Lawmaker Praises Passage of Firearm Bills
OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Josh Cockroft praised the House Public Safety Committee today on the passage of four firearm bills.
“I supported all four bills and was pleased to see enough support for their committee passage,” said Cockroft, R-McLoud. “I will always vote to uphold Second Amendment rights.”
House Bill 1796 would give Oklahomans the opportunity to vote on whether or not people with a valid handgun license would be able to carry that handgun openly.
House Bill 1652 would allow Oklahomans with a valid handgun license to store a weapon in their vehicle on technology center property.
House Bill 2087 would allow college faculty members with a valid handgun license to bring a firearm onto campus.
House Bill 1255 would give U.S. attorneys the right to carry protection with them anywhere in Oklahoma.
“Americans have a constitutional right to bear firearms, which allows them to defend themselves and their families,” Cockroft said. “Without this right, the criminals are the only ones with guns.”
