The Truth About Guns reports that Constitutional Carry will remain safe in Oklahoma after a petition to repeal it failed to gather enough signatures for a statewide referendum.
According to a court filing on Thursday, an attorney for gun control group Moms Demand Action claims that they collected between 30,000 and 50,000 signatures. The initiative needed about 60,000 signatures from registered voters to get on the ballot.
Attorney Brian Ted Jones argues that the reason for this uncertainty was because the Constitutional Carry repeal supporters were dropping off signatures right up until the August 29th headline.
Democratic State Representative Jason Lowe led this petition alongside civilian disarmament group Moms Demand Action, which has been largely motivated by recent massacres in Texas and Ohio to pass gun control at the state level.
