No one in Oregon has a concealed weapons permit. A permit implies permission has to be granted. There is the OCHL, the Oregon Concealed Handgun License which requires that you know enough not to shoot yourself in the foot or accidentally shoot someone else, and pass a background check, but it is not a permit. It is rather a piece of paper (or actualloy laminated plastic) that says you qualify to exercise a right; it's similar in function to an ID to vote--your State issued ID isn't your voting "permit."
