Oklahoma goes Constitutional Carry!

I’m on a cross country road trip moving my son. We stopped for the night in OK and just watched the news anchor remind everyone that today marks the start of Constitutional Carry state!

Congrats Oklahoma!

PS the news anchor wasn’t too thrilled by the news. :confused:

@Sneezy Yes 100% correct. Of course except for the criminals. Same here for The Peoples Republic of Illinois.

I wish there was a Constitutional Carry bill passed here in Texas. Having to apply with the state (time and money), take classes (time and money), range test (time and money), finger print (time and money), wait up to 60 days (time and vulnerability), and then renew every five years (money)… this is a tax on my 2A right. And after all this the state will not back me up if I need to use the firearm in defense. Taxation without representation? (yes, it’s a bit of a stretch).

I was so excited to be in the state that morning - even though it was a surprise to me that they had changed the law! Listening to that newscast was definitely a moment I won’t forget!

Please do, I’ve been constantly pursing it, but then my mind got changed by my range owner, but NO! When I’m a lawyer or maybe in congress(dream) I’m appealing all gun restrictions starting at The Federal Firearms Act of 1938!!!

@Randall318 is there Lousiana constitutional carry movement? In Missouri we did it the old-fashioned grass roots way. My hubby was very active in the advocating and educating part of that movement, so I know it can be done.

Go find Your Tribe and see how you can help. Well, your Louisiana tribe… because we already know that WE’RE your tribe :grin:

I know you have a lot on your plate, but sometimes just making a phone call or sending an email as part of a bigger campaign can make a difference.

Well, I’ve reached out to my Sen. John Kennedy(PRO 2A) but, it was turned down in the Louisiana house in 2017 when he pursued it, but we did get a win last April that you can carry on church of course with Pastor acceptance. There was something else but, I’m emailing my lawyer on a civil matter and I’ll message you privately about that.

@Randall318 what worked in MO was baby-stepping it forward a chunk at a time. First shall-issue, then state preemption (to get everyone on the same plan), then OC, then constitutional carry. Took about 6 years, but each time the rights were expanded and people didn’t lose their minds and shoot everything in sight, it moved forward. We even overrode some governor’s vetos along the way. By the last baby step we were in landslide numbers.

Don’t think a swing and a miss in 2017 is a problem, just bite off a chunk and go again. :smiley:

@MikeBKY Are Constitutional Carry states just for the residents of that state?

That’s what I’ve done as well.

I mean I’ve gone to extremes with bill proposals, but they really liked them and, I would be happy to share what was sent to both my Congressman Mike Johnson (Which I’ve meet him and person before he was elected) as well as my Sen. Kennedy. I love both them.

Here is Kennedy watch this, and also watch a few others, regardless topic. He is straight forward.

With my usual disclaimer, I cannot give legal advice with respect to the laws of any state except Kentucky.

Whether constitutional carry applies to everyone, just citizens, 18+, 21+, etc., depends on how the law is written.
KY allows any person 18 or over who is not otherwise prohibited to carry concealed deadly weapons. This applies to all deadly weapons, not just firearms, defined by statute not otherwise prohibited by law.

I believe MO applies to all persons and the OK bill I looked at said all persons. One interesting thing I saw in OKs law was that you cannot carry anything larger than .45 cal. And it appears to only cover firearms.

KY deadly weapons:
“Deadly weapon” means any of the following:
(a) A weapon of mass destruction;
(b) Any weapon from which a shot, readily capable of producing death or other serious physical injury, may be discharged;
© Any knife other than an ordinary pocket knife or hunting knife;
(d) Billy, nightstick, or club;
(e) Blackjack or slapjack;
(f) Nunchaku karate sticks;
(g) Shuriken or death star; or
(h) Artificial knuckles made from metal, plastic, or other similar hard material;
Weapons of mass destruction are prohibited by federal law and other sections of KY law.
