Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)-  Yesterday, Governor John Kitzhaber signed House Bill 4045 into law. This important Concealed Handgun License (CHL) confidentiality law went into effect immediately.

Sponsored by state Representative Kim Thatcher (R-25), HB 4045 was a necessary legislative fix because, under previous law, the private personal information of every person holding a CHL in Oregon was at risk of being divulged to the public.
