OKLAHOMA CITY – The Senate adopted a resolution Monday encouraging the National Rifle Association (NRA) to move its headquarters from Fairfax, Virginia, to Oklahoma. State Sen. Micheal Bergstrom, R-Adair, authored Senate Resolution 6.

The NRA is known as America’s foremost defender of the Second Amendment and the premier firearms education organization in the world. They are currently looking to move their incorporation from New York to Texas and are considering moving their national headquarters out of Fairfax.

The resolution cites Oklahoma’s gun-friendly legislation and history, including constitutional carry, as one reason to make the state their new home. It also references Oklahoma’s business-friendly climate in the wake of the pandemic and business closures and restrictions across the country.

“It just makes sense for Oklahoma to be the new home of the NRA,” Bergstrom said. “Oklahomans are extremely supportive and protective of their Second Amendment rights. We rank in the Top Ten in the country in firearms sales, and we’re open for business. The NRA loves liberty just like Oklahomans, and I know they’d fit right in here in Oklahoma. We are happy to show them all our state can offer.”
