Action Alert: HJR1026 To Be Heard This Week

After a week of consultations with House leadership, HJR1026 is set to go to the House floor for a vote in the next couple of days.  There were some final tweaks made to the language, but the finished product was worth the work.  The current text that will be amended on the floor of the House is as follows:

§ 26.  Keeping and bearing of arms – Fundamental status – Specific regulations

A.     The fundamental right of each individual citizen to keep and to bear (that is, to carry) arms, including handguns, rifles, shotguns, knives, nonlethal defensive weapons and other arms in common use, as well as ammunition and the components of arms and ammunition, for security, self-defense, lawful hunting and recreation, in aid of the civil power when thereunto lawfully summoned, or for any other legitimate purpose shall not be infringed.  Any regulation of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.

B.     This section shall not prevent the Legislature from prohibiting the possession of arms by convicted felons, those adjudicated as mentally incompetent, or those who have been involuntarily committed in any mental institution.

C.     No law shall impose registration or special taxation upon the keeping of arms, including the acquisition, ownership, possession, or transfer of arms, ammunition, or the components of arms or ammunition.

Please call or send an email to House members asking them to support HJR1026 when it comes to the floor.  The House switchboard number is (800) 522-8502.  If you are unsure who your State Representative is, go to and put your address in the form on the bottom right of the website and it will give you that information.  The following is a block of email addresses for all House members.  You may want to break it up into four sections to keep your email provider from blocking it as spam (thanks to Oklahoma Freedom Action Alerts for the email blocks):,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
