OKLAHOMA CITY, OK. — As of November 1 2019, Oklahoma residents 21 and older may now legally carry concealed or unconcealed firearms without a license, a background check or firearms training.
Firearms would still be prohibited in certain locations, including public buildings, schools, professional sporting events, casinos and bars.
“I just don’t like asking government for permission to exercise a constitutional right. It’s that simple,” said Don Spencer, a citizen activist who has pushed for looser gun laws at the Capitol for nearly a decade.
Oklahoma has a Republican governor and both houses are Republican controlled.
