There is an error above. OSBI processes and issues the licenses. Initial submission is taken to local sheriff and you are then fingerprinted, but it goes on to OSBI.

Can you clarify the laws for concealed or open carry for military members? I do not see anything in here about that and I have found conflicting information. Some say I’m free to conceal carry with just my military ID. Others say I need to have an Oklahoma driver’s license as well?

Bill
Guest
Bill

How about places where liquor are sold, like restaurants ?

Glenn
Guest
Glenn

The rule is 51% —if a restaurant’s/business revenue is 51% or more then you cannot carry, if less, then you can. However, there are prohibitions about being intoxicated as well.

Glenn

51% from alcohol sales then no; if less than 51% of alcohol sales then okay.

JASON
Guest
JASON

YES, IT COVERS BOTH. AS OF NOVEMBER 1ST. 2019 OKLAHOMA RESIDENTS WILL NO LONGER REQUIRE A CARRY PERMIT TO CONCEALED OR OPEN CARRY. CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY WAS SIGNED INTO LAW 02.27.2019

Wrong. It was passsd but they can not conceal it. It’s strictly open carry.

Joe Kent

With permit-less carry passing, you can conceal carry as well.

I live in Missouri and I read somewhere that Oklahoma will honor my constitutional carry as long as I have a valid id. Is that true? I lost the link and can’t find any info on it anywhere else.

Nickolas Curry
Guest

Yes it is. However, I always recommend checking with the Law Enforcement Agency responsible for CCW in the state you’re traveling to. Here in Oklahoma, that’s the OSBI:

No it’s not a law yet don’t listen Cameron. He’s from MDA and is trying to get you arrested.

Austin
Guest
Austin

Not until November 1st of this year. It will become a law then. As long as you’re not a felon you will be able to open carry. Don’t listen to Cameron. It is not a law yet. 8 more months then you’ll be aloud to do so.

This was dated September 16, 2018. ” Except where otherwise permitted by law, Oklahoma prohibits the transportation of a loaded handgun, rifle or shotgun in a “landborne” motor vehicle over a public highway or roadway. However, any person (except a convicted felon) may transport a rifle or shotgun clip or magazine loaded (not chamber loaded) if it is in an exterior locked compartment of the vehicle, in the trunk, or in the interior compartment of the vehicle. Any person (except a convicted felon) May transport a rifle or shotgun in a motor vehicle if the firearm is concealed behind a… Read more »

My wife did her CHL training in texas but we’re residents of oklahoma. Can she get her oklahoma CHL issued with her texas training certification?

Pete Sampras
Guest
Pete Sampras

TX and OK have reciprocity so she can use hers there but she can’t get her CHL there unless she takes the class over. This was based on early 2018 laws.

So I see that it says you can’t carry in WMA but I talked to a local game warden and he said as long as you have a license you can

Yes. Oklahoma honors TX CCW. And, why would you NOT have one in the chamber?

Oklahoma does honor GA’s CCW. Remember to notify officers immediately and carry your CCW license while carrying.

Going to move to Oklahoma in 6 months or so, Will a retired police ID qualify as an exemption?

John White

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

Jake H
Guest
Jake H

Barry you might look into LEOSA as well. According to LEOSA, as long as you meet the qualifications as either active Law Enforcement or Retired Law Enforcement, you are allowed by federal law to carry concealed in any state or jurisdiction, irregardless of any local or state law. I would, however, be mindful of NJ and their ‘interpretation’ of LEOSA, lol.

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

Maxwell
Guest
Maxwell

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

Barry O
Guest
Barry O

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

John White
Guest
John White

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.

Guest
Guest
Guest

It is my understanding that a home made gun does not require a serial number. I’m not talking about a receiver you order online and build in to a gun, I’m talking about a home made gun.

https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/does-individual-need-license-make-firearm-personal-use

No, a license is not required to make a firearm solely for personal use. However, a license is required to manufacture firearms for sale or distribution. The law prohibits a person from assembling a non–sporting semiautomatic rifle or shotgun from 10 or more imported parts, as well as firearms that cannot be detected by metal detectors or x–ray machines. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and advance approval by ATF.

[18 U.S.C. 922(o), (p) and (r); 26 U.S.C. 5822; 27 CFR 478.39, 479.62 and 479.105]

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?

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
Richard

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.

Umm, no. Are you allowed to go to work & keep your wages? YES Is there a time that you must be inside? NO Can the government come & move in w/o your permission? NO Are you still allowed to own weapons? YES Do you still have the ability to make comments like you did? YES = PRETTY FAR OFF FROM A DICTATORSHIP!

Nah that’s just straight sheer hell!

John White
Guest
John White

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.
