They merely took out the word concealed portion of the SDA.

The big plus here is before if you let a shirt tail move when you bent over or reached up by the letter of the law you were brandishing. Now it's no law broken and an easy explanation. Show your license. Also you can tell a police officer at the first available time that you have a license. Before it was a $500 dollar fine. Still if you don't tell them you have a gun it's $100 misdemeanor.

The most important law was signed into law on Wednesday. The state and local government cannot not seize or confiscate any lawfully owned firearms during a natural or man made disaster. No Katrina here!!

I love a law abiding, gun toting Governor! God Bless her and our great state!! And God Bless America!!!!
That's a good point, about the anti confiscation part of what was passed. That was very important.

It was already legal for employees to have a gun locked in their car, I believe. For licensed CCP holders anyway.

Gov Fallin said if the legislation made it to her desk, she would sign it, and sign it she did. So far, we have little to bitch about where our new Governor is concerned.

ANYWHOO... she is a real down to earth person that shares the same views as most of us here do.
It's funny, I have a certain "faction" of my moms side of the family who are die-hard libs. The best they could come up with against Gov Fallin in the last election was the fact she pronounced government as "gurb-ment".

I would tell them, "yeah...cuz thats what REALLY matters".

Frickin' lib morons....

I did the same thing growing up...lived several miles out of town. But really, who the hell knows anymore? They may have made it illegal since then. Really, nothing surprises me anymore.

In my state, 500,000 people have permits to carry any way they want, but almost nobody does Why? Because in an urban environment, it is stupid to display your hardware. Any LEF or qualified defense instructor will tell you that. Having the right is important and in rural situations, maybe even appropriate. But to display your weapon to show others, "looky here at what I got," we'll that's just dumb in my opinion. And, since it's my opinion, I could be wrong.
