    Open Carry States When From A Concealed State

    Brand new member with a question. Oklahoma's open carry started today and I was wondering if I can open carry there or any state that allows it with my Texas concealed license? I am originally from Oklahoma and go there quite often for family but am confused by the language in the law saying Oklahoman's with a permit can open carry.

    You don't need no stinking license to open carry in Arizona, Texan or not.
    If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Here is what OK's law states:

    Section 1290.26.

    RECIPROCAL AGREEMENT AUTHORITY

    The State of Oklahoma hereby recognizes any valid concealed or unconcealed carry weapons permit or license issued by another state.

    Any person entering this state in possession of a firearm authorized for concealed or unconcealed carry upon the authority and license of another state is authorized to continue to carry a concealed or unconcealed firearm and license in this state; provided the license from the other state remains valid. The firearm must either be carried unconcealed or concealed from detection and view, and upon coming in contact with any peace officer of this state, the person must disclose the fact that he or she is in possession of a concealed or unconcealed firearm pursuant to a valid concealed or unconcealed carry weapons permit or license issued in another state. Any person who is twenty-one (21) years of age or older having a valid firearm license from another state may apply for a handgun license in this state immediately upon establishing a residence in this state.
    so you're good to go in OK>
    States donít have rights. People do.

    If you are visiting a state that does not require a permit/license to OC then it matters not if you have one. The only states where that would apply are the few states that require a permit to OC, then the question of reciprosity comes into play.

    A quick reference check can be made here: http://www.opencarry.org/?page_id=101

    Unless otherwise excluded, VA will always welcome you - OC rules
