Oklahoma: NRA-Backed Omnibus Gun Bill to be Heard in House Committee!

Monday, February 27, 2012

Please Contact Members of the Public Safety Committee to Urge Your Support!

House Bill 2522, authored by state Representative Steve Martin (R-10), is an NRA-backed omnibus firearm bill which would make significant improvements to Oklahoma’s gun laws. This bill is currently scheduled to be heard by the House Public Safety Committee this Wednesday, February 29.

HB 2522 contains several important provisions, including:

1) Language authored by state Representative Jason Murphey (R-31), which would seeks to prohibit persons, property owners and companies from banning ammunition in locked vehicles;

2) A provision by state Representative Lewis Moore (R-96), which would allow people to carry firearms openly on their private property;

3) Revisions to current Oklahoma statute which strike the word “concealed” from Oklahoma firearm permit citations, apply the lawful open carrying of firearms to Oklahoma's firearm preemption law, and remove the ambiguous “immediate notification” requirement for permit holders when stopped by law enforcement officials. The NRA would also like to express our appreciation for state Representative George Faught ( R-14) for introducing language repealing the immediate notification requirement for permit holders in House Bill 2309.

Please contact members of the House Public Safety Committee TODAY to respectfully urge their support of these important improvements.
