  1. Misdemeanor assault 4 and concealed carry in Oregon

    Hello, sorry for posting in the wrong place if I am. I've tried to read the laws to find an answer, but after many a crossed eye or nap were the only outcome I'm trying the internet.

    In 2008 I was charged and convicted of assault 4 after getting into a bar fight on the fourth of July in Oregon. I pleaded guilty, did my community service and an alcohol diversion course, and have been in no trouble since, not even a traffic violation. 2008 may not seem like a long time ago to most people, but since then I have seen myself graduate from college, get married, start a family, buy a house, a car, etc. I did something stupid in the heat of the moment as a young kid and it follows me at my job (I can't go to Canada to work for my company), but does it follow me when it comes to protecting myself as well? Am I allowed to get a concealed permit in my home state of Oregon?

    Oregon Statute, It seems very clear that a misdemeanor is only disqualifying for four years:

    166.291 Issuance of concealed handgun license; application; fees; liability. (1) The sheriff of a county, upon a person’s application for an Oregon concealed handgun license, upon receipt of the appropriate fees and after compliance with the procedures set out in this section, shall issue the person a concealed handgun license if the person:

    (a)(A) Is a citizen of the United States; or

    (B) Is a legal resident alien who can document continuous residency in the county for at least six months and has declared in writing to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services the intent to acquire citizenship status and can present proof of the written declaration to the sheriff at the time of application for the license;

    (b) Is at least 21 years of age;

    (c) Is a resident of the county;

    (d) Has no outstanding warrants for arrest;

  6. Thank you. I had seen that and I was hopeful but had also been told by a less than reputable source that it was different for violent crimes. I hope the 4 years is a catch all and that's true!

    You did something almost all of us have done at some time in our lives. You shouldn't still be penalized for a teenage fight. Good luck to you. Hope you get the permit.

    Congratulations for becoming a productive member of our society and for aiding society rather than sucking off of it like so many others. If it were up to me, once you were finished with your punishment, your rights as a citizen should be restored. If someone was still a danger to society, then they should never have been released back into society. Good luck in getting it squared away.

    Also, welcome to the forums. Hopefully, they can be of help to you.
