Tomorrow, November 1, the pro-gun reforms contained in NRA-Supported Senate Bill 1743 and Senate Bill 1733 will take effect. As you may recall, Senate Bill 1743 is known as the “Landowner’s Hunting Freedom Act,” and allows Oklahoma landowners and their guests to use lawfully possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting. Also, previously reported on here, Senate Bill 1733 is an omnibus firearm bill containing significant improvements to Oklahoma gun laws, including allowing concealed carry permit holders the choice of open carrying. Both of these important bills received strong support in the state Legislature this past session, and were signed by Governor Mary Fallin in May 2012.
The NRA-ILA would like to congratulate the Sooner State on this significant advancement of our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage, and thank our dedicated NRA members who took an active role in this process by contacting state legislators and Governor Mary Fallin to encourage their support.
