Oklahoma: Senate Bill 1845 Rescheduled for Hearing Next Week

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Senate Bill 1845, introduced by state Senator Greg Treat (R-47) and coauthored by state Representative Steve Martin (R-10), has been rescheduled by the state Senate Public Safety Committee from tomorrow to next week.  SB 1845 would ensure that Oklahoma law meets the requirements set forth in the federal NICS Improvement Amendments Act (NIAA) of 2007, and would add Oklahoma to the list of nearly half of the states that are NIAA certified.

Currently, those who have been placed under certain types of mental health-related orders are prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms.  The NIAA establishes clear standards for states to use in crafting laws to provide persons subject to these prohibitions a process to seek restoration of their gun rights.  This legislation, under the guidelines established by the NIAA, will allow a court to grant relief from the federal prohibition upon a finding that the petitioner will not be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety and that the granting of the relief would not be contrary to the public interest.  SB 1845 provides a path and process for Oklahomans, including military service members and veterans, to have their gun rights restored.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated as details about the rescheduled Senate committee hearing become known.  In the meantime, please contact the Senate committee members listed below and urge their support for SB 1845.
