Yes. It must be unloaded. It must remain in plain view or be enclosed in a case that is in plain view.

section "open" means the firearm is transported
in plain view, in a case designed for carrying
firearms, which case is wholly or partially visible,
in a gun rack mounted in the vehicle, in an
exterior locked compartment or a trunk of a
vehicle.
Any person, except a convicted felon, may
transport in a motor vehicle a rifle or shotgun
concealed behind a seat of the vehicle or within
the interior of the vehicle provided the rifle or
shotgun is not clip, magazine or chamber
loaded. The authority to transport a clip or magazine
loaded rifle or shotgun shall be pursuant to
Section 1289.13 of this title.
Any person who is the operator of a vehicle or
is a passenger in any vehicle wherein another
person who is licensed pursuant to the Oklahoma
Self-Defense Act, Sections 1290.1 through
1290.25 of Title 21 of the Oklahoma Statutes, to
carry a concealed handgun and is carrying a
concealed handgun or has concealed the handgun

of the provisions of this section provided
the licensee is in or near the vehicle.
1289.7a. Transporting or storing firearms in

A. No person, property owner, tenant,

the effect of prohibiting any person, except a

transporting and storing firearms locked in or
locked to a motor vehicle on any property set
aside for any motor vehicle.
B. No person, property owner, tenant,
employer, or business entity shall be liable in
any civil action for occurrences which result from
the storing of firearms in a locked motor vehicle
on any property set aside for any motor vehicle,
unless the person, property owner, tenant,
employer, or owner of the business entity
commits a criminal act involving the use of the
firearms. The provisions of this subsection shall
not apply to claims pursuant to the Workers'
Compensation Act.
C. An individual may bring a civil action to
enforce this section. If a plaintiff prevails in a civil
action related to the personnel manual against a
person, property owner, tenant, employer or
business for a violation of this section, the court
shall award actual damages, enjoin further
violations of this section, and award court costs
and attorney fees to the prevailing plaintiff.
