Support Constitutional Carry
On 25 April 2018, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry by a vote of 59-28. The bill had passed the Senate unanimously on March 6th, 2018. Constitutional Carry was part a bill removing wildlife refuges as gun free zones. The amendment process allowed the bill to bypass Senate committees that had blocked Constitutional Carry in the past.
On 2 May 2018, the Oklahoma Senate passed Constitutional Carry again. The popular bill had passed both the House and the Senate by veto-proof margins. It passed the Senate on a 33-8 vote.
Governor Fallin was term-limited, and could not run for governor for a third term. She felt free to violate her campaign promises and veto the popular bill.
On September 4, 2018, governor candidate Kevin Stitt said he would sign a Constitutional Carry bill. From news9.com:
I would sign it. I am a constitutional conservative. I support the first amendment, the second amendment and I think the best defense for a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun, said Stitt.
Kevin Stitt, the Republican candidate, was elected on 6 November 2018, with over 54% of the vote.
The results of the 2018 elections leave Republicans with super majorities in both houses in Oklahoma. In the Senate, Republicans have 39 of 48 seats. In the House, Republicans have 76 of 101 seats.
Senator Kevin Dahm has said he will reintroduce SB1212 this year.

An interesting trend in light of the general leftward move of states politically.
No big deal especially in light of the good news, but one thinks it’s Rep. Nathan Dahm.
You are correct. I cannot make a change on freerepublic.
OK went Super-Red in November bucking the national trend.
Constitutional Carry will arrive there before it comes to TX!
Hell....be careful with all Pubbies.......in sheep's clothing.
