Today at 4:00pm, is the deadline for Conference Committee members to sign out House Joint Resolution 1009 and House Bill 3098. Please IMMEDIATELY contact members of the Conference Committees and politely urge them to sign HJR 1009 and HB 3098 out of conference committee.
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. The courts have currently held that there is no such right in the Oklahoma Constitution leaving it to the whims of politicians and unelected bureaucrats!
House Bill 3098 would allow a law-abiding citizen to open carry a firearm on their person without the fees associated with obtaining a carry permit. HB 3098 does nothing to change the current permitting process in the state of Oklahoma for those individuals who still prefer to conceal carry a firearm and receive reciprocity in other states.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact members of the Conference Committee on HB 3098 and HJR 1009 and politely urge them to sign these bills out of conference committee.
