This week, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed multiple pro-gun bills, including House Bill 1721, House Bill 2323, and House Bill 2322. These bills will now be sent over to the Senate where they will receive committee referrals for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to support House Bills 1721, 2323, and 2322.
House Bill 1721, sponsored by state Representative Greg Babinec, would end Oklahoma’s unreasonable prohibition on the carry of firearms on public buses. Current law discriminates against those who choose to use public transportation to travel and prohibits them from being to carry a firearm for self-defense. HB 1721 would remove that prohibition and allow those with a valid handgun permit to carry a firearm on public buses.
House Bill 2323, sponsored by state Representative Jeff Coody, would allow anyone who is 21 years of age or older to carry a pistol in a vehicle without the requirement of having to obtain a handgun license.
House Bill 2322, sponsored by state Representative Jeff Coody, provides positive reforms to Oklahoma’s current state preemption laws and makes technical changes to better clarify the intent of the law.
Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to support House Bill 1721, House Bill 2323, and House Bill 2322 when they come up for a vote.
