The importance of cultivating highly skilled workers in the firearm industry cannot be overstated, and the Gunsmithing Technology Program at Murray State College plays a pivotal role in achieving this goal. By continuing to invest in these programs, Oklahoma sets itself apart from other states and demonstrates its commitment to fostering economic development initiatives within our great state, for the firearm industry. A vibrant firearm industry is crucial to being able to exercise our rights.
As supporters of the Second Amendment and champions of our constitutional rights, we can proudly celebrate the achievements of this session. Our dedication to upholding the values of freedom and responsibility has resulted in positive strides for the firearm industry and the promotion of safety within our communities.
NRA thanks the legislators who played a role in making these accomplishments possible. Governor Stitt anticipated he will sign this into law. We applaud their commitment to protecting our rights and advancing the cause.
