Oklahoma Supreme Court rejects proposed state question to overturn ‘permitless carry’

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Supreme Court has rejected a proposed state question to overturn “permitless carry” but says a marijuana legalization proposal may proceed.

The high court issued separate rulings on the two state questions Tuesday.

It determined a brief explanation, or gist, of State Question 809 on so-called “permitless carry” didn’t accurately explain the proposal and was misleading.

Supporters had hoped to overturn the law that allows most adults to carry a firearm without training or a background check.
