    Ritze proposes open-carry gun law

    Friday, February 13, 2009 12:48 PM CST
    Freshman legislator Rep. Mike Ritze of Broken Arrow has introduced legislation that would allow the carrying of handguns and other firearms.

    Ritze’s idea, which he said is identical to an Arizona law, is being considered by the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.

    If passed, Ritze’s bill would remove the requirement of a license to openly carry a handgun, rifle or shotgun as long as the weapon is in a holster, scabbard or case and wholly or partially visible.

    Oklahoma is in the minority by not having an open-carry law of some kind. Eleven states allow open-carry under virtually all circumstances, 18 require an open-carry license and 15 others have other restrictions of some kind.

    Ritze said he introduced the bill to fulfill a campaign promise.
