In Oregon, adults can purchase and openly carry a rifle, shotgun, or handgun without a permit; but you must usually obtain a license to carry a concealed gun in your car or on (or near) your body. For more information, see Open and Concealed Gun Carry Laws in Oregon.
To obtain a concealed handgun license, you must apply at the local sheriff’s office in the county where you live. To qualify, you must:
(Oregon Rev. Stat. Ann. § 166.291.)
No. Oregon does not recognize concealed carry permits or licenses issued by other states. You will need an Oregon Concealed Handgun License to carry a concealed handgun in Oregon. (Oregon Rev. Stat. Ann. § 166.291 –166.297.)
If you fail to get a concealed carry permit, you could be sent to jail for up to six months, be fined up to $2,500, or both. (Oregon Rev. Stat. Ann. § 161.615 & -635.) Penalties for more serious gun violations are more severe.
If you have any questions about whether you are allowed to carry a gun in Oregon, or if you are facing charges for a gun permit violation, consult a qualified criminal defense lawyer.
