House Bill 2597 legalized constitutional carry in Oklahoma after it passed by a vote of 70-30 in the House and 40-6 in the Senate. With the bill’s passage, Oklahomans can now carry firearms, openly or concealed, without a permit. Purchases of firearms still require background checks in the state.
Oklahoma joined over a dozen other states that recognized constitutional carry as law. The NRA has worked closely with the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association for nearly a decade to bring constitutional carry to the state.
