RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I grew up in a place (Oregon) and era when I could take guns to school in my truck and park in the school parking lot. We could even bring them into the school for a reason such as building a rifle stock in shop class.
I can walk around down town in my home town with a revolver on my belt or a rifle on my shoulder. As such I note weapons but do not feel confronted when someone is carrying one any more than I would by a drill, chain saw or other tool.
When hunting, it is not unusual when up in the mountains to pick up an armed stranger and give them a ride back to camp. I think the perception is foreign to many people unaquainted with firearms but very familiar to the majority of people familiar with firearms.
