OK2A:  Action Alert - Time to Support Constitutional Carry - Make Calls Today!

It’s time to call your legislators and politely ask them to support and coauthor SB1212. There is a ton of opposition to this bill. Countless companies and organizations have used their public influence to attempt to persuade people to contact Oklahoma representatives and law makers to say NO to SB1212.
