Oklahoma group seeks to overturn permitless carry law
August 30, 2019
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A group seeking to stop a new Oklahoma law that would allow people to openly carry firearms without training or a background check is delivering thousands of signatures in hopes of putting the issue to a vote of the people.
Led by Democratic state Rep. Jason Lowe and gun safety group Moms Demand Action, opponents of the new law gathered more than 50,000 signatures in two weeks ahead of Thursday's 5 p.m. deadline. The group needs 59,320 signatures to qualify the petition for the ballot, and Lowe said it wasn't clear Thursday afternoon if they had enough.
