From douglas county sheriff:
To qualify for a concealed handgun license, all applicants must:
• Be at least 21 years of age
• Be a US citizen or meet Immigration and Naturalization requirements
• Be a resident of Douglas County Oregon
• Never have been convicted of a felony
Not have been convicted of a misdemeanor in the last four years
• Have no outstanding warrants, or free on any form of pretrial release
• Have never been committed to the Mental Health and Developmental Disability Services Division, or have been found to be mentally ill and subject to an order prohibiting purchasing or possessing firearms because of mental illness.
• Provide written documentation from a firearms safety course utilizing instructors certified by the NRA or a law enforcement agency or participation in the military service with handgun training indicated.
• Pass a background check
• Not be subject to a citation or an order for stalking or an order issued under the Family Abuse Prevention Act.
• Never been convicted of any Domestic Assault, Battery, or any other Domestic Misdemeanor that would prohibit you from possessing a firearm under Federal Law.
I believe it also says somewhere that it will be revoked if you are ever even charged with a misdemeanor.
My question is: is this even in the law, or are we allowing the sheriff to be discreshionery? I've never been in any trouble my self, I'm just kind of a civil rights activist you might say and it makes me wunder if there is any basis for this or just us accepting it? A misdemeanor certainly doesn't prevent you from buying or owning a gun, so why would it prohibit you from getting a CHL?
