    Default OK Governor signs Constitutional Carry & other 2A news

    2/28/2019

    Permitless carry law to go into effect on Nov. 1 in Oklahoma

    OKLAHOMA CITY —
    Gov. Kevin Stitt on Wednesday signed a bill that would allow some Oklahomans to carry a firearm without a permit into law.

    House Bill 2597 was the first bill Stitt has signed into law since he was elected Oklahoma's 28th governor. He signed the bill a couple hours after the state Senate passed it.

    House Bill 2597, also known as the "constitutional carry" bill and was authored by Senate Major Leader Kim David and Rep. Jon Echols, passed Wednesday with a 40-6 vote.

    The bill would permit Oklahomans age 21 and older to carry a firearm without a permit. Veterans, active duty and reserve military members age 18 and over would be allowed to carry without a permit under the bill. The bill also prohibits felons, those with domestic violence convictions or anyone who have been adjudicated as having a mental illness from carrying a firearm.

    Current protections that allow private property owners to prohibit firearms from being carried are maintained under the bill. The measure also maintains the ability of higher education institutions to set their own policies regarding the carrying of firearms on campuses.

    The law will go into effect Nov. 1.


    Also fed gov. news, the House passed HR-8, with Republican help.
    Listed below are the pukes that voted yes.

    Very disappointed in our Texas Guv, I thought if we got Strauss out of the way, we would be home free.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    Hey KC - You'll be ok, I think....at least you don't have a new Governor who has stated his desire to take away all guns from his state's citizens......

    Great news Trapper ! Looks like West Virginia may allow campus carry, with certain restrictions.
