Dahm files bill to revitalize State Guard

Sen. Dahm files bill revitalizing state militia

OKLAHOMA CITY – Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, filed Senate Bill 1251 on Wednesday to revitalize the Oklahoma militia and provide greater protection for the citizens of Oklahoma.

“The Second Amendment states that a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state,” Dahm said. “As the feds continue to fail in almost every regard, it is becoming more and more apparent that we as a state must provide for our own security.”

The bill states local guard units can be voluntarily funded and supplied, and that individuals may be required to use privately owned semi-automatic weapons if mustered into service.

“State guards and militias have a rich history in our nation dating back to the Minutemen of times past,” Dahm said. “They were necessary in 1776, and they are necessary today.”

The bill also amends the age requirements for state guard participation and would create a unit of the Oklahoma State Guard in each county.

 “We can no longer afford to rely on the feds for protection,” Dahm said. “It falls to us as citizens of the state of Oklahoma to ‘secure the blessing of liberty’ to our state. I have always fought, and will continue to fight, for the citizens of the state of Oklahoma, even when others are unwilling.”
