    Please send us some of your legislators. The 33 that voted yes would be nice. We will return them upon Texas going Open Carry. Thanks for your help.


    Your southern neighbor,

    This is still a great sign of things to come. 33-15 is a very positive number!

    Grats Oklahoma - this is huge news.

    Or what menace meet on the road.

    Great news. Any move toward OC is a good one. Still, I hope the next move will be to un-hook OC from the CCW permit. After all, if Oklahomans have the right to keep and bear arms, why should they need a permit to exercise the basic form of that right: open carry?

    Mainly because there is money to be made by the state. I agree, god has granted us our freedoms, and our constitution has guaranteed it, I just love those libs that say it is ok to have a gun, but then LIMIT your ability to carry it. Who are they kidding? we need to vote all dems out along with RINOS too, (republicans in name only)

    You beat me to the punch Dutch, I was going to say the same thing. It'd be better if it was unhooked from the CCW permit, but hey, one small step for Oklahomans, one giant leap

    Almost all of the legislators in Texas are gutless cowards. I think that the gutless Perry should call a special session to deal with a lot of issues that are very pressing at the moment. He won't because, well, he's got no intestinal fortitude.

    I find it very hard to believe that the people of Texas chose him to be the Republican nominee over the best candidate we've seen in decades. Maybe the people of Texas (as a whole)have become just as gutless as our leaders. I think it is time to make a move to Arizona.

    I was shocked the first time I read that Texas was no-OC. I always thought Texas was where cowboys came from, and whoever heard of a cowboy without a gun? I'm rooting for you guys. Hopefully they take a look at OK and follow suit.
    There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away, mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting. I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing. Doomed to crumble, unless we grow and strengthen our communication. -Tool, "Schism"

    Hopefully the Oklahoma House and Gov. go along with this and legalize OC this year in oklahoma.

    Then you guys in Texas and Arkansas can try to make another go of it - clearly it needed to become an issue in teh exas Gov's race and then the winner needs to follow thru

    Not even sure that Perry will win the Gov. race. He's got a lot of unclaimed baggage. Gadasil, Trans Texas Corridor and a lot more. Especially when people find out that the TTC is still alive and well as well as other big toll roads.

    so from all ive gathered that the new open carry will you be required to have a concealed carry license first or what I'm concerned about it all but its just not coming all together...but also from where i stand im an 18 year old and i do know that in the state of oklahoma you cannot get a concealed carry until 21...but what i do not understand is that i do have the option to go into the armed forces...which dont get me wrong i respect what they do for my freedom its stupid that i can go over seas and carry a high powered rifle but yet i cant carry a pistol...i've lived in oklahoma all my life so guns are nothing new to me and ive had my life time hunting/fishing license since 2002 and ive been allowed to carry a rifle/shotgun to go hunting...just if anyone can shed some light for me i would greatly appreciate it...

    I always thought it was where steer and ****** came from....

    I'll not postulate on this correlation, if any, to a lack of OC.

    My state rep will be at the local gun club meeting tomorrow. They've moved to a bigger venue and invited the public.

    I plan to give him my priorities, in order of importance:
    1. Repeal all of PC Chapter 46
    2. Join Arizona and Alaska (license not required for CC or OC, but available for those who want reciprocity)
    3. Legalize OC, even if CC still requires a license
    4. Repeal the ban on school carry
    5. Repeal any statutory prohibition on carry in private property (schools, sporting events, 51% locations)
    6. Reduce the penalty for trespassing while armed to a Class C misdemeanor with maximum $50 fine and no loss of license.
    7. Create a presumption of liability for business or property owners when someone suffers a criminal attack on property that has been posted to ban guns.
