Oklahoma Senate Passes Bill Allowing Open Carry Without Training

The Oklahoma state senate passed a bill Wednesday that would allow citizens to open carry firearms without having to receive training.

The legislation has already passed the state house and allows that anyone who is over 21 years old and is not a convicted felon can carry a visible gun.

However, there are plenty of organizations against the bill. Most notably the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. The Thunder and the OHP are among two dozen businesses, universities and law enforcement groups that are now urging the state’s senate leader to kill the measure. In response, the NRA is now sending its members into the capitol in support of the measure.

Now the bill goes back to committee for possible changes or it could be kept the way it is. If there are change the process will start over. If not, it goes to the governor.
