    ...in Springfield or Eugene, Oregon. This is from a subguns.com thread.

    Ridiculous. The only possible charge that I can see coming from something like that would stem from not leaving the property when told to do so.

    This may be the key. I know that this happened in OR, but here this can get you a criminal tresspass citation.

    Did you put this on opencarry.org.

    And, yeah, if criminal trespass is the charge, and he refused to leave, then he broke the law. THIS ASSUMES the person who told him to leave was authorized to do so and that he had a reasonable opportunity to comply.

    OK, after reading the story, I volunteer my opinion that "girl at the counter," without more, does not appear to be somebody who can order you to leave.

    Added my input to the subguns site, questioning her authority to remove him.

    Nobody has addressed Oregon law on this subject.

    You're probably right.

    I don't know if I am right, as I have not researched Oregon trespass law. To be safe, I would have asked for a manager, but left immediately if I kept getting flak.

    The issue here is that the people calling him an a**clown have not researched it, either. Even Tom Bowers, the owner of that site, jumped on the bandwagon. There is not a single citation to relevant law on that entire thread.

    See why I like GPDO so much?

    That just would not happen here.

    Still not worthy of a SWAT callout.

    But, they have to defend their budget and big-boy toys somehow. What better way to do that than say ever job is a job for SWAT. :roll:

    It has been all day, and nobody on that site has responded to any of my 5 posts.

    That's because you ask questions that require people to think, and people don't like to do that.

    Very true. Unfortunately, in addition to those too lazy to do much thinking, there's a fairly large number incapable of doing so. Which could explain the dearth of responses. Don't be surprised, if you finally do receive one, it'll be incorrect or not even germane to the question...

    Ya gotta remember, not everyone is as intelligent, literate, well read, capable and willing to share their knowledge as those who read and post to this site.

    That started out a little tongue-in-cheek, but it is a factual statement. The people here are knowledgeable and willing to freely share that knowledge with others. A very pleasant, well informed and generous group indeed, and I'm quite proud to be a member.
