Last week the Senate passed HB 2615, the “Stand your Ground” legislation with a vote of 39-5, sending HB 2615 back to the House for concurrence. On May 4, the House concurred with a vote of 83 to 4. This critical legislation sponsored by Representative Kevin Calvey (R-94), recognizes the citizens of Oklahoma have the right to expect absolute safety in a place he or she has a right to be.
HB 2615 now heads to Governor Brad Henry (D) for his expected signature.
Please call Governor Henry at (405) 521-2342 and respectfully ask him to sign HB 2615.
