Gov. Kevin Stitt wasted no time in signing a bill approved by Oklahoma’s state legislature on Friday that bars cities and towns across the state from adopting red flag firearm seizure ordinances. SB 1081 was one of the last bills to pass the legislature this year, with the final vote to approve the measure coming just hours before the state legislature adjourned. Stitt signed the bill on Saturday, ensuring that red flag laws, or Extreme Risk Protection Orders, can’t be approved by city councils or anti-gun mayors. The bill’s primary sponsors, Sen. Nathan Dahm and Rep. Jay Steagall, say they’re hoping to prevent future problems by putting the prohibition into law.
