‘Constitutional Carry’ Gun Bill Passes Oklahoma Senate!
Oklahoma Senate passes ‘Constitutional Carry’ gun bill, sends to Governor!!
If the Oklahoma Governor signs this Bill, it will be a major victory for the Second Amendment here in the United States. If signed into law, the legislation would allow handgun owners in the state to carry without first obtaining a license.
“The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday night passed the so-called “Constitutional Carry” gun bill in a 33-9 vote. The bill, which passed the state’s House of Representatives about a week ago, will now be presented to Republican Gov. Mary Fallin for a signature.
It’s not yet clear if Gov. Fallin plans to sign the bill, though Rep. Shane Stone, D-Okla., who voted against the bill when it went through the House, previously told Fox News he doesn’t expect Fallin to veto it.
Gov. Fallin declined to say whether or not she plans to sign the bill, a spokesperson told Fox News, adding that Fallin does not typically comment on pending legislation “until after the final version reaches the governor’s office, and she and her staff have a chance to review it.”
If passed, firearms would remain prohibited in schools and government buildings, among other places where weapons are not allowed, Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm, who authored the bill, said.
“This is something that we’ve been fighting [in favor of] for years,” Dahm told Fox News on Thursday, adding that expanding gun rights is an issue he has personally advocated for since he became state senator six years ago.”
Oklahoma could possibly join some 11 states that have already passed similar laws, according to the National Rifle Association (NRA).
With all the anti-gun rhetoric and bile spewing forth from the progressive left, it is reassuring to see that there are still some Constitutional common sense among some of our politicians.
