I was not a fan of the open carry bill that just died in legislature that would allow Oklahomans to openly carry a firearm without a permit.
Here's what you had to say about it.
Clay first, "Honestly I don't think someone is gonna carry a weapon without knowing how to use it.."
I wouldn't be so sure about that.
Richard from Pauls Valley writes, "I think it should be allowed, after all its a right protected my the 2nd Amendment. Training to handle the weapon should be a choice as well."
Dale says, "no permit or background check ( NO GUN)"
From Rick, "The current concealed carry permits don't have enough training coupled with the permits as I see it, but at least there is some degree of instruction... and an explanation of the huge liability involved."
Sheila writes, "It is our right to carry and be able to protect ourselves. Criminals don't care about laws and will always do what they want."
Jinni in Oklahoma City says, "Had the writers of the Constitution known there were going to be guns like we have today, I think they would have put restrictions on the right to bear arms."
From Debi, "I have my carry permit, I find not reason to open carry........element of surprise."
Finally, from Todd in Edmond, "Bunch of juveniles in the legislature want to go back to gunslinging days."
I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
