What will disqualify me from obtaining a concealed handgun license?

Oregon law prohibits the issuance of a concealed handgun license to anyone who:

  • Has been convicted of a felony,
  • Has been convicted of a misdemeanor within the last four years, or
  • Is the respondent of a current restraining order or stalking order.

Federal law prohibits anyone who has ever been convicted of a domestic violence related crime, misdemeanor or felony, from possessing a firearm.

If disqualifiers apply to you, but you still feel you are eligible for a license, return appropriate documentation, dates, and explanation of circumstances, including court orders surrounding your circumstances for further consideration along with your application.
