Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Last night, Governor Mary Fallin (R) signed into law House Bill 1004, authored by state Representative T.W. Shannon (R-62) and state Senators Brian Bingman (R-3) and Anthony Sykes (R-24).

This new law took immediate effect upon the governor’s signature.  It provides that lawsuits may not be brought against manufacturers, distributors or sellers of firearms if such suits are based on criminal or unlawful use of the product by a third party.

However, these protections will not apply to actions arising from the unlawful sale or transfer of firearms, or instances in which the transferor knew, or should have known, that the recipient would engage in the unlawful sale or transfer of the firearm, or would use, or purposely allow the use of, the firearm in an unlawful, negligent or improper fashion.

The NRA thanks all state Senators and state Representatives who voted for this critical protection of the Second Amendment and American firearms industry, and Governor Fallin for signing HB 1004 into law.

    Good job Oklahoma. Perhaps Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska should secede. Hell, why not the entire Louisiana Purchase.

    Midwesterners want NO part of being disarmed by Liberal pansies in California and New York who have no idea what critical thinking, self-defense, self-reliance and personal responsibility are.
