A group of Oklahoma state senators have failed to override their governor’s veto of a bill that would exempt firearms and ammunition produced and kept in the state from federal regulations.

The Republican-controlled Senate voted 28-16 on Wednesday with 36 votes needed to override Democratic Gov. Brad Henry’s veto of the “Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act.” There was no debate.

Republican state Sen. Randy Brogdon, who is running for governor, vowed to try again to override the veto.

The bill says firearms, gun accessories or ammunition made in Oklahoma would not be subject to interstate commerce laws and federal regulations if they remain in the state.

Henry warned the bill would give criminals easy access to a wide array of weapons.

  • Sad news…get rid of the gov and make the Firearms Freedom Act a reality.

  • My guess is the Governor will be “gone” during the next election anyway along with his Democratic cronies. Good Riddance! If you vote for the Democrats, you are going to lose your freedoms 1 at a time until they are gone. When they can control how your food is going to taste, they can do anything they want. Shouldn’t that be YOUR decision?? Sorry, I get started on their crap and can’t stop!!
