Oklahoma State Senator Warren Hamilton filed Senate Bill 631, which aimed to make Oklahoma a Second Amendment Sanctuary State. This means the bill will prevent any future legislation by the federal government from infringing on the Second Amendment rights of Oklahomans.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Act 

Under the Second Amendment Sanctuary State Act, the preemption would include several federal laws. One is the National Firearms Act of 1934, which required the registration of all firearms and imposed a tax on the making and transfer of firearms. Also, the act preempts the Gun Control Act of 1968, which imposed stricter licensing and regulations on the firearms industry. Also, it created new categories of firearms offenses. In addition, the act prohibited the sale of firearms and ammunition to felons.

“SB 631 states that the gun laws as they exist today are as restrictive as they’re ever going to be and that they cannot be added to. No governmental agency has the Constitutional authority to restrict magazines, ammunition, modern sporting rifles, or AR pistols,” said Hamilton. In addition, he said the bill makes it definitive. “This bill is simply a red line that clearly defines the limits of governmental authority regarding our unalienable, God-given, blood-bought, constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms,” he added.

On the Senate Floor

Hamilton, a gun advocate, is a member of several Second Amendment advocacy groups over the years. In fact, he is an active member of the National Rifle Association, the Gun Owners of America, the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association, and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO).  

After clearing the Senate Public Safety Committee, HB 631 now heads to the Senate floor for consideration. Once it receives approval from the Senate and signed into law, it will go into effect immediately. Meanwhile, other states also passed similar legislation. For example, Arkansas, Ohio, and South Carolina state legislatures are also passing sanctuary bills.

Support From 12 Counties

In addition, SB 631 received support from sheriffs of at least 12 counties in Oklahoma. Sheriff Larry Lane has declared Sequoyah County to be a Second Amendment sanctuary, a symbolic gesture already protected by the Constitution.

In particular, Sheriff Larry Lane recently declared Sequoyah County as a Second Amendment sanctuary. In a memo sent to Sequoyah County residents last January, Sheriff Lane said he aims to protect the citizens without infringing on their rights to possess firearms. Meanwhile, Sequoyah joins other counties that are Second Amendment sanctuaries in Oklahoma. These at least 37 other counties in the state.

Dillion’s Rule State

Oklahoma is a Dillion’s Rule State, which means local governments are limited to powers expressly granted to them by the state legislature. Most firearm regulations are drafted and enacted by the Oklahoma statehouse. However, most experts see the move as symbolic. The Second Amendment of the Constitution already protects citizens’ right to bear arms.

In May of last year, Oklahoma became the first state to enact an anti-red flag law. Red flag laws allow for the petition to order the temporary removal of firearms from persons who present a danger.

  • Sherry Pratt says:

  • ROBERT A. ABADIE says:

    HEY LAURIE I AM FROM PA ALSO AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT IT IS ONE STATE THAT IS GUN FRIENDLE RESENT DEALWITH NY STATE WE WERE ABLE TO GET CARRY PERMIT IN NY ALSO

  • Rick says:

    I live in Colorado in an already defined sanctuary county. What these gun grabbers fail to grasp is they only have a voice because of the first amendment. The second amendment is what protects the first. There is no such thing as a gun violence epidemic…gun violence doesn’t exist. You either have acts of violence committed by a living being or you don’t. It’s a matter of choice which is something an inanimate object cannot do. Plus an epidemic generally covers issues of health, which doesn’t cover a criminal using a weapon.
    Sadly I believe that it boils down to an issue aside from gun control. As gun restrictions would make millions of felons overnight. The justice system and the correctional industry stand to profit unbelievably from a scheme such as this. We already have the largest prison population in the world, there are some 10 or more prison facilities in my county alone. Anyway I am sure everyone can see where I’m headed with this. Think about it; it’s not at all far fetched. That’s why gun laws restrict the law abiding and criminals are penalized less and less. Keep that revolving door moving. In and out and back in again, over and over…it’s huge profits. From the prices charged for phone calls to the prices charged for hygeine and commissary of the inmates it’s huge. I bet it rivals the pharmaceutical companies

  • Dan says:

    A brilliant idea. Turn sanctuary status back around and stick it in the libs where the sun don’t shine. My state would never do this. Land of the cowards, home of the locked downs, welcome to “Jelly Belly” J.B. Pritzker state of Ill-annoy.

