Recently, Senator Nathan Dahm pre-filed constitutional carry legislation, Senate Bill 12 for the 2019 Legislative Session. This legislation was passed during the 2018 Legislative Session with overwhelming approval and placed on the desk of Governor Mary Fallin. Governor Fallin then broke her campaign pledge and vetoed this important self-defense legislation.
Senate Bill 12, would recognize the rights of a law-abiding Oklahoma residents’ unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses. Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Accordingly, law-abiding adults’ right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.
Governor-Elect Kevin Stitt has promised to sign this important self-defense legislation when it makes it to his desk in 2019. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support Senate Bill 12 when it comes up for a vote in the 2019 Legislative Session.
