Wednesday, April 13, 2011, an effort was made to reconsider SB129 to authorize open carry.
The committee chairman, Representative Sue Tibbs, would not hear the bill.
Wow, contempt of constituents. What jerks. I hope this video gets out so people can see the arrogance of their Representatives.

After having high hopes that this state would go to open carry and to be let down by some republicans no less just simply disgusts me. I guess Rep Tibbs is getting what she wants by making us wait another year. She can no longer affect the outcome after next year as she has served the maximum she is allowed. She can then join the sheeple and be one of the targets for thugs. S#!+ another year of concealing. If this wasn't a great state I would consider moving to a more progressive state like Arizona.
Neoconis Americanis strikes again! Remember, being a republican means less than nothing.
OC is 0 for 2 this year with Arkansas and Oklahoma. We're a senate floor vote away from passing licensed OC here in Florida. If OC passes next week (we'll know the 27th, 28th, or 29th) the chance of the other red shall issue states going green or gold in the next few years is significantly enhanced. States copy each other.
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat
I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
Hmm if that was an accurate quote of the OK Constitution, that is a bit badly worded. Arms shall not be prohibited, but the state shall legislate the carry.

Simply garbage. They are elected to be for the people NOT AGAINST them. I have another year on my orders here in Oklahoma and would love to see OC legal here before my time is up. I may have to push for orders back to Virginia.
I feel like that old lady has never been told "no" in her life.
Licensing ensures that a person openly carrying a firearm understands when a gun may or may not be used, where it can or can't be carried and how to handle/operate firearms safely. It also confirms that the carrier has passed a thorough Federal background check.
This law was like doing away with driver's licenses. Making the public assume every driver is insured, can drive safely and understands the traffic laws. So, if we require a license to operate a vehicle on public roads, why wouldn't we require a license to carry a loaded weapon in public?
The combined cost is just $200 for the initial license and prerequisites. It's good for five years, and costs less than half that for renewals. I believe it is a very reasonable expense for public safety. Whether to actually carry open or concealed is subjective to the individual. As a CCL holder myself, I would still prefer concealed. However, it would be nice not to have to worry anymore about it accidentally showing. Being able to take my jacket off in a restrauant wouldn't be bad either.
Fire them!! Fire them ALL!!!!
As stated a licence for a right is stupid, as are a lot of our gun laws. Training is a good thing and should be offered, but it shouldn't be mandatory. Besides then you rum into subjective issues of just what should be required, just as how permit fees are subjective and can be used to be restrictive by unscrupulous people jacking up the cost. Having to pay $300 for your initial five years and 100 every five years after that adds up over the life of a person and doesn't actually do anything to make people safer; its just a needless cost to the member.
Oh and you sound like some of the other ORA trolls that have rolled through here with their single posts and then never posting again.

#4 is resembling a motorcycle license...I don't know if it is still the case but when I was 14 you could get a motorcycle license for 250cc and under.
Every 5 years the license is renewable at a cost of $20.