  • Craig Rizner says:

    I am from Iowa if they come after my guns I am moving to Texas these RINO’s and libs got to go.

  • Jimmy says:

    Todd, I totally feel your pain, I live in a dictatorship state too, Hiel Bucktooth Murphy!! And NJ’s gun restrictions are far & away worse than NY…except maybe in nyc. As for these sanctuary laws, I LOVE IT! Let’s just start using the libs BS to our advantage when & where needed! F*** them!

  • Jeff Taylor says:

    We step on anti-gunners pretty hard here in NH,,

  • Daniel Melton says:

    Are there any others who question why those in political office seek to disarm honest citizens while they precipitate situations that incite armed rebellion?
    There is a reason that they are going after rifles owned by citizens rather than the handguns that are used by criminals.

  • Nanc says says:

    I also live in NJ. Murphy has to get off his butt and set an example for a change. NJ has not one law that protects much of anything. We have a do nothing government. Not taking any gun from me. And if I see a poor dog suffocating to death in an overheated car, I am breaking the glass and save it, no matter that NJ’s law calls it “ unlawful entry” and I would be in trouble. Animal control officers can not do their jobs the way it should be, so many restrictions are placed on them that can not perform what they are professionally trained for. We have a friend who quit because he wanted to investigate a tragic death of a dog. Authorities would not let him proceed. So did it on his own time, solved the crime and justice was served. A great guy. And our townships loss of a dedicated officer for animals. Murphy? Wake up. Get out of your mansion and see what is really going on in your state or don’t you care? Doing a lousy job of handling the Covid vaccines also. One site only. Miles away. Other few sites we are supposed to have have none. Not taking appointments. Our physicians should have it as well as drug pharmacies. And everyone get the vaccine at same time, not these stupid phases. No controlling it this way. People walking around spreading it still waiting for their inoculations. You call that controlling it? Know I got off the original subject, but it has to come out how bad NJ is compared to other well run states.

  • Larry D says:

    Florida is a Gun friendly state so it should also become a Gun Sanctuary state too!
    Lots of law abiding gun owners here in Florida!
    Come on Governor DeSantis get with this program now! What are you waiting for Governor!

  • Dick Goodman says:

    This Message is to Sen. Josh Hawley. Senator Hawley, you stay in enough trouble with the Leftist Nazi Group in D.C.. How about trying to convince our Great Missouri Leaders to pass a bill as Oklahoma is and make the Sho-Me State a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State?

  • Branden Oconnell says:

    Sad all of you people need a gun to feel protected whatever happened to survival of the fittest seems none of these cowards can walk 5 steps with out crying about guns I can’t wait till we go door to door and take all your guns and it’s coming soon thank god for Biden 🤣

  • Scott Carroll says:

    Hats off to Senator Hamilton for introducing the bill and Sheriff Larry Lane for reaffirming the rights granted by our forefathers and the Constitution of the (formerly) United States !!

  • michael brogan says:

    I hope you get shot by an intruder. And if china takes over and overruns our neighborhoods, what will you do?

  • sherril henderson says:

    We should do something to stop the dems and all the nutty other people who thinks it would be better to do away with all them. This country has gone insane they want to justify killing babies and let illegal murderers go free. Its time for the GOD fearing people of this country to stand up to get rid of this BS.

  • Ray Eaton says:

    I live in Illinois. Chicago has the worst gun violence in spite of having the strictest gun control laws in the country. The rest of the state has thousands of peaceful law abiding gun owners. Yet we’re live under the rulings of Chicago. Total insanity.

  • Dave Gerkin says:

    I live in Oregon. Wish it were a second amendment state. Do not know if possible as this is the great state of Kate. All Oregon controlled by Portland.

  • Alvin D. Watters says:

    I live in arkansas we love our guns!

