Citizens are more than welcome to attend, and will be permitted to offer testimony at this hearing. Please consider wearing your OFCC shirt to show support for the organization.

Your presence at this meeting is beneficial to the cause.

More information may be posted here over the next few days.

If you are interested in providing testimony and don't know what to speak about, consult our Education Guide, or feel free to contact us for talking points at [email protected].

If you wish to fill a seat and deliver hand-written testimony, you can do that as well. There is no requirement to speak. Your support for concealed carry reform is needed NOW: gather your friends and car pool to the hearings wearing OFCC shirts and khaki pants or blue jeans. Simply filling a seat in the Gallery through the entire process makes a serious statement of support, and wearing an OFCC shirt makes it perfectly clear why you're there, and what side you're on.

Since this may be the ONLY chance you have to speak before the committee
hearing House Bill 12, we highly encourage you to attend this hearing. The room this hearing is being held in is extremely small, so if you wish to speak, fill out a testimony slip and wait in the hallway if neccesary.

If you need to purchase a Denim or Polo shirt for HB12 hearings, please visit OFCC's online website right away!

NOTE: HB12 can be found on our website in the form of a PDF file (click on the Downloads link from the menu bar at the top of this page, and select Legislation). If you have not obtained it and wish to read the proposed legislation, please feel
free to download a copy. If you have concerns that you find in HB12, please
bring them to our attention: [email protected].

When attending hearings on HB12 in the Criminal Justice Committee, keep in mind that parking can be found under the building (if you arrive early) or in neighboring parking garages.
