    It would be great if they went over her head and over rode the veto. they have more than 60% with the 33 to 9 in the Senate and the 59 to 28 in the house.

    I believe they need 75% to override

    This is not necessarily the worst news ever. Getting permitless carry, would then mean that more off limits would (very likely) not be removed. But failing to get permitless carry passed, would now allow Oklahoma gun rights groups to refocus on getting more off limits areas removed. Once that is done as far as they think possible, then they can go back for permitless carry. This is after all, what GeorgiaCarry.org considers a wise policy here: Get the remaining off limits areas removed, ie, church carry, clean college campus carry, K-12 carry, etc., and THEN...go for permitless carry.

    The Republican governor announced her veto of the measure Tuesday. ... A veto override would take a two-thirds majority in each chamber.

    It would only take 58 in the State House and 28 in the State Senate to over ride the veto in Oklahoma. They have the votes. both houses have already over rode the Must Sign NFA House Bill 2461 which was also vetoed on Tuesday.

    That's the way I see it too. Things are rarely as simple and cut & dried as they first seem on the surface.

    And then there's that pesky little detail about people who ought not be carrying guns, having it illegal for them to carry guns. Not that it keeps them from doing so, but it's one more charge to hit them with when they do get busted.

    Sure, in a dream world, we aren't required to get permission from the government for what we see as a "god-given" right. But this ain't a dream world.

    Override is extremely unlikely.

    This. They have adjourned for the session. Election season is getting in full swing and the current governor will be out on her ass at the end of her term (term limits). This (among other BS things the governor has done) coupled with the teacher fiasco is going to result in a *very* conservative Congress and governor this time next year... so that I am happy about. :)
