Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin vetoes controversial 'constitutional carry' bill

1212, been signed into law, Oklahoma would have kept its licensing provisions on the books, but no longer mandated them for those wishing to carry a firearm in public.

While the group's state affiliate has heartburn over the bill's deletion of the training requirement to carry a concealed weapon, the National Rifle Association supports SB 1212 saying it is in line with the Second Amendment and is urging members to reach out and contact Fallin, asking for her approval.

Further discussion includes the state Supreme Court upholding Oklahoma's Voter ID law and the Senate Democrats select Kay Floyd as their next leader.

Fallin's veto comes after several Republican gubernatorial candidates urged her to sign the bill, the Associated Press reports.

"I believe the firearms laws we now have in place are effective, appropriate and minimal", Fallin said in announcing her veto of Senate Bill 1212, which would have removed the requirement for Oklahoma residents to complete a training course and demonstrate competency with a firearm before carrying in public.

The invoice is just like so-called "constitutional carry" laws adopted in a dozen different states.

Deepika chose a black fitted gown by Marcell Von Berlin featuring a deep plunge, larger than life sleeves and a short train. Huma's lovely locks were left open and she had bold red lips and a pair of stilettos to go with her ensemble.

The state now requires a license to carry a handgun openly or concealed. It will have licensed folks 21 and older and army personnel who're a minimum of 18 to legally carry a handgun, both brazenly or hid, and not using a state-issued license or allow. I support the right to bear arms and own a pistol, a rifle, and a shotgun. "The Oklahoma legislature has played politics with their state's most vulnerable kids".

"The OSBI recognizes the leadership shown by Governor Fallin in vetoing SB1212".

The bill is now the first anti-LGBTQ state bill signed into law in the country this year.

Oklahomans believe that law-abiding individuals should be able to defend themselves.

Fallin has vetoed gun bills before. In 2015, she vetoed legislation that restricted businesses from banning guns at parks, fairgrounds and recreational areas, a veto that remained in place.
