    **** Warning **** Website has font big enough to read from mars The legalization of medical marijuana comes with a big issue for Oklahoma's gun owners. If you want to get medical marijuana, you can't own or buy a gun. Federal law prohibits any person who is an "unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance" from possessing firearms or ammunition. The law covers everything from owning, shipping, transporting or receiving any firearms or ammunition. There are no exceptions in the law for medical marijuana users. Some gun shop owners we talked to are a little concerned. 6/27/2018 Related...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma voters on Tuesday backed the medicinal use of marijuana, overcoming a late opposition campaign from law enforcement and business, faith and political leaders. State Question 788 , the result of an activist-led signature drive launched more than two years ago, makes it legal to grow, sell and use marijuana for medicinal purposes. The proposed law outlines no qualifying conditions, which would allow physicians to authorize its use for a broad range of ailments — a fact that sparked bitter opposition, particularly from law enforcement. Under the proposed law, a two-year medical marijuana license would allow...

    The Payne County Oklahoma Budget Board voted to restore county employee's Second Amendment rights on May 14, 2018. Oklahoma requires a state issued carry permit to carry a handgun outside the home, except for certain, limited exceptions. The Payne County Budget Board made clear that county employees can exercise Second Amendment rights inside of county buildings, if they have  a valid carry permit and sign a waiver. The waiver states they understand some limitations, and they are not to draw the firearm except in valid defense of self or others. From stwnewspress.com: Reding said the Budget Board, a body...

    VINITA — Eighteen years after two teenagers from Welch disappeared, police have arrested one of three men they say tortured and held the girls for days before strangling them to death. The killers bragged that the bodies of Ashley Freeman and Lauria Bible, both 16, are “in a pit in Picher,” according to an affidavit released at a news conference Monday. Ronnie Dean Busick, 66, of Wichita, Kansas, faces a host of charges in the 1999 deaths of the girls and Freeman’s parents, Kathy and Danny Freeman. He is in custody at the Harvey County, Kansas, jail. Two other suspects...

    A pack of seven dogs with legs shorter than an adult hand attacked an Oklahoma woman, inflicting injuries so severe she later died. ARDMORE, OK — A pack of vicious dogs, some of them described as predominantly dachshunds, or wiener dogs, mauled an Oklahoma woman to death last week. It's unclear what caused the dogs to attack Tracy Garcia, 52, outside her home near Ardmore on Thursday, but their owner could face charges, according to media reports. One of the dogs was shot after charging at a Carter County deputy who responded to the attack, and the other six were...

    On Wednesday, 25 April, 2018, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a Constitutional Carry bill, SB 1212, 59-28.  The bill had already passed the Senate unanimously on March 6th, 2018, but as a bill removing wildlife refuges as gun free zones. From kfor.com: Other critics say constitutional carry would put law enforcement at risk, but the bill's author says that shouldn't be put above a citizen's right. "I do not support the rights of law enforcement to feel not threatened or safe to the detriment of my own constitutional rights," said Rep. Jeff Coody, the bill's author. After amended,...

    Young Auctioneer Auctions off Guns The Wagoner County Oklahoma Sheriff's office held an auction of guns from its property room on 19 August, 2017.  For a segment of the gun auction, the auctioneer was a boy, about 12 years old. He does an excellent job.  You may have to scroll down the facebook page a bit to see the video. Link to facebook video: The firearms went for surprisingly low prices, compared to most gun auctions that I have seen. The Marlin .22 rifles went for about $100, and Browning patent Auto-5 type shotgun only brought $200. It is...

You can view images of the vehicles and the gun on line at the rockinmauction.com website.A list of the available firearms is available here, but the information is not completely accurate.  For example, the make of an RG10 pistol is listed as “Bohm”, a simple misreading of Rohm. There are numerous plain Jane hunting rifles and shotguns, some more desirable than others. The list shows 15 Marlin .22...

    On 19 May, 2017, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin signed into law another reform of Oklahoma firearms law. SB 397 removed another egregious discrimination against poor people exercising their Second Amendment rights. In Oklahoma, it is illegal to bear arms on buses used as public mass transportation. Most people who have sufficient means prefer to use private transportation. In most situations it is far more efficient, effective, and convenient to use individual transport.  But in some situations, such as in crowded urban centers where parking is expensive, time consuming, and hard to find, a great many people have to resort...

  • Oklahoma likely to pass Defensive Display (SB 40)

    The vast majority of defensive firearm uses involve the defensive display of the firearm. In some states, it is illegal to display a gun for defensive purposes without risking a felony. Mere display is considered the use of deadly force. Estimates of defensive gun uses vary form about 100,000 to 3 million each year(CDC pdf). Yet only 1,500 to 3,000 people are justifiably killed each year. About five to ten times that many are shot and end up hospitalized. About five to ten  times as many as are shot, are shot at, but missed.  The number of times when...
