Georgia's "Safe Carry Protection Act" -- or as critics call it, the "Guns Everywhere Bill" -- sparked controversy nationwide.
"Gets me worried though, walking into a bar where people have been drinking and a couple of guys are packing a Colt .45," Fox News anchor Stuart Varney said on his program last week.
For Oregon gun rights advocates, the question is: What's new about that? "The changes they've made in Georgia law bring them very close to what we have in Oregon," Kevin Starrett of the gun rights group Oregon's Firearm Federation said Tuesday. "License-holders are free to carry their firearms in most places. So in Georgia, where now they allowed them to carry them in a few more places., it seems long overdue."

The Georgia bill isn’t anything really new. It brings the laws of that state into line with the laws of many others.
The last time I renewed my permit it took about an hour.
The first time took 2 days.
I did not realize Stuart Varney was such an ignoramus.
“...a couple of guys are packing a Colt .45”
And I didn’t know it took two guys to pack a .45, either. I learn sumthin’ new every day of FR.
The ONLY place you can not carry in Oregon is federal buildings (shocker there) and the courthouses. Aside from that it’s open. It is a shall issue state with no restrictions outside of the NFA restrictions. The colleges throw a hissy fit when someone carries but the Oregon constitution is very clear that no local ordinances can take precedence over the state law.
“I did not realize Stuart Varney was such an ignoramus.”
But then you did know that he’s a Brit so why is this a stretch for you?
When did I say I did not know he was a Brit?
I apologize. I misread your post. Please ignore my previous comment.
A few years ago the Portland airport decided to prohibit firearms. Didn’t work, the OR Gun Owners (maybe I have the name wrong) took it on and won.
It’s one of the few things I like about OR. I could not stand living in a state like California or Massachusetts.
Licensing and registration are still an infringement upon our second amendment rights. What do most states fail to understand about "shall not be infringed"?
