OK becomes 25th state with open carry law.
Governor Mary Fallin on Tuesday signed into law Senate Bill 1733, the bill that allows Oklahoma citizens who are licensed to carry a firearm under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act to openly carry a weapon. It also allows property owners to openly carry a firearm on their property without a concealed carry permit for the purpose of self defense. "As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and a gun owner myself, I'm happy to sign this bill into law and grant law-abiding citizens the ability to openly carry firearms," Fallin said. Businesses may continue to prohibit firearms to be carried on their premises, under the new law.
