State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all and Federal Firearms Laws.
State Laws to be aware of: It is illegal to possess a concealed firearm, loaded or not, on or about the person without a handgun permit recognized by Oklahoma. Oklahoma recognizes all other state’s permits. Oklahoma law provides several ways of transporting a firearm in a motor vehicle that are affirmatively legal with or without a permit: As long as you are not a convicted felon, you may legally transport a rifle, shotgun or pistol open and unloaded, which Oklahoma law defines as in plain view, in a case designed for carrying firearms that is wholly or partially visible, in a gun rack, or in an exterior locked compartment or trunk.
Also, any person except a convicted felon may legally transport a rifle or shotgun concealed behind a seat of the vehicle or within the interior of the vehicle, as long as it is not clip, magazine, or chamber loaded. Handgun permit holders may legally transport a clip or magazine loaded rifle or shotgun in a vehicle.
Check state laws for other pertinent legislation.
