Contact CLEET (Council on Law Enforcement, Education, and Training) about getting a retired law enforcement officer permit. I have one.

Is Oklahoma a state that requires a serial number on the handgun

Maxwell

I believe that it’s extremely illegal to have any firearm with no S/N on it in every state

Hum, there are homebrew firearms made from plastic that don’t require a serial number.

John White
Guest

80% lowers do not require a serial number. However, once it is capable of firing ammunition, you are required by federal law to get a SN issued for that weapon.

John White

It’s a federal law to have a SN on a handgun.

Does anyone know if I can get a permit in Oklahoma at Page Firearms? Are they still open? I called and nobody answered.. http://pagefirearmstrainingllc.com/

OK CCW law is racist, all other states in the lower 48 permit Green Card holders to have a CCW. The handful of legal permanent residents in the USA are more heavily vetted than FBI agents; I will just bring my Tennessee permit with me. Mary Fallin may be a RINO, very endangered species in US politics; suggest y’all vote for Bernie, at least he is an honest communist

Does anyone want anyone out there that doesn’t have any clue as to what they are doing w/a gun to be carrying? I believe that a training course should be in place. Something that proves that that person has had training on that particular gun & the laws that one should know. If this was a part of that bill, just maybe Fallin would have signed. W/o any training, that law would have been stupid to start with in the first place! I’m still in wonder that others would want dumb &/or ignorant people carrying a handgun? REALLY? To know… Read more »

Shall not be infringed, these people making unconstitutional laws are the enemy within. They will dismantle our democracy as soon as they take our guns via a registration list. They need to be smoked out of their hiding places within our free people’s government, identified and never be allowed to be in politics again. Make it a crime to enact laws that are unconstitutional, a felony so they can never be elected again.

Last I checked we have a Republic. Not a Democracy. Do some research on the difference

Jimmy Speegle

The Government we have is a Democracy, did you not Vote. If Hillary Clinton were to become President some day, then you can say we have a Republic.

Richard
Guest

Apparently you didn’t do the research. David is correct; we are and have been a Constitutional Republic since the Constitution was signed and put into effect. You are also incorrect about Hillary Clinton; she would have tried to form a dictatorship.

Isn’t dictatorship what we have with donald

John White

Obama was the dictator who ruled through presidential fiat (executive order) whenever he could. Donald’s been taking away Obama’s dumb executive orders and taking government restrictions off our backs. It doesn’t get any less dictatorial than that.

That isn’t racist at all. The law applies equally to all persons of all races who do not have citizenship. England, Somalia, Nicaragua, Russia, China…if you aren’t a citizen, then you’re not getting issued a CCW permit.

Jennifer Poper

The bill must be approved by the Senate next week and then Mary Fallin must sign it before it becomes law. (as for today)

What is the process to overturn Fallin’s veto?

It is now waiting the Governors signature.

If the Governor signs it, it may not be immediately a law so you need to check the effective date on this when she signs it

If she signs it the new rule will go into effect Nov. 1
