Another State is One Step Closer to Constitutional Carry

With more and more people fighting for the right to carry, Oklahoma has taken the first steps towards Constitutional Carry.

Oklahoma’s proposed Constitutional Carry bill is one step closer to reaching the governor’s desk.The bill, which aims to pass Constitutional Carry into law, would allow residents 21 years of age who have not been convicted of a felony to open-carry without a permit. Oklahomans can still apply for a concealed carry permit if they are looking for reciprocity in other states.
The House spent two hours on HB 3098, authored by Representative Jeff Coody, before voting 73-15 in favor of the bill in March.“A gun can be a wonderful thing or it can be a horrible thing, if it’s used the wrong way. And it’s a tool, just like anything else and we have the freedom to get all the training we need and we should,” Representative Coody said.During a debate on the bill Wednesday in front of the Senate Rules Committee,Senator Kay Floyd said, “I don’t understand why we’re eliminating background checks. Criminal background checks. I mean…don’t we have to balance out the safety factor for all Oklahomans?”
