Oklahoma governor signs handgun bill, 7 others

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Legislation that authorizes persons with concealed handgun licenses to store their handgun in a locked vehicle on school parking lots has been signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin.

The bill is among eight bills that Fallin signed into law Friday.

Handguns had been prohibited inside public and private schools as well as school parking lots. The measure by Rep. Steve Martin of Bartlesville allows a person with a concealed handgun permit to leave the weapon in a locked vehicle in school parking lots provided the handgun is hidden from view when left unattended. Handguns would still be prohibited from schools.

The measure also reduces violations of the handgun regulations from a felony to a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $250.
