Early this week House Bill 2615, the “Stand Your Ground Law,” passed the House Corrections and Criminal Justice Committee. HB 2615, sponsored by Representative Kevin Calvey (R-94), recognizes that the citizens of Oklahoma have the right to expect absolute safety within their own homes.
Also, HB 2696 passed the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee. HB 2696, sponsored by Representative Trebor Worthen (R-87), will eliminate any threat of restrictions being imposed on lawful uses of firearms or ammunition during a state of emergency.
Both bills are expected to be up for first reading in the House as early as next week. Please contact your State Representative at (405) 521-2711 and ask him or her to support HB 2615 and HB 2696.
