Senator Craig Estes Files Open Carry Bill

Senator Craig Estes Files Open Carry Bill

State Senator Craig Estes filed an Open Carry bill this past Friday.

The bill would allow anyone with a license to open carry a handgun, so long as the handgun was carried in a shoulder or belt holster.

If passed, the license to open carry would replace the existing Concealed Handgun License (CHL).

Applicants would have to meet the same requirements as they currently do for  the CHL.

Those that already have a CHL would not have to re-apply; their licenses would automatically be updated to Open Carry.
