Oklahoma --(Ammoland.com)- Today, the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted 86-3 to override the Gov. Mary Fallin’s veto of House Bill 2461.

The bill, which was one of 15 House bills that the governor vetoed on Tuesday morning, would have required Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEOs) in Oklahoma to sign NFA applications within 15 days of receipt, unless the applicant was found to be a prohibited person.

HB 2461 previously passed the House by a 92-1 margin, and the Senate with a unanimous 46-0 vote.

During a press conference, Fallin explained her decision by stating, “I’ve used my executive power, my executive authority to set aside ‘minor issues’ so that we can have more time to deal with major issues here at the Capitol and hopefully get the attention to get those things done.”

The ASA strongly condemns Gov. Fallin’s decision to veto a bill which was passed with near unanimous support through both chambers. We support the move by the House, and hope that the Senate will do the same.

In recent weeks, Shall Sign legislation has advanced in a number of states across the country. On April 2 2014, Governor Herbert signed House Bill 373 into law, making Utah the first state this session to pass this type of legislation. On April 11 2014, Gov. Beshear of Kentucky signed House Bill 128 into law, an omnibus bill which included shall sign language from Senate Bill 232. On April 23, Gov. Brownback of Kansas signed House Bill 2578 into law, and on April 23 2014, Gov. Brewer of Arizona did the same when she signed House Bill 2535.

Please contact members of the Senate IMMEDIATELY and urge them to override the veto. Also, please contact Gov. Fallin and voice your disapproval of the veto. Contact information can be found here:

      A governor who is not only out of touch with the people of the state, but the legislature. Sounds like that bus ride is about over.

    2. We need this in Texas!
