    Good question. After doing some looking on the internet for any bills being submitted concerning new gun laws I was unable to find any. Apparently they consider the economy, education, health bill, and unemployment more pressing then open carry laws. It will come to pass hopefully soon. They keep saying good things come to those who wait. $#!+ I'm tired of waiting.

    They're to be presented to their specific groups (house/senate) starting Feb. 7, 2011. According to the legislative sessions if they pass and are signed by the Governor, unless they are made for emergency passage they won't become law until November.

    HB1463 Highly unlikely.
    HB1547 Don't care about that one one bit.
    HB1553. Good luck on that one after Tucson.
    HB1652 Mo big deal.
    HB1913 Makes sense.

    HB1400 ABSOLUTELY!!!!

    HB1470 Yes again.
    HB1796 Not ideal, but okay.

    So HB1400 = age 18+, no permit required, open carry??

    That isn't going to get passed. Do we have another open carry law that requires a CCW permit? I thought that was our only open carry bill being introduced.

    EDIT: Looks like HB1470 is the one that requires a permit.

    This is just the opening day of the legislature. They will vote today on rules and procedures. You need to contact your representative and have them vote in favor of the rule to force open debate on all legislation. That will prevent committee chairs from holding bills in committee so that they don't see the light of day. Specifically HR1004.

    This is the link to the actual text of the bill.

    This link takes you to the official web site. On the left is a "Find your representative" link.
    It should have email and phone numbers. The best way to get the most from your contact, other than being there in person, is to call them. Make it short, to the point, and courteous. Folow up with email, but not a mass mailing email. Personalize it in your own words.

    Ah thanks... man, I'd be lost w/out you guys.

    What is expected to happen now? Is there a schedule/calendar of events that makes this a little more understandable?

    Personal Bill Tracking

    If you go to this site, you can set up a personal list of bills to follow for the legislative session.

    Personally, I am following the bills listed below:
    HB1400 Crimes and punishments; firearms carried in certain manner
    HB1439 Crimes and punishments; expand right to use deadly force
    HB1463 Concealed handguns on college property
    HB1470 Firearms; clarifying manner in which firearms may be carried by handgun licensees
    HB1553 Carrying concealed handgun in certain places; modifying and deleting provisions
    HB1647 Authorizing issuance of lifetime concealed handgun licenses for military personnel
    HB1652 Concealed handguns; deleting technology center schools from list of prohibited places
    HB1653 Unlawful carry of firearms; clarifying penalty provisions
    HB1796 Legislative referendum; open carry of firearms
    HB1838 Firearms; exceptions to unlawful carry provisions for Legislature
    HB1911 Possession of firearms
    HB1913 Concealed handgun licenses
    HB2087 Crimes and punishments; concealed carry on college campuses
    HB2126 Crimes and punishments; concealed handguns on technology center school property
    HB2134 Firearms; unlawful carrying of firearms; punishment
    HR1004 House rules; bills and joint resolutions; hearings
    SB174 Shools - curriculum - sporting clays as permissible elective
    SB856 Self-Defense Act - conditions for carrying firearm
    SB858 Firearms - unlawful carry - college and university property
    SB896 Handguns - carrying concealed on higher education property

    Simply enter the bill number in the box at the top left of that page (multiple bills can be entered separated by a comma) and click Add to List. Then click Save List so you don't have to re-enter all the time. Click the Retrieve List and you can see the status of all bills you are tracking.

    http://www.okhouse.gov is the House of Representatives site and you can see the various calendars for committees so you can see when they meet. Not sure if they will post what the committee is dealing with that day or not. The senate has a similar site, http://www.oksenate.gov that probably lists the same type of info for them.
