Oregon: UPDATE on Efforts to Ban Open Carry in Ashland

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- In February, your NRA alerted you that the Ashland City Council was making another attempt to limit open carry in the city limits.

At the time, the City Council was aiming to restrict the possession of a loaded firearm in public in Ashland, despite the fact that it is legal to openly carry an unconcealed firearm in public in the state of Oregon.

On June 17 2014, the City Council finally considered this proposal and defeated it by a 5 to 1 vote, with Councilor Carol Voisin being the only vote in favor of the ban.  After months of discussion and community response regarding this issue, the City Council decided it was an unenforceable law and has discontinued any further discussion of the matter.  This egregious proposal will no longer be open to debate unless proposed as a completely new agenda item, restarting the entire local ordinance process.

Your NRA thanks NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted the City Council and made their opposition known.  Your grassroots efforts and activism made the difference!
