So my girlfriend decided to get a CHL. Hooray!
The form here requires you to list two character references. It's unclear whether I can be one - since I'm the boyfriend - waiting to hear back from them on that.
However, basically all of our friends are anti-gun. I'm not looking forward to asking around to see who'll vouch for her, because I just know that every time she goes out they'll grill her about whether she's packing.
Has anyone dealt with this before? It seems silly but it's turned into a significant obstacle.
Portland Oregon is a pretty liberal city, so there is significant shock to people if they hear you even own a gun, much less have one in your pocket/groin/armpit/however you carry.
