Oklahoma: Two Important Pro-Gun Bills Stalled In Committee

posted on May 13, 2016

Two bills that would substantially strengthen Second Amendment rights in the Sooner State—HJR 1009 and HB 3098—are currently on hold in conference committees.

HJR 1009 would add to the November ballot a state constitutional amendment that would ensure state regulations to residents’ firearm freedoms are subject to strict scrutiny, and prevent passage of laws requiring gun registration or firearms taxation. The measure—which passed the House with a 66-7 vote—is now in the House Conference Committee on Rules, and committee members are under heavy pressure from gun-control groups to reject this legislation. 

HB 3098—which passed the House 73-15—is sitting in a Senate Conference committee. It would allow law-abiding citizens to openly carry a firearm without the fees associated with obtaining a carry permit, but would leave unchanged the process for obtaining a concealed-carry permit.
