Despite objections from the director of the CareerTech system, Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill Wednesday that allows students, teachers, and visitors with a valid concealed-carry permit to store a handgun in their vehicles on the technology center’s parking lots.

House Bill 1652 takes effect Nov. 1.

The provisions in the bill are similar to existing law covering colleges and universities.

Gun owners who have concealed-carry permits must leave their handguns secured in their vehicles on college and university parking lots; written permission from the college or university president is required for the gun owner to carry the gun on campus.

A CareerTech administrator would have to give similar written permission before the gun owner could carry the gun on other parts of the campus.
