Bill Aims To Strengthen 2nd Amendment

To strengthen the Second Amendment rights of Oklahomans, more about state Rep. Lewis Moore has filed legislation to deter frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

“In recent years gun-control fanatics have used litigation to indirectly undermine our constitutional rights. By filing frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers, drug they have attempted to put those companies out of business and, pilule for all intents and purposes, block access to firearms and gut the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,” Moore said. “My legislation will prevent fanatics from abusing our courts in that fashion and protect the fundamental constitutional rights of working Oklahomans.”

House Bill 2884, creates the “Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act,” which declares that a “personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Oklahoma and that remains within the borders of Oklahoma is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce.”

The legislation notes that regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and that Article II, Section 26, of the Oklahoma Constitution “clearly secures to Oklahoma citizens, and prohibits interference with, the right of individual Oklahoma citizens to keep and bear arms.”

¬†As a result, under the bill, guns manufactured in Oklahoma and sold to citizens of the state would not be subject to federal regulations since “those items have not traveled in interstate commerce.”

Guns manufactured would be required to have the words “Made in Oklahoma” clearly stamped on a central metallic part, such as the receiver or frame. -[source]
