Oklahoma governor vetoes gun Take Charge in Conquer NRA

Senate Bill 1212, also referred to as the "Constitutional Carry" bill, was presented by Sen.

"If this bill becomes law it will cost Oklahomans millions of dollars in litigation fees, in a time when Oklahoma cannot properly fund education and other core services", Freedom Oklahoma executive director Troy Stevenson warned late last month.

Several Republican candidates to succeed Fallin as governor urged her this week to sign it.

Fallin additional that the bill "eradicates the present capacity of Oklahoma law enforcement to distinguish among people carrying guns who've been trained and vetted, and people who've maybe not", instills a debate that lots of law makers that opposed the mandate, such as for instance Democratic state Rep. Shane Stone, created the monthly bill was debated. With this action, Oklahoma has the negative distinction of being the only state [s] to sign an anti-LGBTQ bill into law this year.

About a dozen states have "constitutional carry" laws in place.

"Oklahomans believe that law-abiding individuals should be able to defend themselves", Fallin said in a statement.


The bill's author says he believes adoptions will increase in the state. I support the right to bear arms and own a pistol, a rifle, and a shotgun.

Under current law, adults in Oklahoma must have a license to carry a handgun in public - either openly or concealed. When announcing the veto she said, "I believe the firearms laws we now have in place are effective, appropriate and minimal".

Human rights advocates and celebrities had called on Fallin to veto the bill.

The new law makes it legal to deny placing children in LGBTQ homes based on "religious objections".

SB 1140 prohibits private child placement agencies that do not receive state or federal funding from being required to participate in child placements "that violate the agency's written religious or moral convictions or policies". While that may be technically true, it would allow agencies to reject couples "in accordance with their beliefs" ― that is, because those couples are in the LGBTQ community. There are children in the Oklahoma child welfare system in desperate need of loving families.

As queer and trans advocacy groups in Oklahoma pursue legal action to overturn the law, almost every leading civil rights organization has come out to oppose SB 1140.
