Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) vetoed a “constitutional carry” bill Friday, even though it passed both houses of the Legislature with veto-proof majorities and was strongly supported by state and national gun rights groups.

The bill, SB 1212, would have allowed Oklahomans to carry firearms without having to get a permit. Fallin, in a statement, defended her stance on the Second Amendment, which came under fire after the veto.

“Oklahoma is a state that respects the Second Amendment. As governor, I have signed both concealed-carry and open-carry legislation. I support the right to bear arms and own a pistol, a rifle, and a shotgun,” Fallin said in a statement.


The bill passed the Senate 33-9 and passed the House 59-28, but concerns from law enforcement and local businesses played a part in her decision to veto.
