losing them at the shoulder.

    My point was, the OP should just strap on their CCW, keep it concealed and go enjoy the venue w/o worry. Even if they pass through an entry point where they may want to glance inside any carry-bags, because short of metal detectors, they aren't going to frisk people.

    Also, having a CCW, and this being in a pubic place, I believe under Oregon law you have the right to carry, and that their exclusion would be exempted by your ccl?

    I agree, as long as it's still in a 'public place' and you have an Oregon CHL, you are legally allowed to concealed carry. Even in Multonomah County, with their revised gun laws (April 2013) provides exemptions for CHL holders in public places (because they can't supersede state carry laws). Stay away from the alcohol though - if you did have to pull your gun in self-defense, the last thing you'd need is to have to explain why you're carrying a gun and drinking. As with private property, where the owner can post signs preventing you from carrying, the worst they can do is kick you out. But if you're concealed, no one should know you have it anyway.

    If it is a government function, which it might not be, you can legally carry. If it isn't on private property, you can legally carry. I say to hell with them, carry it. I would. To hell with them and their unconstitutional rules.

    Give it a couple more years with these liberal swine at the helm and The Bite will be a government function too.
