How about www.packing.org? I seem to remember they have a lot of data on CCW laws and such.

You can get a book from ATF, "State laws and published ordinances"(ATF 5300.5) and the Rules & Regulations (ATF 5300.4) for free. I just got a newer editions 2 weeks ago. Call the ATF Material Distribution Center-703-455-7801. NOBODY should be without these books. Sometimes the local field offices may have, but easier to call distribution. ****NOTE- the state book is only "general",, not to great in detail.

The NRA information is a nice summary. The ATF info. is incomplete. I personally would look for a Website that has the Oregon Statutes, then search for the Firearms Section. Read everything. I did this with Florida's statutes and found alot of details that the NRA ommitted. I will post an address as soon as I can get it.

Oregon Revised Statutes: [url]http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/home.html[/url] Firearms Chapter (166 ORS): [url]http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/166.html[/url] Firearms Laws are 166.170 - 166.663. The rest is stuff like Creating Unrest, Intimidation, RICO, etc...related to Criminal Orginiztions using guns. Colorado Revised Statutes: [url]http://64.78.178.125/cgi-dos/stattocp.exe?T[/url] Firearms Article (18 CRS 12): [url]http://64.78.178.125/cgi-dos/stattocp.exe?P&ttl=18&art=12[/url]

It appears that Oregon has full Pre-emption.
166.170 State preemption. (1) Except as expressly authorized by state statute, the authority to regulate in any matter whatsoever the sale, acquisition, transfer, ownership, possession, storage, transportation or use of firearms or any element relating to firearms and components thereof, including ammunition, is vested solely in the Legislative Assembly. (2) Except as expressly authorized by state statute, no county, city or other municipal corporation or district may enact civil or criminal ordinances, including but not limited to zoning ordinances, to regulate, restrict or prohibit the sale, acquisition, transfer, ownership, possession, storage, transportation or use of firearms or any element relating to firearms and components thereof, including ammunition. Ordinances that are contrary to this subsection are void.

This means little as Florida has a similar statute. The only exception is allowing to have 3 - 5 Day Waiting Periods. Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach, as well as here in Broward. The Politicos have gone well beyond the limit. In some cases, requiring NICS checks at gun shows in violation of 18 FRS 790.33. This is only not challanged as the County has a 5 Day wait which means that unless you are going to the guys home in 5 Days, that the gun has to go through a Dealer and a NICS would be required. I would like to see somebody challange this by having the buyer come to their home in 5 Days to pick up the Gun w/o a NICS Check. Then they would surely win in court as the law is clearly in violation of 18 FRS 790.33. In Colorado there are a few municipalities that have Gun Laws, namely Denver. In Denver "Assault Weapons" are banned. But, I believe there is an exemption for non-residents travelling through Denver. Open Carry is also banned in Denver. A Libertarian Congressional Candidate was arrested in Denver for placing a Pistol in his beltt during a rally. Municipalities in COlorado that have laws: [url]http://fws.municode.com/CGI-BIN/om_isapi.dll?&softpage=CO_Group_List[/url]

I added the red to the word "Affirmative Defense" for Steve-In-VA. For those who weren't here 7 months ago. There was a debate over the AW Ban. I pissed off Steve-In-VA as I was underinformed/hadn't read up on the AW Ban. I made mention that some states had "Affirmative Defense" in their laws. I am about 7 months late, but here is a cite.
