Ruling on Portland OR limit on open carry
Eugene Volokh discusses it at the Volokh Conspiracy.
The ordinance makes it illegal (with some exceptions) to knowingly possess a firearm in public, "recklessly having failed to remove all the ammunition from the firearm..." The question is, what does "recklessly" mean here? In the Oregon Court of Appeals, the majority hold that it means reckless of any public risk created, above and beyond those inherent in self-defense, etc.. Which comes close to saying that it only bans loaded carry if the carrier was bent upon crime, or practicing quick draw while drunk. The dissent concludes that "recklessly" modifies "having failed to remove," so that it means simply that the carrier can be convicted if he fails to unload either by intention or by recklessness.
