    Interesting decision. So homeless folks can carry anywhere without a license?

    Well I don't think so. The other case cited in the article was about a transient living out of his truck for several years. His truck was ruled his residence. Residence seems to be the key

    Nope. In/around the home, as the law stipulates.

    I believe that has some huge implications:

    Post Office parking lot, VA grounds, Federal Parks (I know these are Federal, but that seems ripe for this type of approach) anywhere you can go with a vehicle legally, if you live in your vehicle (think motorhome for retired people also) seems to open a bunch of windows

    Good decision IMO.

    And if your "home" is a shopping cart, so long as you are around it you're good, right?

    Hard to claim one is "living" in a shopping cart, unless one can show curling up at night inside one is workable. Any more than claiming a sidewalk is one's "home" insofar as the statutes covering carry are concerned.

    Believe it or not, if he was in CA, this would have been a non-issue as concealed carry is legal in one's campsite; so is open carry for that matter. For that reason, I find it funny that this was an issue in Oregon which is generally thought of as one of the more gun friendly states in the union compared to CA, NY, MA, CT etc.. All in all, I think this was the right decision.
