Even though Oregon is an "open carry" state, giving most adults the right to openly carry a firearm without permit, a state permit is required to carry a concealed weapon on your person or in your vehicle. It is also illegal to discharge a gun on school grounds or point a gun at another person, except for reasons of self-defense.
Possession of any such device is punishable by up to $250,000 and up to 10 years in prison. Accidentally wounding someone in a hunting accident is also a gun crime and may result in up to six months in jail.
Do not let financial concerns deprive you of the legal representation you need. At the Law Office of Graham C. Fisher, we offer hourly or flat-rate pricing. In most circumstances, payment plans are also available.
