Effort To Revoke Permitless Gun Carry Law Launched

OKLAHOMA CITY – A group led by a Democratic state lawmaker launched an effort on Monday to prevent a signature piece of legislation championed by Gov. Kevin Stitt from taking effect.

House Bill 2597, called the “permitless carry” bill, was the first new law signed by Stitt. Authored by state Rep. Jon Echols, R-Oklahoma City, and state Sen. Kim David, R-Porter, the measure allows for people age 21 and over, or people 18 and over who are veterans, active duty or reserve military members, to carry firearms without a permit. However, it prohibits felons, people convicted of domestic violence and people who have been adjudicated as having a mental illness from carrying a firearm.
