Oklahoma: NRA-Backed Bills Continue to Move through the Legislative Process

Friday, April 1, 2011

The Oklahoma Legislature continues their work on several pro-gun bills, including the “Firearm Owner Privacy Protection Act”, the “Parking Lot/Worker Protection” expansion bill, and open carry legislation. These bills have been assigned to committee, but have not yet received a hearing.

Senate Bill 858, the NRA-backed “Firearm Owner Privacy Protection Act,” is authored by state Senator Steve Russell (R-45). The “Firearm Owner Privacy Protection Act” would prohibit medical practitioners from requiring patients to divulge information about private firearm ownership. SB 858 would also prevent healthcare practitioners from denying healthcare to patients who refuse to disclose such information about firearms, ammunition or storage methods.

SB 858 is sponsored in the House by state Representative Mike Ritze (R-80). The bill has been assigned to the House Public Safety Committee.

NRA-backed House Bill 1652 is a “Parking Lot/Worker Protection” expansion bill. The bill would allow concealed carry permit holders to lock their firearms in their vehicles on technology center campuses, as well as parking lots set aside for use by a governmental entity and professional sporting events. HB 1652 passed overwhelmingly in the House of Representatives and has been assigned to the Senate Public Safety Committee.

HB 1652 is authored by state Representative John Enns (R-41) and is sponsored by Senator Steve Russell.

Senate Bill 129, again authored by Senator Steve Russell, would allow the “open carry” of firearms in locations that allow the carrying of concealed firearms. SB 129 passed in the Senate and has been assigned to the House Public Safety Committee. It is sponsored in the House by state Representative Leslie Osborn (HD-47) and is currently undergoing legislative work.

NRA supports good legislation that seeks to expand the firearm rights of law-abiding gun owners. Oklahoma currently has complex, varying layers of requirements and restrictions for carrying firearms that should be changed in the long-run.

Your NRA will continue to inform and update you about these and other bills throughout this legislative session. So please continue to check your e-mail and www.NRAILA.org for updates.
