Oklahoma bill introduced for Constitutional Carry

Our new governor, republican Kevin Stitt, stated during his campaign that he would support this action. One of the reasons I voted for him.

And if you ask anyone where I live in Oklahoma, the only people who find this “controversial” are the gun grabbers.

From News 9: A controversial bill to allow the permitless carry of handguns passes its first hurdle. Thursday, the House Public Safety Committee passed a bill allowing for constitutional carry.

Constitutional carry would allow any Oklahoman over 21 years old without a felony to carry a handgun, open or concealed, without first getting a license or training.

Training is an individual responsibility. It’s not the governments job to mandate training to you. It should be your individual responsibility to make sure you get yourself trained,” said Travis Couture-Lovelady of the NRA.

If it passes, Oklahoma would be the 15th state to have constitutional carry. The state currently allows visitors from those other 14 states to carry here without a license.

Backers say a lot of Oklahomans will continue to get the license though. “If they want to travel, they’ll still need that. If they want to go to Texas or other states, they’ll still need that permit for reciprocity, so they can carry across state lines,” said Couture-Lovelady.

Opponents fear the lack of requirements will be dangerous.

“National polling shows that most Americans are in favor of reasonable gun laws and licensing, getting a permit, going through some basic checks keeps everyone more safe,” said Rev. Lori Walke of the Mayflower Congregational UCC Church in Oklahoma City. “As far as Christians go, we follow someone who was a nonviolent resister. And we think that more guns make people less safe. We follow the prince of peace, not the prince of pistols.

The committee also passed bills that forbid companies like Uber from requiring drivers not carry and would not send felons back to prison for unknowingly riding in a car with someone who legally has a gun. All of those bills now go to the House floor for a vote.

The legislature passed Constitutional Carry last year, but it was vetoed by Governor Mary Fallin.

“Constitutional Carry”?….Seems awful ironic that we must rely on the passage of a “Bill” to exercise a right clearly defined with in our Constitution. And yet they still pose infringements not prescribed by our Constitution.

The fact is, like it or not, our Constitution allows that no one can be denied their second amendment right, ‘felon’ or not. If one is a free citizen of society, his/her rights are secure.

The NRA is stupid in their comment about training. No One should be able to carry unless they have 40 hours of training IMHO. I have 100 hours – paid by myself – to know firearms extremely well – as the father of a young Autistic boy, I take extra safety precautions, including locking all firearms always. But most people are too stupid to do the right thing, so they need mandates. I’m not worried about others carrying, unless they are emotionally immature, psychopathic, etc., and the system won’t protect against those few. But, an intense training program would help.… Read more »

Sorry Doctor Moebius, but you are so far off base that you are not even in the same city where the baseball stadium is. You indicated that you have 100 hours of firearms training. Well done. I hope you are a better shot for it. However, you have proposed a litany of firearm restrictions, prohibitions, unscientific, nonexistent “biometric” gun locks and barriers to lawful firearm ownership that Nancy Pelosi should give you a medal for joining her socialist gun grabbing army. Your would-be governmentally mandated training requirements would do absolutely nothing, and, I do mean nothing, for firearm safety. It… Read more »

And how would more firearm laws keep criminals from obtaining and using guns? c-r-i-m-i-n-a-l-s don’t need no stinkin laws. I’m with Oklahoma. Carry. Be responsible. Or suffer the consequences. Once the bullet leave the barrel you can’t call it back.

There is NO SUCH THING as a female “reverend”. All pastors of the Christian Church MUST be males.

Anyone want to debate me about this? Give ‘er a go and let’s see what happens. Good luck to you.
