Last year, SB548 was introduced to protect the 2nd Amendment from federal usurpation. (learn more about it here) It was then referred to the Public Safety Committee where it has lied dormant ever since. The bill is still alive during the 2014 legislative session.
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! It doesn’t matter where in Oklahoma you live, ACT NOW!
1. Call the Committee Chair, Don Barrington. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on SB548. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.
