House OKs CareerTech Firearms Measure (May 17, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahomans with a license to carry a concealed firearm could keep their weapon secured in their vehicle on CareerTech campuses under a bill approved in the Oklahoma House.

The last surviving gun bill of the session was approved Tuesday on a 75-5 vote, despite opposition from officials with the vocational educational system that the proposal could pose a safety risk. The bill now heads to the Senate for final consideration.

Lawmakers have rejected several other firearms-related measures this year, including one that would have allowed the open carrying of firearms and another that would have allowed concealed carry permit holders to carry their weapons while on college campuses.

Supporters say the measure only applies to individuals who have obtained a concealed carry license, which requires training and a background check.
