We cycled down town and looked in a few of the cutsie shops. I wondered into a fishing shop, that kind of sold cute things including guns.
This is an excerpt from my trip dairy. It is a conversation I had with the shop assistant in the shop.
Female Shop Assistant: Do you carry a gun with you on your bike?
Me: No we carry beer spray
Female Shop Assistant: I guess it would be difficult in states where you cannot carry a concealed weapon.
Female Shop Assistant: When I am in Ontario, Oregon there is nothing more embarrassing than walking into a bank and realising I have my gun in my purse. I quickly run outside and put it in my glovebox.
Me: Is it legal in Oregon to carry a gun in your glovebox.
Female Shop Assistant: I don't know, I just don't want to set of any alarms in the bank and have to explain myself.
As soon as I could I rushed out on to the street, found Sharon and told her of the conversation, we were both once again in hysterics and dumbfounded by American gun culture.
