Hello!

My names Alex, I’m 20 and my job requires me to drive a lot and be in a lot of places I’d rather not be unarmed. I don’t ever carry on my body unless I’m on my family’s land, I do keep a shotgun in the car. However, long guns are tricky in tight spaces, and I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on whether or not it’s ok for me to carry a pistol in my car.
I know under the new handgun law passed in November it says it’s legal, but honestly I’d like to know how OHP, OCPD or Tulsa PD would react if I happened to get pulled over for something else unrelated

if any of you are members of any of those departments I’d very much appreciate your input!!

Permitless carry for 21 and above (for the most part). You probably cannot transport a loaded long gun in a vehicle at your age.

Effective November 1, 2021, Oklahoma law generally authorizes a person who is not otherwise legally prohibited from possessing or purchasing firearms to transport both loaded and unloaded firearms “in or on a vehicle,” provided they are not carrying or transporting the firearm in furtherance of a crime.


The text from.. Unlawful Carry

1652201588704.png


A. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, it shall be unlawful for any person to carry upon or about his or her person, or in a purse or other container belonging to the person, any pistol, revolver, shotgun or rifle whether loaded or unloaded or any blackjack, loaded cane, hand chain, metal knuckles, or any other offensive weapon, whether such weapon be concealed or unconcealed, except this section shall not prohibit:

1. The proper use of guns and knives for self-defense, hunting, fishing, educational or recreational purposes;

2. The carrying or use of weapons in a manner otherwise permitted by statute or authorized by the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act;
....

6. The transporting by vehicle on a public roadway or the carrying of a firearm, concealed or unconcealed, loaded or unloaded, by a person who is twenty-one (21) years of age or older or by a person who is eighteen (18) years of age but not yet twenty-one (21) years of age and the person is a member or veteran of the United States Armed Forces, Reserves or National Guard or was discharged under honorable conditions from the United States Armed Forces, Reserves or National Guard, and the person is otherwise not disqualified from the possession or purchase of a firearm under state or federal law and is not carrying the firearm in furtherance of a crime.

OK2A was working to get that changed. Not sure if that was passed or still waiting to be passed
I think that’s why I wasn’t sure. I know when the laws first changed it was prohibited. I’m also not sure what happened with that though. I hope it changed or changes, because criminals will carry them anyway.

Where I am is where I'm at
IANAL or LEO

My 19 yo grandson was stopped. Simple traffic stop.
Cop asked if he had drugs or weapons in the truck?
He answered "there was an unloaded pistol in the truck."

Cop asked what kind? They talked guns for several minutes. Cop told him he was legal, as long as unloaded and separated from ammo. Then wrote ticket for Failure to Stop.

What’s your employer’s weapon policy? Mine says no weapons while working.
