Many questions remain about open carry bill

Published: May 20, 2012

Can anyone seen openly and legally carrying a gun be stopped and asked to show their open-carry license? Who is or is not authorized to stop and question a person seen carrying a gun and ask to see the license? Does the open-carry bill make such provision? Many people will feel intimidated or made uncomfortable in the presence of openly carried weapons.

I have an Oklahoma concealed weapon license and shall continue to carry a concealed gun unless a new law makes concealment unlawful. As a combat veteran, I learned that it's good military strategy to keep your enemy (including outlaws) unaware or at least guessing as to your defensive abilities. Gov. Fallin and our legislators should've considered that which is good military strategy before making open carry part of state law.
