Oklahoma Pepper Spray Law Explanation
Oklahoma law states that it is legal for you to carry a firearm with a concealed carry permit (as long as it’s in the open one is not necessary on a car) as well as personal protection products such as pepper spray or electronic stun guns. If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, it could be a good alternative to having to use a firearm to instead have one of these products with you. These non-lethal products will incapacitate an aggressor or assailant and potentially give you enough time to get help or get to safety.
All across the country, larger cities are becoming more dangerous and the crime rates are rising. The largest cities in Oklahoma, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, are no exception. Unfortunately, many of the smaller places that used to be considered perfectly safe are also becoming less safe. By protecting yourself with pepper spray or a stun gun, you reduce your chances of becoming a victim.
