OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A bill to allow Oklahomans to carry a gun, even without a permit, has passed the state Senate and goes to the governor.
The bill by Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm passed on a 33-9 vote shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday as senators met late into the night.
The bill would allow people 21 and older and military personnel who are 18 and older to carry a gun without a license.
Anyone prohibited by state or federal law from owning a weapon and those convicted of assault and battery, domestic abuse, violating a protective order or drug crimes would not be allowed to carry a gun.
Dahm said the bill would have no effect on places where the carrying a weapon is prohibited, such as elementary schools, colleges and government buildings.
