Corrections officers will now be able to carry guns but CHL required?
by Rep. Bill Post
This is one of those "doh" bills. We had to create a law for common sense? So imagine a prison guard over in Eastern Oregon driving home all by his or her self and no way of protecting themselves from convicts who might hold a grudge. Now, you and I as ordinary citizens can carry a firearm in our vehicle, even without a CHL. They cannot. This bill was kinda sorta good, but not great. Now corrections officers will have to get concealed carry licenses. Are they less "competent" than say a deputy sheriff or off duty city cop? Common sense in the State Legislature is hard to find, that’s why I think I should be there. I won’t always be right but I will be principled and have some doggone common sense!
