What if I have an active warrant?

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:

  1. You have fled the state
  2. for the purpose of avoiding prosecution or to avoid giving testimony, and 
  3. 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).
