Oklahoma: House Committee to Consider Constitutional Carry Legislation

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, February 7, the House Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider constitutional carry legislation, House Bill 2597. 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. Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to SUPPORT HB 2597.

House Bill 2597, would recognize the right of law-abiding Oklahoma residents 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. Again, please contact members of the House Public Safety Committee and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 2597.

    1. We thought it was a wrap for Fallen, too. I am in the “wait and see” mode. We have a bunch of new folks in both state houses of legislation this term, many are female teachers. I’d not bet on an easy time getting majorities again like we had last term when Fallen sold us out.

      Hopefully it will reach Stitt’s desk and he will sign it.

    2. It takes a lot of time for good legislation to be passed but bad legislation will fly through in no time. Cograds Oklahoma.

    3. This is too easy and shoulda been signed by Gov Fallon before. Gov Stitt had better follow thru.
      Shame we have to jump thru hoops to get the 2A

    4. Its pretty well already a go for law abiding citizens to be able to carry without a permit. Just a matter of time. In this state we do not have to worry about restrictions of the 2nd amendment. Though not required, it is advisable to be well versed in concealed carry and knowing how to operate you firearm.

      1. I’m for Constitutional Carry, however, I think some sort of testing should be done to make sure those who have a firearm know how and when to use it, and I feel certain some sort of requirement will be added. However. from what I’ve seen many of those who have a concealed carry permit shouldn’t have one so it won’t change anything except one’s ability to defend themselves. Advocates of the current licensed carry have the misconstrued idea that it will protect them from a civil suit. Let me assure you if anyone wants to sue you for any reason they can. It may be thrown out of court later but you will have to defend it first. This means attorney fees and possible court costs. I also feel certain that Oklahoma will figure out a way to make money if the current proposal is passed today. Also the required FBI and OSBI Criminal Background checks to buy a firearm will still be in place.
