NORMAN, Oklahoma -

We're just a few days away from Oklahomans being able to openly carry guns. It's a topic that's drawn fire from both sides.

On Thursday, Oklahoma joins 24 other states with similar open carry laws. Norman Police held a public forum Monday night to help insure people are on the same page.

A Norman police weapons instructor and city legal experts spent more than an hour Monday night answering many questions. There are a lot of questions because Oklahoma's open carry law is complex.

For instance, if you earn the license to open carry, it must be a pistol .45 caliber or less. It also must be carried in a belt, or shoulder holster, or in a case specifically designed to hold a gun.

There are strict rules about the kinds of places you can open carry in.
