Sen. Randy Brogdon
Senate Approves Oklahoma Firearms
State Sen. Randy Brogdon has won Senate approval for
the Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act. The measure passed with overwhelming
bipartisan support—a vote Brogdon says mirrors the values
of most Oklahomans. The Senate approved Senate Bill 1685 on Wednesday
on a vote of 39 to 3.
“As a private citizen and as a state senator, I believe it
is important that we guard against the continued erosion of the
Bill of Rights, including the right to protect ourselves and our
families,” said Brogdon, R-Owasso. “This legislation
reaffirms our Second Amendment rights.”
Under the provisions of Senate Bill 1685, no firearms or ammunition
manufactured in Oklahoma and remaining in the state could be subject
to any federal regulations, including federal registration requirements.
“The benefits of this measure are actually two-fold. The first
goal is protection of our Constitutional rights, but the second
is to give further incentive to firearm manufacturers to consider
Oklahoma for their operations,” Brogdon said.
SB 1685 now moves to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
