The person in possession of a handgun must identify to a Law Enforcement Officer during an arrest, detainment or routine traffic stop that they are in possession of the handgun. – NO CHANGE from the current licensing law.

The state issued Self Defense Handgun License program remains in place for persons that still wish to obtain a license for reciprocity with other states.

The bill also provides Law Enforcement Agencies to allow officers the ability to use personal long guns to carry while on the job, with the Agency’s permission.

Currently, there are 13 Constitutional Carry states that Oklahoma recognizes for constitutional carry reciprocity. That’s 25% of the states in the United States. Where is all the crime in these states? When a resident of one of those states comes to Oklahoma, the person can legally carry in Oklahoma without permission from the Oklahoma government, under current Oklahoma law. SB1212 extends that same right to Oklahoma residents, without paying a TAX to exercise a Constitutional right.

 

It’s NOT a Controversial Gun bill, it’s a CONSTITUTIONAL Gun bill. Your YES vote on SB1212 reaffirms your Oath of Office and restores a Constitutional Right to your constituents and to the citizens of the State of Oklahoma.

This is a pro-poor, pro-minority, pro-women’s rights bill. (Domestic Abuse/ VPO’s) After a FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK to purchase a firearm, it would eliminate the cost and time for fingerprinting, which is NOT a Federal requirement to purchase a firearm, in addition to lengthy SDA license processing delays (2-3 months or longer) in order to lawfully carry for self-defense. Note: “Point, don’t shoot” law (SB40, Nov. 1, 2017) could/ would assist SB1212 in non-lethal actions of self-defense with a firearm to de-fuse a deadly encounter.

This bill is the equivalent of the ‘Poll Tax’, which was unconstitutional and repealed because it was discriminatory.

Local Civic and Government agencies are not “We the People”. One designated ‘spokesperson’ does not represent the true, or majority, opinion of those in the agency. They use taxpayer dollars to work against taxpayers rights.

This law addresses the ‘Ability’ to carry a firearm, not the ‘Applications’ of carrying a firearm. The ‘Applications’ of carrying a firearm DO NOT CHANGE with a YES vote on SB1212.

CRIMINALS have not and will not submit to a FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK to acquire a firearm.

CRIMINALS have not and will not submit to a Government-mandated licensing requirement to carry a firearm.

CRIMINALS have not and will not submit to a Government-mandated training course to handle and carry a firearm.

CRIMINALS do not obey laws. Law-abiding citizens are the ones who obey laws.

The current SDA law only prohibits law-abiding citizens from defending themselves, unless they have the money to purchase the right of self-defense.

“…Shall Not Be Infringed.”
