Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) signed legislation Wednesday to abolish his state’s concealed carry permit requirement.
Oklahoma joins Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Vermont as the 15th state to declare the Second Amendment as an individual’s carry permit.
On December 14, Breitbart News reported that Oklahoma was on the verge of abolishing its carry permit requirement. Lawmakers tried to abolish the requirement under former Gov. Mary Fallin (R), but she vetoed their legislation. Stitt came into office voicing his support for eliminating the permit requirement.
