    I'm in Tulsa visiting family. I saw a guy at the local Starbucks wearing a nice shirt (tie and slacks as well) with a huge Glock on his hip. He had a really nice badge on his belt as well.

    Too bad Oklahoma, like Texas where I live, allow law enforcement to carry openly but the rest of us need a license and even then can only carry concealed.

    Before coming I spoke with an attorney here in OK before setting out on our drive up to know what the gun laws. I'm still waiting for my CHL so not surprisingly there's little I can do. My handgun has to be unloaded and locked up in the trunk (or in my case, a gun safe since I drive a truck).

    I asked the attorney what he thought about the chances of OC passing OK. He wasn't optimistic at all.

    Any opinions from those on the front lines here?

    I wouldn't let one man's opinion discourage me from trying to change things. I'll bet a lot of Florida attorneys weren't "optimistic" about seeing a concealed carry law in 1987, but Marion Hammer knew better. :P

    I agree 100%. Since I don't live in OK anymore I was asking folks I know who do live there what they thought.

    Are there any state organizations spearheading this? Tulsa area?
