Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry (D-OK)
Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry (D-OK) has vetoed the Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act. In a prepared statement Governor Henry highlight his “support” for the gun rights and his NRA “A” rating before claiming that the legislation “did nothing” to protect the right to keep and bear arms.
“I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and have earned an ‘A’ rating from the NRA, but this legislation does nothing to protect an individual’s right to bear arms,” Henry, a Democrat, said in a statement. “It abolishes commonsense regulations like background checks and gives criminals easy access to a wide array of weapons. This law would harm Oklahomans, not protect them.”
State Sen. Randy Brogdon, a Republican candidate for governor who authored the bill, called Henry’s argument “absurd” and vowed to attempt an override of the veto. That would take a three-quarters majority in both the House and Senate. Read more
