    A pro-active sheriff

    Wow. Got this from my sheriff. Nice to know he is pro-carry.

    Concealed Handgun License Holder Update
    Where can you carry concealed?

    Oregon law provides very few limits on where a person with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) can carry a firearm, and federal laws contain a few more prohibitions. It is actually easier to answer a slightly different question, "Where can a CHL holder not carry a firearm?"

    Even if you have a Concealed Handgun License, you cannot carry a firearm on any of the following properties:

    * Federal facilities - federal courthouses, social security offices, in secured areas of airports, and on airplanes
    * National forests marked or posted by signs prohibiting all firearms
    * Indian reservations or Indian property - you may not carry a firearm concealed without the written permission of the tribal judge; this may also apply to certain casinos on Indian lands
    * Courts - in a courtroom, jury room, judge's chambers or adjacent areas that the presiding judge determines should be free of firearms to ensure the safety of the litigants, court personnel, witnesses and others
    * Private property where the owner prohibits firearms possession
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    Re: Bullet point #2 from your sheriff

    Are National Forests considered National Parks? Which if they are, the rules were recently changed to allow carry in National Parks - correct? Just not sure whether a "Forest" is considered likewise.

    Adios,

    No, they are two entirely different entities. National Forests are managed by the Dep't of Agriculture; National Parks are managed by the Dep't of the Interior.

    The new firearms rules were issued by the Secretary of the Interior and have nothing to do with National Forests.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Quote from Oregon Firearms Federation Web site:

    "Rest assured, no matter what signs are posted in any public school in Oregon, no matter what lies are told to you by bureaucrats gorging themselves at the public trough, if you are a valid CHL holder you are completely within your rights to carry your defensive firearm on the grounds of any Oregon Public School."

    This is consistent with my knowledge of Oregon law, being both a holder of an Oregon CCP and a school safety/security professional.

    Yep ^^ [Cap'n Crunch]

    U.S. Forest Service is not the same agency nor land management as the National Park Service.
    Same applies to the Bureau of Land Management and their grounds which are specific and they too oversee a large portion of lands and grounds across the nation.

    If you do not see an NPS logo/sign, which are highly visible at the entrance of all such properties, then do not go there with weapons of any sort on otherwise what are known to be Federal property/grounds.