  • David says:

    Braneen backn ith more delusion! Survival of the fittest? Dumbest remark i’ve ever heard. You sound like a young, ignorant, imdoctrinated person that couldn’t concieve of why the Amendments are so important. You utilize the first, which is supported by the second! It’s a matter of rights, and principals, something you clearly don’t understand. Ypu probably believe that it’s about protecting children, while they let violent gun offending criminals out of prison! Your boy Biden is ruining the country. Buying oil from China, liking those gas prices?! Going after retirement at 50%, you habe any eldetly retired people in your family. The 2nd is there to protect us from a tyrannical government, like we have now. Illegal lockdowns for a virus with a 99.7 % survival rate. How about the Bill he signed thst says if you disagree with him it’s incitement! Sound like a communist tyrant yet? Why all the security around the house, for the fake riot that happened? Ask the jews how Hitler disarming them turned out. Sit in your house playing xbox thinking the government will protect you. You really need to broaden your knowledge of history and the constitution, you’re so ignorant, it’s almost painful! I guess some people like racist, antisemitic pedophiles that pillage the wealth out of countries. But hey, if that’s you, go for it, but all of the normal people appreciate the laugh!

  • RJS says:

    @Brandon Occonell, thanks for the laugh LOL 🙂 “thank God for Biden”. People that is what an oxyMORON is. The “sniffer” Joe and the ho don’t know God. Joe is not recognized as a Catholic from the top of the Catholic Clergy to the lowest level of just being a parishioner. Come on Brandon, come and knock on my door! Illinois is the 2nd most corrupt state in the States. The 2nd amendment protects me from the communists ruining my state, people leaving by the thousands and whatever gun control the commies of Illinois say or do doesn’t matter. Guns will keep us God-loving, bible thumpers, safe. No more 300.00 card filings, 20 hours of classes, FOID, and CCL are worthless. Start with the recent event of 400 BLM and Antifa members partying on the riverfront in sanctuary city Peoria Il during a pandemic and rid our society from their trash before you worry about us innocent citizens (what few are left) alone. Whatever the Government says won’t change the fact we will continue to carry weapons for protection and as a side point, life in prison is not a deterrent at my age, LOL.

  • JR says:

    Branden, I wish you would come to my door for my guns. I will be glad to leave them in the house while I come out and use the survival of the fittest to kick your punk, pussy, democratic ass. You all talk big, but only engage when you have big numbers on your side. Match antifa or any of your other groups against any group one on one, you will be decimated. You are the real coward, because you can’t stand up against anybody. Try your door to door, and we shall see who is the fittest.

  • Island Girl says:

    I live in the state of Hawaii. Wish they would make it a 2nd ammendment state. I don’t know if it would ever happen because Hawaii is considered a democratic state. We do a lot of axis deer hunting. There are a lot of residents who are pro guns and is willing to fight for our second ammendment rights.

  • Luther Wallace Dean JR says:

    Usually I am laughing at AFV this time in the evening. Tonight I am laughing at the people that elected Joe. I can’t believe they bought his BS. The government doesn’t want to stop us hunting deer or rabbits. They want total power over all of us, not stopping criminal acts. They can’t take guns from all the criminals. I am so very glad that the NRA is battling elected criminals for us honest American people and help our honest political patriots in office. STAND UP Americans!

  • JohnLeo says:

    Unfortunately I live East of the Hitler controlled state NJ All Hail King Murphy ! Need I say more !

  • James F M Baur Jr says:

    Although it will never happen, I sincerely wish that California would become a 2nd Amendment sanctuary state. Hollywood controls California, so I guess I’m just spitting
    into the wind with this never to be realized wish. That’s why I don’t own a firearm.
    I do, though, have resources every bit as deadly, which I hope I’m never forced to use.
    Break in at your own risk, and bear the consequences of your action(s).

  • Billie Gould says:

    I am 91 and have my concealed carry permit so as to permit me to carry in other states as well. Georgia is very gun friendly and has laws to protect yourself within your home.

  • james platt jr. says:
