Oklahoma: Committee Passes Permitless Carry Legislation to the House Floor

Yesterday, the Oklahoma House Public Safety Committee passed permitless carry legislation, House Bill 2951.  This important self-defense legislation now heads to the House floor where it will await full consideration.  Please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 2951.

Sponsored by state Representative Jeff Coody, HB 2951 recognizes the right of Oklahomans to carry a firearm for self-defense without having to get government permission to do so.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  The CWP will still be available for those who wish to take advantage of reciprocity agreements when traveling to other states.

Again, please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 2951.
