Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin vetoed a controversial bill that would have allowed any adult in Oklahoma to carry firearms without a permit or background check May 11.

In a third decision on Friday, Fallin vetoed a bill that would have allowed the state to sentence some juveniles to life in prison without parole.

"It is shameful that Gov. Mary Fallin has signed into law a patently discriminatory law that targets children", said JoDee Winterhof, Senior Vice President of Policy and Political Affairs at the Human Rights Campaign. It would have authorized people 21 and older and military personnel who are at least 18 to legally carry a handgun, either openly or concealed, without a state-issued license or permit.

"While we are deeply disappointed that Governor Fallin chose to sign discrimination into law, we are more concerned about the children-desperately looking for homes-that will be harmed by this disgraceful legislation and the countless young people who will be stigmatized by state-sanctioned hate", says Troy Stevenson, executive director of Freedom Oklahoma. I support the right to bear arms and own a pistol, a rifle, and a shotgun.

"Again, I believe the firearms laws we now have in place are effective, appropriate and minimal, and serve to reassure our citizens that people who are carrying handguns in this state are qualified to do so". Senate Invoice 1212 eliminates the coaching necessities for individuals carrying a firearms in Oklahoma.

The measure passed the Senate by a vote of 33-9 and passed the House by a vote of 59-28. Nathan Dahm, was wary which Fallin might choose to veto Constitutional have because "she'd vetoed other gun legislation in years past" he advised Fox News during the time. 1212, been signed into law, Oklahoma would have kept its licensing provisions on the books, but no longer mandated them for those wishing to carry a firearm in public.

" Again, " I believe the firearms laws we now have in place are efficient, minimal and appropriate, and also function to guarantee our citizens that people who're carrying handguns in the nation are capable to accomplish this", Fallin's statement concluded.

"Today, I signed Senate Bill 1140, which allows faith-based agencies that contract with Oklahoma to continue to operate in accordance with their beliefs", Fallin tweeted.
