    Welp, tomorrow is the big day for us. Open carry becomes legal here in Oklahoma. I'm still iffy on it though. I'm glad it's passing as it is a great step towards gun owners rights but I still think people are going to be stupid and not everyone is going to know how to handle it. What are y'all's takes on it?

    I'll continue to carry concealed when I do carry. I'd rather keep the BGs guessing.

    Our state has always been open carry. We have never had any rash of problems with this. Our fellow gun owners have been put down by the Liberal press so long many believe the BS. No ignore the Liberal crap your fellow Oklahoma gun owners are good people. Trust them your government is. This is another win for our side.;)

    there are gonna be tons of sheep calling the authorities reporting "man with a gun" everytime you turn around, and its already been stated by many departments that every person that gets reported is gonna be treated as a threat. whenever you are seen open carrying by a LEO you will be harrassed and asked for your CCL. im not against open carry at all but this is what i see happening for quite a while. i will remain concealed anyways just because i dont like drawing attention and i dont want people knowing my business.

    we shall see what happens

    Lets not forget that at one time, Every State In the Union had Open Carry! It wasnt always perfect but history showed that lessons learned made it safer than not.

    Re-opening doors that have been shut for eons comes with challenges and new lessons to learn but given some time for folks to become familiar with it, nearly all those problems will all but disappear.

    I wish we could get a few of your lawmakers to come up to NY and open up some minds!

    So true. It is strange people who are denied freedom for a long time are scared of it. This reminds me of a dog that has been rasied and lived its life in a kennel. One day you open the kennel gate and the dog is afraid to leave the the safety of the confine.:(

    I was reading online, on I think KFOR's website, that dispatchers have been/are being trained to get descriptions of the weapons and that for the next 8 months, no matter what, you're going to be asked for identification and your CCL which I agree with

    I stand firm that the right to bare arms is a right of any American but i will also stick to the idea that the best defence is a better offence...conceal carry provides this ...the element of surprise is a better tactical advantage than putting the bullseye on the back of your head. Stay concealed to stay alive. The life you save may just well be your own... Satajet

    i saw this the other day posted on the woodland hills mall in tulsa, and it wasnt there before November 1st " i know because ive looked". i dont really like going to the mall but the wife likes to go sometimes, way to many people for me...anyways, my point is,it pisses me off that they did this just because the open carry law is in effect now. another example of liberals at work

    There is a bar up in bricktown who did the exact same thing. What I find funny about it is that, you can't carry in a bar away so what would the point be?

    The point is ,you might be surprised about the #of people who "pack" into places without reguard to laws but may still comply with an establishments rules on conduct when asked or confronted...that being said. Some folks just need reminding...

    This was really prevalent here in Ohio after CC was passed a few years ago. It was a knee jerk reaction by shop owners everywhere. As people became more familiar with the law and the change most have went away.Hopefully, that holds true in OK as well.

    its BS really, whenever i see a mall cop i just shake my head. my wife says " you could take out most of them by yourself at one time"

    i say thanks babe.....

    but seriously i could :)

    i did see two uniformed Tulsa S.O deputies walking around so at least they were there.

    also it seems that whenever a new gun law passes "for the good" some people just lose their damn minds. we have had CC since at least 2001 "that i know of", so what makes the open carry law any different?

    Some folks ride the fence on the issue and if its out of sight they are fine but out for all to see creates an uneasy feeling...remember they dont know US and with all the shootings in the resent past they have to be wondering "is this person really competant and safety minded?" as well as other thoughts...heck even i have a question or two about some people i know...
