Representative challenges firearm bill

The Associated Press - October 8, 2019 4:43 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A Democratic state representative from Oklahoma City and other advocates for tighter gun laws have filed a lawsuit challenging a new Oklahoma law that will allow people to carry firearms without a background check or training.

State Rep. Jason Lowe sued Monday in Oklahoma County, arguing the law violates a constitutional requirement that bills deal with only one subject matter.

Current law requires a background check and training before a person can carry a gun in public.
