If you have a warrant out for your arrest you may be a “fugitive from justice” pursuant to federal law and would be ineligible to possess a firearm. If you are federally ineligible to possess a firearm, you will be denied a handgun license pursuant to the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act. You are considered a federal "fugitive from justice" if the following conditions exist:
- You have have fled the state
- for the purpose of avoiding prosecution or to avoid giving testimony, and
- are subject to imminent criminal prosecution or testimonial obligation.
If you are subject to a felony warrant in this state, another state or the United States, your handgun license application will be denied pursuant to Title 21 Oklahoma Statute § 1290.10 (11).
