The Oklahoma Senate passed a bill Wednesday night that would allow anyone over 21-years-old without a felony conviction to carry a handgun without a license.
Senate Bill 1212 is one step closer to becoming law as it moves to Governor Fallin’s desk for her signature.
Constitutional carry bill passes in Senate. Now moves to Governor @NEWS9— Aaron Brilbeck (@AaronBrilbeck9) May 3, 2018
The bill was passed by the state House Wednesday, April 25, and has fueled controversy as some opponents say it would remove background checks required to purchase a firearm.
If passed Oklahoma would become the 14th state not to require a license to carry a handgun.
