    These folks are a lobby group in Oklahoma that is spearheading the protection of our shooting rights.
    They are in the forefront of lobbying way in front of any other organization.
    I've recently joined and encourage others to do so as well.
    Here is their latest news letter that spells out what they have done just recently.
    I'm so impressed that we've included them as recipients of sponsorsorship at our Ponca City Rifle and Pistol Club.
    Just this last week, this is what they have accomplished.

    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE!!!
    NINE... *OK2A Active Liberty and Private Property Rights Bills that advanced this week. 4-12-2018
    In the midst of absolute chaos with deafening noise levels and when mobile phones can’t receive an email, text or calls and WIFI is dead because the volume of teachers in the state capitol is over loaded, which provided an incredible challenge this week to get to meetings and floor votes but OK2A PREVAILED advancing the return of your rights in the anti-liberty climate by advancing NINE bills this week through the legislative process!!
    The following House bills are in the senate for consideration.
    *CCR SB615 Dahm/S Roberts Passed Senate 34-8 Even with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife using public dollars to pay lobbyist to defeat your rights. The bill allows the private property owner to remove feral swine day or night without permission from the government.
    *HB2632 By Babinec /Bergstrom Places of Worship immunity broaden. Passed Senate 42-1 Goes back to the House for a vote since the bill was amended. Then it goes to the Governors desk.
    *HB2527 by Cleveland/Dahm Employee Courthouse carry Passed Senate PSC 6-0. The bill was amended today to clarify Sherriff’s would provide approval for employees to carry in a courthouse. It also provides County Commissioners can approve carry in courthouse annex for certain personnel.Now it is on to the Senate floor for a vote then the Governors desk.
    *HB3353 by S Roberts/Dahm Clarifies language for carry during scouting, hunting or fishing on wildlife management areas. Passed 10-0 To Senate Floor. Then to Governors desk.
    HB2889 by Taylor/Scott Clarifies Language Sheriffs can lower SDA application fee.. Passed 8-0 Senate Public Safety Committee. Not requested by OK2A but supported.
    *HB2625 by K West/Bergstrom Changes “Anywhere” language to “Throughout the state.” Clarifying language to protect Oklahomans 4th Amendment right. PASSED 10-0 Rules Title Stricken. To the Senate floor and then to the Governors desk.
    *HB2626 K West/Sykes Senate Jud Passed 6-2 Prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
    The following Senate bills are in the House for consideration.
    *SB910 by Dahm/S Roberts Clarify language carry while scouting, hunting or fishing. Passed House General Government Committee 6-1.
    *SB1212 Dahm/S Roberts Clarifying language a person can carry under the SDA on a wildlife management area. Passed House General Government Committee 6-1.
    Other bills:
    SB1024 By Bice/ Kannady Permanent Resident can apply for an SDA License.
    Last Saturday, several dozen Second Amendment supporters made it to a Lawton Town Hall Meeting in support of State Representative Jeff Coody. Anti-liberty proponents thought they would ambush the constitutional conservative with biased questions but his character and honesty prevailed. We thank Representatives and candidates for participating in in the forum.

    Great work. But still a lot of work to be done. Still bewildered why we dont have Campus or Constitutional carry yet, in one of the top 3 red states.

    They didn't have David Boren. He had a HUGE influence in those decisions.
    Don't know much about the new guy other than he is also anti gun on campus, but he may not have as much stroke.

    What's happened with HB 2951 the constitutional carry law? It was making great progress until the teachers invaded the capital and now it seems to have died.
