K-12 Parking Lot Bill Passes House

Sally Kern’s K-12 parking lot bill, HB2329, passed the House today 76-17.  This bill will allow handgun permit holders to leave their weapon in their locked vehicle while parked in the parking lot of K-12 schools in Oklahoma.  Currently, the only time it is legal for a permit holder to have their weapon on school grounds is if they are picking up or dropping off a student.  This is a much needed update to our state’s gun laws.

Republicans voting against the bill included Representatives Coody, Cooksey, Henke, and Nollan.  Democrats voting against the bill included Representatives Brown, Cannaday, Floyd, Hamilton, Matthews, McDaniel (Curtis), McDaniel (Jeanie), McPeak, Morrissette, Pittman, Shelton, Sherrer, and Virgin.
