Could Handguns Be Banned In Oklahoma?
Could handguns be banned in Oklahoma? Tim Gillespie, Co-Founder of the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association, explains why the Oklahoma Constitution needs to be amended to protect the right to keep and bear arms in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Constitution, SECTION II-26, covers bearing arms – carrying weapons. It reads:
The right of a citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person, or property, or in aid of the civil power, when thereunto legally summoned, shall never be prohibited; but nothing herein contained shall prevent the Legislature from regulating the carrying of weapons.
