Governor to sign bill allowing open carry

Open Carry

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahomans who love their guns will be interested in a bill now headed to the Governor.

A bill to allow Oklahomans with a concealed carry permit to openly carry holstered firearms has been given lawmakers’ stamp of approval; the Senate passed it 33 to 10.

Oklahoma law enforcers, including Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty, strongly opposed the bill.

Officers fear it will cause confusion at crime scenes.

Gov. Fallin said she’ll sign the bill which will go into effect Nov. 1.
