Oklahoma: Suppressor Bill to be Considered on House Floor Tomorrow

As previously reported, the House Wildlife Committee unanimously passed House Bill 2637.  HB 2637 would make it legal for Oklahomans to hunt with a suppressor on both public and private land.  HB 2637 is up for consideration by the full House of Representatives tomorrow.  Please contact your state Representative TODAY and politely urge him or her to support House Bill 2637.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative!

Under current Oklahoma law, it is only legal for Oklahomans to hunt with a suppressor as long as they are on private property with permission from the landowner.  In recent years, the use of suppressors has seen significant growth as more shooters and sportsmen learn of their benefits.  HB 2637 would revise current law and allow Oklahomans the freedom to hunt with suppressors on both public and private land.

Sound suppressors attached to firearms are an additional tool available to help protect the shooter’s hearing, reduce noise complaints by surrounding residents, as well as increase accuracy and safety.  They should not be restricted to use only on private land.  Once again, please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to support HB 2637.
