On Friday, Oregon became the second state to enact a concealed carry reciprocity law, a move that was hailed by gun rights advocates.
A similar law has already passed in Hawaii and Washington.
The law requires gun owners who own handguns in the state to obtain a permit from the Bureau of Land Management before bringing a firearm to any other state.
Gun owners who do not own a firearm will be allowed to bring their guns to any state without a permit, provided they can show that the person’s home is not the only place where they live.
The reciprocity legislation passed in Oregon also requires gun dealers to allow people to bring in their firearms for hunting and sporting purposes.
Oregon’s law also allows gun owners to carry their firearms in public, including the grocery store, and bars, restaurants, and shopping centers.
The reciprocity is just the latest attempt by gun control advocates to expand their base of support.
Earlier this month, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington and Minnesota passed bills to expand concealed carry rights for those with concealed carry permits.
The states also included exemptions for schools and universities.
