Oklahoma: Hunting with Suppressors Legislation Signed into Law

Yesterday, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed House Bill 2637 into law and it goes into effect immediately.  This important pro-hunting legislation was passed in the House by an 82-10 vote and then in the Senate by a 40-6 vote. 

In recent years, the use of suppressors has seen significant growth as more shooters and sportsmen learn of their benefits.  HB 2637 revises Oklahoma law and allows Oklahomans the freedom to hunt with suppressors on both public and private land. Previously, it was only legal for Oklahomans to hunt with a suppressor as long as they were on private property with permission from the landowner.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their lawmakers in support of House Bill 2637. Also, thank you to those legislators who supported this pro-gun legislation.
