Press Release

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Jason Lowe, D-OKC, released the following statement today after House Bill 1630 passed the House floor Monday with a partisan vote of 78-18. House Bill 1630 modifies the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, streamlining the firearm licensing process. 

“As lawmakers, we have a responsibility to enact policy that keeps Oklahoma communities safe,” said State Rep. Jason Lowe, D-OKC. “By removing the ability for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to examine medical records in the firearm renewal process, we are opening up the door for individuals with a history of mental illness or propensity for violence to carry firearms. I am committed to standing against policies that put Oklahomans' lives at risk and threaten the rights of safe and responsible gun owners. House Bill 1630 does both.”
