Gun advocates claim victory in Legislature

Advocates for expanded gun rights in Oklahoma are claiming success in the 2012 legislative session after the passage of several pro-gun measures, including one that allows permit holders to openly carry firearms.

The open-carry bill, given final approval by the Legislature last week and awaiting the governor’s signature, has been a top priority for gun rights advocates in recent years. Gov. Mary Fallin already has signed a bill allowing gun owners from other states to carry concealed weapons in Oklahoma, and another bill approved by the Legislature and sent to Fallin would prohibit the governor or any other state or local official from confiscating or banning firearms during a state of emergency.
