Group hopes to change open-carry bans in six states

From Oklahoma:
Donald Ohse is part of a movement to change laws in several states, including Oklahoma, so people can openly carry their weapons.

This movement is an online drive to get enough signatures of like-minded people to influence legislators to pass open carry laws. He said he’s gotten 1,300 signatures.

Ohse already is licensed under Oklahoma law to carry a concealed weapon.
Stollenwerk said he thinks that letting people carry guns openly will let someone with bad intentions know that you are armed.

"While I understand that sometimes it is a tactical advantage to be concealed, sometimes it might be the other way,” he said. "Everybody should have the right to choose.”
