The penalty for carrying a fiream into an establishment that sells alcohol as their primary business is a felony with up to 2 years in prison. 21 O.S. 1272.1

“No Weapons” signs are not mentioned in Oklahoma gun laws. There are no legal penalties for entering a private property or business that has posted these signs.

GunsToCarry recommends that you do not enter a property displaying a “No Weapons” sign whether the law is for or against signage. If asked to leave a property and you refuse to do so then you are breaking the law and put yourself at risk of being charged. 21 O.S. 1290.22 – Business owners rights
