Welcome to CHL Central. If you’re planning on obtaining a concealed handgun license in Oregon, the following information should be useful.
Please note, O.F.F.’s position is that there is no legitimate basis for a “license” to exercise a God-given, Constitutionally protected right. But, since we’re saddled with this law for the time being, we felt this info might be helpful.
In the current environment, the sheriffs are more important than ever if we are to safeguard our freedoms.
While the large population centers like Portland clearly have enough votes to force anything they want on the rest of the state, the sheriffs, along with the county commissioners, have the ability, and the duty to stand up and say “no” to the big city bullies.
This is where the future of gun rights lies. As long as there are billionaires trying to buy our liberties from us, we will have to rely on the one place where common sense prevails, and it is certainly not in places that elect child molesters.
No matter what the legislature passes, or a ballot measure creates, counties and sheriffs don’t have to participate. If the State is going to pass a law that makes you a criminal for giving a gun to a family member or someone whose life is in jeopardy, the counties can simply refuse to go along. Then the State will have to use its tiny State Police department to carry out these attacks alone. Good luck.
It’s important to note that all of the information we have posted was accurate as of the time of posting. While we do everything we can to provide the most current and accurate information, we cannot guarantee that some information or forms have not changed.
We expect this page to be a central source for info as we battle to keep our rights. We will try to provide as much information as possible on the sheriffs of each county so you know who supports your rights and who does not.
If you have any information that should be here or any updates, please drop us a line.

Please note, if you are trying to access info on Multnomah County, make sure you click within the county borders, not on the text that’s says “Multnomah,” which is actually outside the county borders.
