Why, thank you Oklahoma. I wish I had the power to reciprocate, but I don’t. But if I did, I would.
This movement has really swept the nation.
I’m not so sure about this. I am more comfortable with reciprocity agreements, as it puts in writing what the rules are, and cannot be whimsically changed without notification.
For example, Arizona is a gun freedom state, but they will still issue on request a gun license if you wish to leave the state and travel to another state that has a reciprocity agreement with AZ. Oklahoma as well, though there is no agreement with AZ.
However, Oklahoma could change this policy on a dime, with little or no notice to Arizona or Arizonans. A reciprocity agreement would take a lot longer to break.
As far as I remember AZ does not require a permit to carry concealed on the street, but if you want to carry in a car or in certain other places you do have to have a permit. Is that right?
Open carry in a vehicle is okay. And there were a lot of bills that didn’t make it through this session that would have “liberalized” AZ’s gun laws even further. The legislature is extremely friendly to new suggestions as well, if anyone can think of some more.
Indiana is reciprocal too, so you and your guns are welcome.
