Oklahoma City, OK – A Democratic state representative from Oklahoma City and other advocates for more restrictive gun laws have filed a lawsuit challenging a new Oklahoma law that will allow it’s citizens to carry firearms.
State Rep. Jason Lowe (Oklahoma City-D) sued Monday in Oklahoma County, arguing the law violates a constitutional requirement that bills deal with only one subject matter.
The bill signed by Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) would allow people to carry firearms, concealed or openly, without the currently required background check or training. The bill is scheduled to take effect Nov. 1.
Lowe and other advocates already fell short of gathering enough signatures to send the issue to a vote of the people.
