Oklahoma advances open carry, multiple gun bills ^ | 27 April, 2012 | MICHAEL McNUTT

Oklahomans with concealed handgun permits would be allowed to carry their weapons in the open if a bill that easily passed the House of Representatives becomes law.

But members defeated an amendment Thursday that would have allowed for the open carry of handguns anywhere without a permit.

Senate Bill 1733 would allow anyone with a license to carry a firearm under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act to carry the weapon either openly or concealed. It passed 85-3 and is headed for a conference committee.

It also would allow a property owner to openly carry a handgun on his or her land. No concealed-carry permit would be required.

That's right my friends, currently under Oklahoma laws; “ if the cops see you openly carry a handgun on your own property, you go to jail”- Mike Ritze(R) Oklahoma 80 Representative (thanks Dr Mike for your support of open carry)

I cannot understand why we still have this law in Oklahoma. hopefully Guv. Mary will sign the law, and we get some of our freedom back.
