Mary Fallin on Gun Control
Gun ownership is a constitutionally protected right
In Oklahoma, we respect the Constitution and the rule of law. We own guns for hunting, sport and self defense, and we are proud of that tradition.
It is a tradition that we share with our Founding Fathers, who made gun ownership a constitutionally protected right.

Right to bear arms is in Constitution for a good reason
I believe that the basic freedoms assured by our Constitution, including speech, religion, assembly AND the right to keep and bear arms--are there for a good reason, and must be defended against those who would threaten them.
The Second Amendment
means exactly what it says, and I will defend the right of every law-abiding citizen to own guns. Responsible gun ownership is a basic right, and I will never vote for legislation that abridges that right.
I am a member in good standing with the NRA.

Fallin signed H.R.197&S.845
Establishes a national standard for the carrying of concealed firearms (other than a machinegun or destructive device) by non-residents. Authorizes a person who has a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state and who is not prohibited from carrying a firearm under federal law to carry a concealed firearm in another state:

Notwithstanding any law of any State, a person who is not prohibited by Federal law from possessing a firearm and is carrying a valid license to carry a concealed firearm may carry in another State a concealed firearm.
- If such other State issues licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may carry a concealed firearm in the State under the same restrictions which apply in that State.
- If such other State does not issue licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may not carry a concealed firearm in a police station, in a courthouse, at a meeting of a governing body, in a school, at an athletic event, in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages, or inside an airport, except to the extent expressly permitted by State law.
