OK Senate Passes “Constitutional Carry” Bill Wednesday Night

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Senate passed a bill Wednesday night that would allow anyone over 21-years-old without a felony conviction to carry a handgun without a license.

Senate Bill 1212 is one step closer to becoming law as it moves to Governor Fallin’s desk for her signature.

The bill was passed by the state House Wednesday, April 25, and has fueled controversy as some opponents say it would remove background checks required to purchase a firearm.
