GOA Welcomes Oklahoma to the Constitutional Carry Club

Springfield, VA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun Owners of America (GOA) celebrates Oklahoma for becoming the 16th permitless carry state in America.

“Kudos to Gov. Kevin Stitt for signing GOA-supported legislation that allows citizens to carry concealed without seeking prior permission from the government,” GOA Executive Director Erich Pratt said. “I thank all the GOA activists who spoke up in support of this bill.”

Gun Owners of America mobilized the grassroots in the state in favor of HB 2597 — and some of the GOA alerts are viewable here, here and here. GOA is also thankful to the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association for their valuable 2A support inside the state.

Oklahoma is the second state to enact Constitutional Carry this year. South Dakota joined the Constitutional Carry club in January, after Gov. Kristi Noem signed legislation that GOA had been actively pushing.

“The good news from Oklahoma and South Dakota only scratches the surface,” Pratt said. “Gun rights are advancing at a faster rate than gun restrictions are in this country — although the mainstream media usually chooses to ignore positive stories like this one.”

Oklahoma now joins the other 15 Constitutional Carry states: Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming — and most of Arkansas and Montana. By comparison, there was only one permitless carry state in 2000 — that being Vermont.

Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesman, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 2 million members and activists.

    Here is a quote from News 4 on that compromise “almost constitutional carry” from the Negotiating Rights Away and it’s cuck sidekick Oklahoma association that has fought every single type of carry bill we’ve had pass. “That was part of a deal cut with the Senate, wanting to deal with parks. Currently, you can open carry and conceal carry inside parks and zoos. The deal that was cut with Oklahoma City, Tulsa, the NRA and OK2A (Oklahoma Second Amendment Association), is to get rid of open carry in parks and zoos. Continue to allow conceal carry in parks and zoos,”… Read more »

    Don’t believe the liberal media, what OK2A is trying to do (using Echols) is make places operated under public trusts like the Gathering and the OKC Zoo obey at least part of the SDA laws by putting in wording that makes them have to comply with it. Currently they just completely prohibit guns, and OK2A is trying to change that, not make parks only conceal carry zones. If the bill passes this year OK2A will push further to get them to comply with all of the SDA, including open carry. If you aren’t a member of OK2A’s facebook page and… Read more »

    Thanks for almost giving me back the rights you stole in the first place.
    It’s a win for us but still……

    I think you’ll find that it is a prohibition on “open carry”, “in certain parks, and places like the zoo in OKC.” Concealed carry is will still be allowed. My question is does this apply equally to those with state issued permits.

    Lets all welcome the State of Oklahoma that will enable constitutional carry with some exceptions. Firearms would still be prohibited in public buildings, schools, professional sporting events, casinos, and night clubs. There is also a ‘trailer bill’ being introduced that would prohibit guns in certain parks, and places like the zoo in OKC. We all need to be aware that the right to carry without a permit does not begin until November 1st.
