WE ARE THEOKLAHOMA RIFLEASSOCIATION
Founding of the ORA
The Oklahoma Rifle Association was originally founded in 1927 and incorporated with the State of Oklahoma 24 July 1941. The vision now, was that the united voices of separate clubs are more powerful than standing alone. The service and representation of these members is our absolute highest priority.

Based on extensive input from members and member clubs, here are our goals and commitments:
Perpetuation of hunting, fishing, trapping, and shooting rights. Assurance of equal access to and the common use of public lands and resources, Preservation of critical wildlife habitat, Equality among users of public resources, Dedication to continued public education on renewable resource management. Participation in legislative, regulatory, administrative and judicial policy-making decisions affecting Oklahoma's natural resources and their uses.
Since 1927 the ORA is the only Affiliated State Association of the NRA.
And a Commitment to Our Members
The primary emphasis of the ORA is to represent our members and member clubs on second amendment, educational and policy issues of statewide and national importance that cannot be easily handled by individual member clubs.
This translates into many activities, ranging from educational booths at outdoor shows to hiring lobbyists in Oklahoma City. Some other examples include taking the lead on statewide ballot measures, testifying at the Boards of Fisheries and Game, and interacting with Administrative agencies on critical statewide issues.
Our longevity and grassroots membership have made us well-known among decision makers in Oklahoma City.
Our policies and procedures are derived from the grass roots up. Everything we do and stand for comes from the membership. We welcome and encourage your involvement; from participation at the Annual Meeting to serving on a host of ORA Outdoor Committees. The ORA Board Members are elected by the membership during the Annual ORA Meeting.
