Over the past couple of weeks, there's been a lot of questions and misconceptions regarding Oklahoma's "Constitutional Carry" laws. A lot of people think that permitless carry in the Sooner State only applies to the open carrying of a weapon and that you can't carry concealed. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Oklahoma's "Constitutional Carry" law allows a law-abiding citizen and resident of the state who is legally able to purchase and possess a firearm the right to carry either open or concealed. For whatever reason, a lot of people think you have to carry in the open if you don't have a valid Oklahoma concealed carry permit.

The law went into effect back in November of 2019 after (HB-2597) passed. You can click here to review the bill in its entirety. It clearly states that a person can carry either open or concealed without a permit under Oklahoma's revised weapon(s) laws. All the same rules and regulations still apply from the SDA (Oklahoma Self Defense Act) so you'll definitely want to familiarize yourself with it. The only change is the state no longer requires that you obtain a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapons) permit to carry within the Sooner State.

Over the last couple of weeks, online and elsewhere people have repeatedly asked about the laws or I've heard others unintentionally pass along bad information by telling people that they couldn't carry concealed without a permit. Then this morning I came across a Reddit thread with the same questions from people who have been told incorrectly. Not too sure where or when the confusion started but it's circulating around.

Make sure you're well informed, read and review all the current Oklahoma laws as it relates to self-defense and the carrying of weapons before doing so, or advising others. A great resource for this is OK2A (Oklahoma Second Amendment Association). Check out their official website to stay up to date or you can visit their Facebook page. You can also contact them directly with any questions you may have about the state's firearm laws. There are a lot of people misinformed about the law and spreading misinformation.
