Details on Oklahoma Gun Laws

Concealed carry permits/licenses are issued by by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Applications are submitted to the sheriff of the county you reside in.
90 Days
The application for a concealed carry permit/license must be processed within 90 days of the application being received.
YES
Oklahoma gun laws say you must immediately inform law enforcement you are carrying a weapon if stopped by them. You are also required to carry your permit at all times you are carrying a weapon.
NO
“No Weapons” signs are not mentioned in Oklahoma gun laws. There are no legal penalties for entering a private property or business that has posted these signs. They have no force of law unless they are posted in areas that are mentioned by the law as being off limits.

GunsToCarry recommends that you do not enter a property displaying a “No Weapons” sign whether the law is for or against signage. If asked to leave a property and you refuse to do so then you are breaking the law and put yourself at risk of being charged.

YES/NO – Without a Permit/License
The law states it is illegal to carry a loaded firearm in any vehicle without a permit/license. You can carry in a vehicle if the firearm is unloaded and in plain view.
NO – Without a Permit/License
You can only open carry if you have a permit/license or you are from one of the following permitless states – AK, AZ, VT and WY. The minimum age to open carry is 21 years.
YES – In Restaurants That Serve Alcohol
“Yes” or “No” states if you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Some restaurants may be posted with “NO GUN” signs. Check with the staff if this means just the bar area. If we have indicated a “Yes” then it should be legal to have a meal without drinking alcohol.
YES
You are permitted to carry in state parks, state forests, and roadside rest areas. But it is illegal to enter any buildings in these areas as they are government property. WMA’s (wildlife management areas) are also off limits.
