Over 350 new laws will take effect in Oklahoma next Monday, including State Senate Bill 646.
Bill 646 will allow liquor stores to regulate weapons. With the permission of store owners, employees are now allowed to carry guns. Terry Sterling, owner of Captain Jack’s liquor, says he will give his employees permission.
“I’m not opposed to it,” says Sterling. “I’m really not opposed to any store or any store clerk being able to protect themselves.”
The amount of laws passed this year is a big turn around from 2020, when only 60 laws were passed due to the pandemic.
