OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt held a ceremony Wednesday to sign the "Constitutional Carry" bill, which will allow Oklahomans to carry a gun without a permit or training.

Stitt signed House Bill 2597 at the Oklahoma Capitol around 4:30 p.m. after it passed the Senate by a 40-6 vote.

DETAILS ABOUT CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY BILL

A similar bill was vetoed last year by former Gov. Mary Fallin.

According to the National Rifle Association, at least 14 states have approved some version of permitless carry, most recently South Dakota, where it was the first bill signed by new Republican Gov. Kristi Noem.
