Oklahoma: A Fresh Session, a Fresh Set of Firearm Legislation!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

This week, the Oklahoma State Legislature completed its second full week of the new legislative session. There are a number of pro-gun bills that have been introduced in the legislature, and your NRA will keep you updated on the advancement of these bills:

House Bill 1439, authored by state Representative Steve Vaughan (R-37), would expand the right of owners, managers or employees of a business to use force, including deadly force, in self-defense against an attacker. 

House Bill 1553, authored by state Representative Sally Kern (R-84), would strike prohibitions against concealed carry licensees in structures, buildings or offices owned or leased by a city, town, county or the state. This bill would also strike prohibitions against carrying in public meetings of elected or appointed officials.

Senate Bill 15, authored by state Senator Josh Brecheen (R-6), would repeal the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)-backed Commercial Pet Breeders Act, which limits the number of intact pets and animals that may be owned and sold or bred.

Senate Bill 128, authored by state Senator Mike Schulz (R-38), would amend the HSUS-backed Commercial Pet Breeders Act to exclude hunting, racing and working dogs from the limitations of the Act.

There are a number of bills introduced to extend the places and manner in which carry permit holders would be allowed to carry firearms, including on vocational-technical campuses, other college campuses and deleting the requirement that firearms remain concealed when carried on or about the permit holder’s body.

House Bill 2126, authored by state Representative Jeff Hickman (R-58), would allow carry permit holders to carry concealed firearms on the campuses of technology centers, with the permission of centers’ administrators.

Senate Bill 856, authored by state Senator Steve Russell (R-45), would allow for the lawful carrying of a firearm that is wholly or partially visible.

Senate Bill 858, also authored by state Senator Steve Russell (R-45), would allow carry permit holders to carry concealed firearms on college or university property. 

Your NRA will continue to inform and update you about these and many other billsthroughout this legislative session!
