OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) - A bill that would allow you to carry a firearm without a license and without training passed the Senate Appropriations Committee early Wednesday morning.

The vote was 18-4 in favor of the bill that says if you are over the age of 21 and NOT a convicted felon you are able to carry a firearm.

It also states that if you are over the age of 18 are an active duty member of the military or National Guard or have been honorably discharged you can also carry.

The amendment that is attached leaves in place all of the previous locations you were not able to carry in place, such as businesses and public buildings.

Last year, a similar bill landed on the then Governor Mary Fallin's desk. It was vetoed.

FOX 25 asked Gov. Kevin Stitt on Wednesday if he would sign the bill. He said:

"I haven't looked at entire bill yet, but yes. I was very clear on the campaign trail that I was supportive of constitutional carry. We'll monitor it and make sure there are no changes coming out of the senate but I'm very supportive of second amendment and look forward to signing it."

The bill now heads off to the full senate.
