Details on Oregon Gun Laws
The application for a concealed carry permit/license must be processed within 45 days of the application being received.
Oregon gun laws make no mention of informing law enforcement you have a weapon. The laws do state that you must have with you at all times you are carrying a firearm your permit and produce this when requested.
“No Weapons” signs are not mentioned in Oregon gun laws. There are no legal penalties for entering a private property or business that has posted these signs. They have no force of law unless they are posted in areas that are mentioned by the law as being off limits.
GunsToCarry recommends that you do not enter a property displaying a “No Weapons” sign whether the law is for or against signage. If asked to leave a property and you refuse to do so then you are breaking the law and put yourself at risk of being charged.
There are no state laws that ban the carrying of loaded firearms in a vehicle provided the firearm is not concealed or not readily accessible. But local governments can set their own laws on vehicle carry. So you would need to check the local regulations.
If you have a permit/licence then none of the above applies to you.
You are legally entitled to open carry. However, local governments can set their own laws for persons who do not have a permit/license and carry loaded firearms. So you must check up on the local laws before you open carry.
“Yes” or “No” states if you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Some restaurants may be posted with “NO GUN” signs. Check with the staff if this means just the bar area. If we have indicated a “Yes” then it should be legal to have a meal without drinking alcohol.
You are permitted to carry in state parks, state forests, WMA’s and roadside rest areas.
