    Traveling to Oregon this weekend

    I live in Washington state and will be traveling down I-5 to Oregon this weekend. Should I pull over before I cross over into Oregon and put my gun in a case and put it in the trunk? Obviously I don't have a permit to carry in Oregon.
    Be ready. You can't make an appointment for an emergency.

    Don't know about Oregon, but when I lived in California a police officer friend of mine told me that his department defined a loaded gun as having a firearm and ammunition accessible from the passenger/driver area. Note I did not say ammunition that would function in that firearm, just ammunition. So if you had a 30.06 rifle in a soft case on the back seat and one round of .22 ammo rolling around the floorboard they could arrest you for a loaded weapon in your vehicle.

    His advice was when traveling with firearms, put the guns in a locked hard case, lock the hard case in the trunk, put the ammunition in another locked case and put that out of sight (like the glove compartment), and then clip your registration, insurance, etc. to your visor so you don't have to open the glove compartment to get it.

    My advice, don't do anything that will get the police attention when in an area that is so anti-gun that you have to jump through all these hoops.

    We where thinking of going back to San Francisco this year, but we’re not going to until the national CCL bill is passed. And the same goes for New York and Boston.

    Love those places but I’m not going unarmed.


    Good advise on locking your guns in the trunk.

    Yep, lock up your gun, like the others said.

    A county sheriff in Oregon may issue a non-resident permit to a resident of a contiguous state, but you have to show a viable need.

    You might look into that.

    As an Oregonian, I'd certainly recommend it, especially if you're coming through Portland. The rural parts of the state are basically gun friendly (like rural areas tend to be) and the urban parts are so anti-gun nobody even considers the possibility that you might have a gun. Which means basically nowhere is marked as no carry.

    Yes, put your gun away.

    Since you're a WA resident, see about applying for an Oregon non-resident permit while you're down there.

    Yep, your going to have to unload it and secure it. Look into a non-resident permit while your down here.

    While your at it, you might consider putting a long gun in your trunk too. If for some reason something happens and you HAVE to retrieve your weapon from your car and fight to live, then you might as well have all options available to you.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Oregon is not the only shall-issue state that honors no other permits. Hard to see the logic...
