OK Governor Signs 2 Pro-Gun Measures

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin recently signed two pro-gun measures into law, further strengthening the right to keep and bear arms for Sooner State gun owners.

Senate Bill 35 provides that active and reserve military and National Guard members in the state who are age 21 and older can use their valid military ID in place of a handgun permit to carry a firearm for self-defense. Senate Bill 397 lifts the prohibitions on the legal carry of handguns on public buses, which was previously illegal and carried a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Both laws will take effect on Nov. 1.
