Oklahomans Can Now Use Suppressors For Hunting

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday signed into law House Bill 2637, an important piece of pro-hunting legislation that was passed by a vote of 82-10 in the House, and 40-6 in the Senate.

In recent years, the use of suppressors has seen significant growth as more shooters and sportsmen learn of their benefits. HB 2637 revises Oklahoma law and allows Oklahomans the freedom to hunt with suppressors on both public and private land. Previously, it was only legal for Oklahomans to hunt with a suppressor as long as they were on private property with permission from the landowner.

NRA-ILA thanks those legislators who supported the measure, as well as the NRA members and other Second Amendment supporters who contacted their legislators about the bill. The measure took effect immediately upon signing.
