    Very nice interview. Fight the good fight.

    Excellent article, but another great example of why reading comments on the internet is an exercise in patience. On one side, you want to articulate a reasonable and sensible argument that could potentially change a few of their minds... on the other, you just want to go in there and call them a few choice names because you know anything else will just lead to banging your head against the desk.

    Yep, our shiny new law limits carry (just as it was under concealed carry) to 16' overall length and 45 caliber. Openly carried handguns have to be in a belt or shoulder holster.

    The other CBS affiliate, News 9 in Oklahoma City picked up this story and is airing it today.

    If anybody is big enough to carry around something that size, they don't need to carry anything around.

    On a serious note - good on ya!

    stay safe.

    I was tempted to stop watching when I heard a permit was required to carry.
    I did stop watching when I heard that an officer can ask to see your permit if you're open carrying.

    The only downside to this is the fact that you still must have permission from your employees (read that as public servants) to openly carry your sidearm. The adage, "he who giveth can taketh away" comes to mind.

    On a positive note, you conducted yourself quite well.... congrats.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Great interview.

    On a side note, I don't like the permit issue.......'we need to see your papers'!
    I understand you can't have everything....hopefully in the near future you won't need to 'papers' to OC.

    Good job, Bryan ~

    The reporters did a decent job of reporting the facts in a favorable fashion.

    When the law was passed for Oklahoma I was stoked to hear about it. Good for y'all Okies!

    Take care now, sir.

    Respectfully,
    Billy

    Great job and welcome to the OC world. I spent near 2 years in Tulsa going to Spartan and loved the city. Here in Michigan we are a traditional open carry state, meaning we need NO permit to OC, only to CC. Your situation in OK. may not be ideal but it is a step in the right direction. congrats.
