"The only exceptions to Oklahoma's law allowing people to have weapons in their cars are at federal facilities and schools and if a person is a convicted felon."
Felons can't have firearms. Depending on state law, the Federal gun free school zone law does not apply if the person has a license to carry a gun. Even all Federal facilities are not necessarily off limits, it depends on what facility and whether it is a fenced and restricted access parking lot. If it is open to the public, it is legal to have a firearm unless you are an employee with a work rule [which is unconstitutional IMHO].
What those companies are concerned about is not the safety of their employees, but some potential liability if they allow guns lawfully on their property. What they don't recognize or care about is that "killers' don't care and may be encouraged by a gun free policy, more unarmed victims.
This court rule is now the law in Oklahoma, Kansas and other states in the 10 th Circuit, including Colorado. Maybe someday it will go to the U S Supreme Court and become nationwide law.

You can have your gun in vehicles in any parking lot,according to Self-Defense Act. Its any parking lot, any where a public vehicle may travel.

A federal judge should have never stuck his nose in the business of the State of Oklahoma to begin with.

The outcome of this entire deal is good news for the law abiding gun owners, but keep a careful watch out for stuff like this in the future.

YEAH! Oklahoma is by far one of the most pro gun states and I love it! Conoco Phillips, I have not purchased your gas since 2004 when you did this and I never will again. Thanks to the NRA for their efforts in helping get this bill declared constitutional and to Gov Henry as well as Drew Edmondson for supporting this bill. Conoco Comie, You lost.

its about time these liberal loving one world goverment corporations understand they do not have the right to say you can't defend yourself while in transit to your job. To tell you the truth even if the decision went the other way I WILL NEVER GIVE UP MY RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY JOB!!!! I will allways carry a firearm no matter what johnny law says. FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS!!!!!

I agree with the right to carry arms for self defence and I have a licence to do so. BUT. It not a right to carry and intimidate!I read all the time on road rage neighbors shooting neighbors(Last week in B/A).Maybe as well as a federal backgroung check we need to inforce some kind of mentail evaluation! You see rednecks like Charlie (Above)Say."Lets pass the open carry."Why? Whats up Chuck? You want to carry a side arm so you can show the world how tough you are with your six hunderd dollar Glock on your hip? Just a brothers oppinion CHUUCH!

I lived in Arizona where they have an open carry law. I loved it I was 19 just married. I had taken a class, gotten my background check, and bought my gun. It was awesome. It layed on my passenger seat in my car when I went any where. Guess what did you know you are less likely to get car jack when someone comes up to your car and can see your gun. Did you know you are less likely to get raped when they can see that you have a gun in a holster. Even with open carry law the bad guys don't where them because they don't want you to know they have them. They are cowards. To say we don't need it is like saying noone whould have one than all the violance will go away. NO IT WON"T. I will protect my family and teach my children to do the same.

I can't believe it is so hard to just secure our basic rights, but we did win.

Open carry will hopefully follow soon.

I e/m the committee and asked them to bring it to a vote... I think that today is the deadline to let it proceed or it is killed.

If open carry passes it will just make more businesses put up gun busting signs. You still won't be able to carry in them.
