Oklahoma: Your Help Needed - Pro-Gun Bills Moving in Legislature

Tomorrow, the Oklahoma Senate is scheduled to consider House Joint Resolution 1009 and your state Senator needs to hear from you.  Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT HJR 1009 with no weakening amendments when it comes up for a vote.


House Joint Resolution 1009 makes a critical improvement to the current Right to Keep and Bear Arms Amendment in Oklahoma’s constitution.  This is a measure that provides the strongest possible protection for your gun rights, guaranteeing in the state constitution your Right to Keep and Bear Arms against any infringements or restrictions for you and future generations of Oklahomans.  All proposed restrictions to any of your fundamental rights should be subject to a standard that ensures the strongest possible protection for that right, especially your Second Amendment rights.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT HJR 1009 with no weakening amendments when it comes up for a vote.

Yesterday, the Senate passed House Bill 2637 by a 40-6 vote.  This important legislation will now be sent to Governor Mary Fallin where it will await her consideration.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact Governor Fallin and politely urge her to sign House Bill 2637 into law.


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.
