OKLAHOMA CITY - Governor Mary Fallin has signed into law Senate Bill 1733, a measure that allows Oklahoma citizens to openly carry firearms. Governor Mary Fallin signed the legislation on Tuesday, May 15. The bill permits those who are licensed, or already have been licensed, to carry a firearm under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act to openly carry a weapon or conceal it. It also allows property owners to openly carry a firearm on their property without a concealed carry permit for the purpose of self defense.Additional thanks should go to Governor Mary Fallin for signing the bill. She has lived up to her A+ NRA rating and my expectations of her.
And no thanks at all should go to the following individuals who voted against the open carry bill:
