Oklahoma Senate Conference Committee to Vote on Parking Lot Expansion Bill!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Please Contact State Senators on the Conference Committee Today! 

Yesterday, the House Conference Committee on Public Safety, Judiciary and Military Affairs passed House Bill 1652, the “Parking Lot/Employee Protection” expansion bill, by a 7 to 0 vote. This measure must now face approval by the Senate conference committee before it can receive a full floor vote by either chamber.

House Bill 1652 would allow concealed carry permit holders to store their firearms in their locked private vehicles on technology center campuses, as well as in parking lots set aside for use by governmental entities and professional sporting events. HB 1652 is authored by state Representative John Enns (R-41) in the House and by state Senators Steve Russell (R-45) and Anthony Sykes (R-24) in the Senate. 

Your state legislators are under heavy pressure from anti-gun opponents and higher education lobbyists who are trying to kill or weaken this bill.  NRA members must make their voices heard to counter this bill’s opposition!

Please contact members of the Senate conference committee TODAY to respectfully urge their support of HB 1652.
