    Tulsa World - Senator Steve Russell files bill to legalize open carry

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Guns, smoking and texting while driving are among issues that lawmakers are expected to revisit when they return to the state Capitol on Feb. 6.

    Thursday is the deadline in both chambers for lawmakers to file bills for consideration in the upcoming session.

    Sen. Steve Russell, R-Oklahoma City, has filed Senate Bill 1092, which would allow those who meet certain requirements to openly carry a weapon.

    Here's a direct link to the .doc file that contains the language of this bill: http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/cf...1092%20INT.DOC

    A few points that I have noticed:

    Minimum age 21
    No permit required, but you must carry a certificate of training (knowledge of open carry laws and safe handling of a firearm)
    carry in a holster or scabbard (no retention requirement)
    The prohibited places in the Oklahoma Self Defense Act would also be prohibited for OC.
    It appears to allow you to carry loaded in a holster while in a motor vehicle

    My thoughts:
    I would like to see language that specifies that OC is not RAS for a stop... A guy can dream, right?
    Is there anything in here that prohibits prohibited persons, or is that already covered elsewhere?

    I'd like to invite all Okies who want OC this year to visit our facebook page, where we will be organizing open holster rallies, group visits to Senators and Representatives, and other activities to try to get this legislation passed. http://www.facebook.com/opencarryok

    Thanks for the link. I liked the page and will follow it from now on. I'm really pushing for it to pass. I have LEO's coming in and out of where I work all day and so far none of them have an issue with it. Even the 2 that work there are fine and dandy with it.
