Oklahoma House Passes Several Pro-Gun Measures

posted on March 27, 2017

The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed several pro-gun measures last week, all of which now move over to the state Senate for consideration.

House Bill 1721 would end the state’s 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. 

Additionally, House Bill 2323 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. And House Bill 2322 provides positive reforms to Oklahoma’s current state preemption laws and makes technical changes to better clarify the intent of the law.
