OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — Update: On Thursday afternoon the Oklahoma Supreme Court said State Rep. Lowe’s Emergency Motion for stay and temporary injunction is denied.
House Bill 2597, otherwise known as ‘Constitutional Carry’, will now go into effect Nov. 1 at 12:01 a.m.
The Supreme Court said the Emergency Motion for stay and temporary injunction is denied.
The new law makes Oklahoma the 15th state in the U.S. to recognize Constitutional Carry.
Anti-gun activists along with State Rep. Jason Lowe, Oklahoma City-97 (D), have asked the Oklahoma Supreme Court on Thursday to put the new Constitutional Carry Law on hold.
Their 25-page request came after an Oklahoma county district judge a day earlier denied a request for injunction pending a decision of a legal challenge that alleged the measure violated the Oklahoma constitutional requirement that bills address a single subject.
House Bill 2597, which allows for “constitutional” carry, is set to take effect Friday.
