According to Portland Police, it's the first time the enhanced gun laws in the City of Portland have been invoked. In this case, police say 34 year old Joseph Charlton left a gun unlocked and available for a child to get his hands on. It's only a misdemeanor, but eventually, Charlton could be charged with a felon in possession of a gun charge. He's previously been arrested for DUII and reckless driving according to court records.
