Sadly pepper spray, mace, and tear gas will be listed as weapons in September when SB554 takes effect into Oregon law. Conceal carring those or any weapon into a school or any Gov't building will result in a class C felony. In Oregon anything that is used as a weapon toward you can be met with lethal force.I appreciate the comments of those who have replied to my comment about tear gas and fighting against such groups as ANTIFA. The more I think about it, the more I realize that any weapon used against you can be deadly, and so it would be appropriate to respond with a firearm.
When I made the comment about using tear gas against ANTIFA, I was thinking of a recent event where the mayor of Portland (?) was being harassed by an ANTIFA thug; his response was to soak the guy's face in tear gas; he successfully stopped the harassment by doing so.
So I think that sometimes tear gas would be the appropriate weapon to use; but sadly, we are coming to a time when the only thing you'll be able to do is shoot the attacker with your gun.
There are certain cities with ordinance laws. Portland for example: It is illegal to conceal carry with a loaded pistol. The mag must be separated, with an empty chamber. There are a few other cities that do the same but the elected sheriff's don't enforce it.
The dems, liberals, and progressives are pushing for more gun control every week. There's a Pastor trying to get Ballot Measure 17 which will require a permit for every single firearm purchase/transfer. And it's a Shall Issue by the sheriff permit. With a side of high capacity mag ban.
Ballot Measure 18 is just an ouright ban on all modern semi-auto firearms.
Would you like to know more?
