OOOKLAHOMA, WHERE YOU CAN NOW OPEN CARRY A FIREARM

Quote:On Thursday, concealed-carry gun license holders will be given a new right in the state of Oklahoma: the ability to wear their guns outside their clothes and in open view. And the new law caught the eye of the New York Times.

The Times did a two-page writeup on the new legislation. We’ve included it in part below (pay special attention to the last paragraph):

In a state with 142,000 men and women licensed to carry concealed weapons, the scene at Beverly’s will most likely become commonplace as Oklahomans take advantage of the law by displaying their handguns while they shop for groceries, eat at restaurants and walk into banks.
Advocates for gun rights said the ability to “open carry” would deter crime and eliminate the risks of a wardrobe mishap, such as when someone carrying a concealed weapon breaks the law by accidentally exposing the firearm. But the new law is a symbolic as well as practical victory. Supporters said there was no better advertisement for the Second Amendment than to have thousands of responsible adults openly carrying their weapons in a highly visible fashion.

Though common around the country, these laws in several states have posed legal and logistical problems for municipalities and law enforcement agencies seeking to balance gun owners’ constitutional rights with maintaining order.
Even in Western and Midwestern states where support for gun rights is strong, the laws have often passed after lobbying efforts lasting years, and have led to confusion and debate about where it is appropriate, let alone legal, for people to openly display their handguns..........

Just read this on the Blaze... good for them. Time to update the map on opencarry.org. when I told people that OC wasn't legal in some of those southern states they are amazed.
