Applying for an Oklahoma gun license just got easier. The OSBI has launched the Self-Defense Act (SDA) License On-Line Application system. The system allows users to submit applications to apply for or renew a handgun license. The online application can be accessed on the OSBI website at www.ok.gov/osbi.
Last year, more than 60,000 Oklahomans applied for a gun license. To deal with the enormous influx of applications, OSBI hired more temporary and full-time staff for the unit and added a night shift. The on-line application will expedite and streamline the process.
The online service is a product of a partnership between the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Website managed by the eGovernment firm, NIC Inc. (Nasdaq: EGOV). The actual launch date of the on-line application system was January 14, 2014.
