I have been "conceal and carry" since 2009. I have been open carry on my own commercial property for those years and not once have I been bothered by law enforcement. The background check alone weeds out the criminals. Not everybody is a John Hinkley in waiting and I seriously doubt the one's who are don't have permits. I open carried all over New Mexico and Arizona and not one cop approached me. It isn't even legal for a cop to harrass you without just cause. If I am approached for exercising my right to open carry then the cop in question will be in front of a State Court Judge to show cause. It will only take one of those instances for them to back off. Governor Fallin stated that "with the signing of this Bill we insure that all law abiding Oklahoman's can exercise their Constitutional Right to bear arms. It also insures that we have a standing militia." Now I have paraphrased her comments but those were her words and she said them for a very valid reason. Law enforcement should not look at us like we're the criminals. They should look at us as a citizens who are able and willing to defend ourselves under any circumstances. A gun in the hand is worth two cops on the way."
