OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a new state law could affect people who are applying for gun licenses this year.

The agency said Tuesday that the law going into effect Nov. 1 modifies the state's Self-Defense Act, making certificates expire after three years. Previously, the certificates did not expire.

OSBI says residents who have completed a gun safety training course should begin the application process for a license as soon as possible.

Anyone who completed the training before Nov. 1, 2011, and who hasn't submitted an application by Nov. 1, 2014, will have to re-take the training course and get a new certificate when the new law goes into effect.

The OSBI says nearly 200,000 Oklahomans are licensed to carry a concealed or unconcealed firearm.
