Oklahoma Senate Bill Seeks to Ban Gun Shows

OK2A-Action has uncovered an attempt by the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce to effectively outlaw gun shows at public venues statewide through one of the many bills filed for the upcoming Legislature.

Considering that last year the Chamber of Commerce lobbied heavily against SB41 – an OK2A requested bill that would have closed a loophole some cities were using to restrict the lawful carry of a firearms at city festivals – the Chamber apparently is quite comfortable in the company of other anti-gunners like President Obama, Michael Bloomberg, David Boren, and the Brady Campaign.

Senate Bill 1347 was filed at the OKC Chamber’s request and would bring to an end gun shows at publicly owned venues, such as the fairgrounds in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and countless other cities and counties across the state. They presented this legislative proposal to Senator Bingman as though it had the blessing of the NRA. It does not.
