Senator Jerry Ellis (D – Valliant) wants to do away with all of Oklahoma’s concealed carry reciprocity agreements with other states, in effect, disarming Oklahoma CCL holders when they travel out of state. Senate Bill 1556 would nullify all other states’ concealed carry licenses in Oklahoma, which would then cause other states to no longer recognize Oklahoma’s CCL. This is a ridiculous bill and a huge step backward for the freedoms of Oklahomans.
Even though the 2012 Legislative Session will not begin for another 10 days, it is not too early to call Senator Ellis’ office and ask him to withdraw this terrible bill. You can reach Senator Ellis at (405) 521-5614.
