Oregon Legislature Considering Concealed Handgun Policy

The Oregon Legislature is considering whether the names of concealed handgun license holders should be public information. A bill in the House Judiciary Committee would exempt permit holders from public record laws. Penny Okomoto with Cease-Fire Oregon opposes the bill, saying Oregonians are safer knowing where the guns are. But sheriffs throughout the state say the opposite may be true; that more people will be put at risk if the personal information included in the permit applications is available to the public because people may try to steal the guns, or steal gun-holders' identities.
