COFFEE COMMENDS PASSAGE OF VICTIM’S PROTECTION LEGISLATION

Senate President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee praised the passage of Senate Bill 932, which creates the Victims Rights to Protection Task Force.

The purpose of the task force is to study the needs and ability of victims to lawfully defend against harmful conduct and the right to self protection. One main objective during the study will be to determine the merit of allowing those who have sought protection from an emergency Victim’s Protective Order (VPO) to obtain an emergency concealed carry license for their protection.

“Victims seeking protection from their attackers can often feel threatened and insecure even with a VPO on file,” said Coffee. “This task force will study ways to provide victims with more of a measure of security as the legal process plays out. I encourage the Governor to sign this legislation that will work to strengthen the public safety of Oklahomans.”

Senate Bill 932 will now go to the Governor’s desk for his consideration and signature.
