OK State Sen. Wants To Drive Down Cost Of Carry Permits

posted on December 19, 2016

Fearing that the cost of obtaining a Right-to-Carry permit could keep some law-abiding Oklahomans from being able to afford it, one state senator is pushing to reduce the cost.

State Sen. Josh Brecheen wants to reduce the costs from both the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and from local sheriff’s offices. He’s proposing a reduction of the $100 for a new license and $85 for a re-licensing fee to $25 each.

"It's an attempt to make sure cost isn't keeping someone from the right to bear arms in accordance to the law," Sen. Brecheen told kfor.com.

Throw in the costs of a concealed carry course, and the total cost to get a carry permit in the state is close to $200.
