    I think there is enough support in the legislature to override any veto by Gov. Henry. At least I hope so.

    One legislator said he did not want there to be 200 folks carrying guns in the Mall. Well, there could be 200 folks carrying in the Mall now and that won't change, just a few of them will carry openly.

    A lot of those against the law don't realize that you still have to possess a Concealed Weapon License to carry concealed or openly.

    I think the people against open carry think that everyone who can legally carry will suddenly strap a hogleg (their words, not mine) on their hip and march around town.

    When the bill is signed into law, it will be a nonevent. Sure some will carry openly, but most won't. We just won't have to worry about breaking the concealment part of the present law.

    A extra part of the bill allows judges who sit on the State Supreme Court and the Appeals Court, who are not allowed to carry in the state buildings, to carry in their offices and courtrooms. I have a friend who is a Supreme Court Justice and would not like to see him hurt.

    And I do know Wal Mart forbids employee carry. I was talking about after work....
    Walmart forbids employees to have weapons in their vehicles as well. Granted Oklahoma has a parking lot law, but as employment is at will, they can and most likely will find some excuse to fire you.

    Funny.. In all the years I have lived here in New Mexico I have never even seen anything about carrying a gun on the news or anything... I think people worry about something that just isn't worth worrying about.

    And you don't even need a permit here for it!

    I suspect our governor will just not sign it rather than veto it. Not signing it has the same effect as a veto if I recall correctly from my Oklahoma history in high school. I think they call it a "pocket veto", but, I could be wrong.

    I don't think he can pocket veto. The legislative session doesn't end until May 28 and if he doesn't act by 5 days after it's presented it becomes law, according to the Oklahoma Constitution. It was actually officially sent to the Gov. on the 11th due to some sort of delay, so if he doesn't act on it by the 16th it becomes law.

    That's how it seems to me at least.

    Whew! That's really good news! I was applying/confusing the federal "pocket veto" process with Oklahoma's process. I sure hope you are correct.

    You are correct....unless it's within last 5 days of session not signing will cause it to become law.

    I live in Indiana, but visit my son and daughter-in-law and three grandchildren in Tulsa several times a year and didn't carry because of the stupid flash and print clause. I have a retired LEO national carry permit and usually use a fanny pack so I can carry non firearms related items also.

    Our fine Gov. Henry just vetoed the open carry bill. Hopefully the sponsors will try to overide his veto. The vote in the house and senate should allow an overide, since it did not have the emergency clause and only needs a two thirds vote rather than a three fourths.

    Next year will be a better year, since the election will take place in November and Henry cannot run again.

    On first glance it would appear the votes needed are there. One must take into account though that some who voted to pass this bill only voted that way because they knew the Governor would veto it. I would be interested to see how many change their vote if there is an over ride attempt.

    Henry has also been a real PITA on tax law issues too - he declaims he can change the laws merely because he does not like the laws.................

    It is time to throw him out!

    I hope the legislators override the veto!
