    Default Permitless gun carry bill first signed by Oklahoma governor

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma residents will be able to openly carry firearms without a background check or training under a bill given final legislative approval Wednesday that quickly became the first signed into law by the new Republican governor.

    Dubbed “constitutional carry” by its supporters, the bill passed the Senate on a 40-6 vote with every Republican and one Democrat voting in favor. It already sailed through the GOP-controlled House .

    The bill, which becomes effective Nov. 1, would allow most residents 21 and older to carry concealed or unconcealed firearms without a license. Exceptions would include anyone in the country illegally or those convicted of certain crimes. Firearms would still be prohibited in certain locations, including public buildings, schools, professional sporting events, casinos and bars.

    Currently, those wishing to carry a firearm in public must apply for a license that includes a state background check and completion of a training course.

    “I just don’t like asking government for permission to exercise a constitutional right. It’s that simple,” said Don Spencer, a citizen activist who has pushed for looser gun laws at the Capitol for nearly a decade.

    Gov. Kevin Stitt endorsed the plan on the campaign trail and held a signing ceremony Wednesday afternoon, flanked by dozens of Republican lawmakers. He pushed for a provision that allows businesses the right to ban firearms on their property.

    “As I traveled all over the state to all 77 counties, I heard from Oklahomans all over that they wanted us to protect their right to bear arms,” Stitt said. “I’m excited to sign this.”

    The bill was vetoed last year by GOP Gov. Mary Fallin , who cited opposition from the business community and law enforcement.

    Way to go Governor Stitt, wish there were a lot more politicians in the US that thought the same as you.

    Just happened across this:

    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Just another state that Puts Pennsylvania Gun Owners To SHAME for not passing Consitutional Carry...

    And folks on this very board helped to push out the previous Governor who would have signed a Constitutional Carry bill...

    <<< I've been shaking my head every day since in disbelief of such people who claim to support the 2A >>>
