On this edition of Civil Rights Roundup, Cam Edwards speaks with NRA Deputy Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi about State of Oregon v. Morgan Joel Perry. In this case, Morgan Joel Perry, 28, was hired by an aging convenience store owner to help around the business, which was located in a high crime neighborhood. After an altercation with a homeless man, the police were called to the location and they found that Perry, with the permission of the storeowner who also had a firearm at the store for protection, was carrying a handgun in a holster without a concealed carry permit. Perry was arrested for unlawful possession, but Tahmassebi explains that the statute requiring carry licenses has an exception that should allow citizens like Perry to carry firearms at their homes or places of business without a permit.
