Oklahoma: House Sends More Pro-Gun Legislation to Senate

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Thanks to your active involvement, three more pro-gun bills passed in the Oklahoma House of Representatives and have been sent to the state Senate for committee assignment and consideration.

Yesterday, House Joint Resolution 1026, sponsored by state Representative Dan Fisher (R-60), passed by an 87 to 7 vote.  HJR 1026 would improve Oklahoma’s constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision by providing the strongest possible protection for your gun rights.

House Bill 2887, sponsored by state Representative John Enns (R-41), also passed yesterday by a 52 to 39 vote.  HB 2887 would allow any college, university or technology center school to establish a general policy to allow carry license holders to carry on campus.  HB 2887 would improve on current law which requires written permission to each individual licensee.

Tuesday, March 11,  House Bill 2461, sponsored by state Representative Mike Turner (R-82), passed by a 92 to 1 vote.  HB 2461 would require that when certification from a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) is a prerequisite by federal law for the transfer of a National Firearms Act (NFA) item -- as defined in the NFA -- such certification must be provided within fifteen days if the applicant is not prohibited by law from receiving the NFA item.  Some CLEOs simply refuse to sign such forms, and nothing in current law prohibits this, even if the applicant’s receipt of the NFA item would not be contrary to law and the CLEO has no information that the applicant intends to use the NFA item for an unlawful purpose.   HB 2461 would prevent an arbitrary personal bias from determining Oklahoma firearm policy and ensure that qualified, law-abiding Oklahomans would not be denied their ability to legally possess NFA items.  The reforms in HB 2461 would benefit law-abiding Oklahoma Second Amendment supporters by ensuring that the process to obtain NFA items already legal in Oklahoma remains consistent, fact-based and objective.

Please contact your state Senator today in support of these three important pro-gun reform bills and call the Senate switchboard at (405) 524-0126 to register your support.  Click here to find your state Senator.
