Anti-Bloomburg OK Bill S856, text

This is an Anti-Bloomburg law for Oklahoma.  If Bloomburg tries to pull one of his “sting” operations in OK, he can be arrested under section D.  The “Fraudulent Firearms Purchase Prevention Act”, passed unanimously in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

By: Russell, Brecheen, Brinkley and Shortey of the Senate and  Wesselhoft, Reynolds, Ritze and Kern of the House

An Act relating to firearm transactions; defining terms; making certain conduct between persons and licensed dealers or private sellers unlawful; providing applicability to other persons under certain circumstances; providing exception; providing penalties; providing for codification; and providing an effective date.

I hope more states pass laws like this.
