Will Fear or Facts Decide Hunting Policy in Oklahoma?
After receiving overwhelming approval in the Senate by a 40 to 3 vote, Senate Bill1743 has come under attack from some state game wardens, and needs your help to pass in the House Agriculture, Wildlife and Environment Committee. Known as the “Landowner's Hunting Freedom Act,” this important pro-hunting legislation would allow Oklahoma landowners and their guests to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting. Some state game wardens are taking a page out of the anti-gunners’ playbook, spreading false and unfounded concerns to derail this common sense reform. Opposing game wardens are pressuring Committee members to oppose the bill. It is important that you contact Committee members TODAY, urging them to base their legislative decisions on fact and not fear.
