The House Democratic Caucus today at a press conference announced a series of responsible public-safety measures meant to prevent gun violence.

The Stand Against Violence and Extremism Act repeals existing laws deregulating gun use in Oklahoma. In addition, the SAVE Act institutes popular, bipartisan solutions to gun violence.

The act would

  • Repeal Anti Red Flag Law SB1081
  • Repeal Permitless Carry HB2597
  • Repeal Conceal Carry in Zoos, Public Parks HB2010
  • New Statewide Red Flag Law
  • New Waiting Period Law New Legislation to Raise Minimum Purchase Age to 21

    The lawmakers encourage Oklahomans, especially the media, to continue to ask community members if they support Oklahoma’s lack of regulation on firearms.

    The minority caucus members pointed to support for their ideas from both Republicans and Democrats.

    “Donald Trump supported Red Flag Laws when he was president,” Monroe Nichols, D-Tulsa said. “The solutions we are presenting are not ‘liberal’ ideas. They are common-sense, life-saving ideas. If a lawmaker doesn’t support the SAVE Act, I hope they are asked what their plan is to protect school children and public spaces.”
