For a lot of states like Oregon I think it is more about money than anything. I have both Utah and Oregon and although Utah's requires more specific training, Oregon doesn't recognize the Utah permit. In Oregon all you have to do is show a certificate that you took any gun safety class fill out the forms, finger prints, etc. and pay your money. This whole thing is frustrating knowing that policies driven by power, control, and greed could get me arrested if I get caught exercising my FEDERAL constitutional right to bear arms on the wrong side of a state line. God forbid, should that ever happen, I would then lose my right to bear arms all together as I would then be viewed as a felon by the laws in most states. How did we get so far from what our forefathers established in the Constitution? It is a sad and frustrating reality.
