FOX NEWS — The Oklahoma City Thunder joined more than two dozen businesses, public universities and law enforcement groups Wednesday in opposing firearms bills that would allow most adults to openly carry guns without training or background checks.
The groups sent a letter to Senate President Prop Tempore Brian Bingman urging him to halt the two bills. One of them passed late Wednesday on a 37-9 vote.
The “constitutional-carry” bill would allow Oklahoma adults over 21 without a felony conviction to openly carry guns without a license, training or background checks. Those who wished to carry concealed would still be required to obtain a license.
The bill is now scheduled to go to a conference committee for possible changes before it is considered again in the House and Senate.
