Oklahoma: Pro-Gun Bill Approaching Committee Deadline <br/> and Needs Your Help!

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Next week completes the deadline for bills to pass out of committee if they hope to continue moving in this legislative session.

House Bill 1652, authored by state Representative John Enns (R-41), would expand opportunities for lawful concealed carry by Oklahoma permit holders by deleting technology centers from the list of prohibited places. This bill would also expand “parking lot” protections for firearms legally stored and locked in vehicles in parking lots set aside for use by a governmental authority or for professional sporting events.

HB 1652 is currently in the House Public Safety Committee, but has not yet received a hearing. While it may be heard next Wednesday morning, March 2, it has not been scheduled yet. HB 1652 will not be able to move forward if it does not pass out of committee by next week’s deadline.

Please contact the members of the Public Safety Committee today and urge their action on HB 1652. Also, please ask Chairman Sue Tibbs and the committee members to give the bill a hearing and their affirmative vote.
