As we found out while traveling this could be the difference between life and death. My husband a concealed carry person just had a feeling he needed to pack his gun on a trip thru Oregon . We were at a rest stop in eastern part of Oregon when a group of men pulled in and started trying to harasses our daughter. She locked herself in the car and prayed her dad would hurry. when he joined us he told these guys where to go. Weleft and they followed and ran us off the road. When this happened my husband got out of the car fully prepared to defend his family. When these group saw the gun they realized they had chosen the wrong car to try this. Who knows what would have happened if he had not been prepared. It was a lesson not lost on our daughter. Who at 21 got her own concealed carry permit. This is just one example of the reason we need this legislation.
