Constitutional Carry becomes law here in Oklahoma effective November 1, 2019.
My permission slip to carry has expired and I’m just patiently waiting.
It expired because of medical issues I had going on and don’t see the need to renew for now.

Since you mention medical issues, and I really DON'T want to know what they were, be careful. If you were a prohibited person before because of your medical issues, you are still prohibited under the new law. The only thing the law changes is removing the requirement to have a piece of plastic issued by the state.

Sorry, okie, not sure the OP is deserving of a public admonishment from you and it seems completely unwarranted to accuse the poster by stating, “if you were...” based on their initial post.

This was meant to be a "cautionary note" not an accusation. The OP used the words "expired because of medical issues." I included the "IF" because I wanted to give the OP the benefit of the doubt. Many people I have spoken to about the new law think that it removes the current restrictions and that truly "anyone" can carry without restrictions. That is the misconception I intended to address.

How pray tell are LEs or citizens going to know if another armed citizen’s is prohibited until after an SD event?

Surely the nice LEs are not going go into a “papers please” mentality whenever the spot a OKIE citizen carrying are they?

I would never advocate lawlessness, per se., but isn’t concealed ~ out of sight out of mind ~ type of carry concept?

Ya medical issues like heart, or kidney, or cancer, or joint replacement, or stroke, or or a lack of $$$ while laid up while medically recuperating caused the lack of renewal of their permit?
