What is the date of the document that this was pulled from?
If recent - This is what you want to dig into… See where it says “Except as otherwise provided…”? That’s your clue.
Even as VP of this states NRA affiliate, laws are so often written that it makes one wonder if someone doesn’t want you to know and I have often wanted to pull my hair out. It compounds the issue when a law is added/ changed and they fail to strike a portion of the old.
I’m not an attorney so … but here is my take on it. That’s almost word-for-word AR law reading. Here, it is understood that if a person is ‘transporting’ on the way to go turkey hunting, for example, the firearm must be unloaded. Transporting being defined as other than carrying. To carry unloaded would defeat the purpose of carrying.
This is probably something that you may want to bounce off of your Sheriff, a good attorney, or contact your state NRA affiliate http://www.oklarifle.com/
As AR law is written, if we have a CC Permit, we are not allowed to Open Carry because an old section of law was not stricken or reworded when we went Constitutional Carry. We are trying to have this resolved but, it takes some time. And this hasn’t been a good year to try to get things accomplished.
