State v. Christian

Portland City Code 14A.060.010(A), which prohibits carrying a firearm in a public place "recklessly having failed to remove all the ammunition," is facially constitutional under the Oregon Constitution Article I § 27 and the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution because it does not punish protected activity in a significant number of circumstances.
