FLASH! ORYGUN HOUSE VOTES TO ALLOW OUT-OF-STATE CPLS!

Now it goes to the senate...

House says concealed carry licenses from other states OK in Oregon
Published: Monday, March 21, 2011, 5:19 PM
The Oregon House voted Monday to throw out the welcome mat for out-of-state visitors packing heat and concealed weapons permits.

On a vote of 40 to 17, the chamber approved a bill that would allow people who have permits from other states to carry concealed guns while visiting Oregon.

Two former law enforcement agents Democratic Rep. Jeff Barker, D-Aloha, and Republican Rep. Wayne Krieger, R-Gold Beach  carried the bill, which now goes to the Senate for approval.

Currently, Oregon doesn't recognize licenses issued by any other state, though a license from this state is honored in just over a dozen others.

This is the second piece of legislation concerning concealed handguns to pass through the House in a week. A bill blocking the release of information about who carries concealed weapons passed on Thursday by slightly larger margins.

While the law is aimed at license holders from other states, it could also potentially open the door to reciprocity with some 37 states in all, said Krieger. Oregon handgun owners, concealed carry, are receiving a definite benefit, he said.

Only one representative spoke against the legislation, Mary Nolan, a Democrat from Portland.
