Oklahoma: Governor Signs Self-Defense Legislation into Law

On Saturday, Governor Mary Fallin signed important pro-gun legislation, Senate Bill 397, into law. 

SB 397 will end Oklahoma’s unreasonable 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 able to carry a firearm for self-defense.  SB 397 will remove that prohibition and allow those with a valid handgun permit to carry a firearm on public buses.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters for contacting your legislators in support of this important self-defense legislation.  Also, thank you to those legislators who supported Senate Bill 397 throughout the legislative process.  Special thanks to Governor Fallin for signing this measure into law.​
