A change in law that goes into effect on November 1 could affect those who are applying for their gun license this year, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

If you want to get your gun license and have completed the Oklahoma Self Defense Act Gun Safety Training Course, the OSBI encourages you to start the application process with the agency as soon as possible.

According to the OSBI, House Bill 2874, which goes into effect on November 1, modifies the Self-Defense Act so that SDA certificates are valid for three years from the date of training and demonstration of competency and qualification.

Previously, SDA training certificates did not expire.

Anyone who completed their training prior to November 1, 2011, who has not submitted an application, will need to re-take the training course and get a new certificate once the law goes into effect, according to the OSBI.

You can visit OSBI’s website to submit your online application. Applicants who complete their online applications on or before the date of expiration of their certificate will have their applications accepted by the OSBI. Individuals submitting expired training certificates will have their applications returned, according to the OSBI.

Currently, 199,731 Oklahomans have a license to carry a concealed or unconcealed firearm.
