OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Andy Fugate, D-Del City, released a statement this week in response to House Bill 2982, which passed off the House floor on Monday. The bill, if passed into law, would establish that a firearm suppressor manufactured in Oklahoma, and which remains in Oklahoma, would not be subject to federal law or federal regulation.

“In 2012, Kansas passed their Second Amendment Protection Act. The act said firearms and accessories produced and sold within Kansas were not subject to federal firearms laws,” Fugate said. “Believing this was true, a firearms dealer named Shane Cox sold an unregistered suppressor to a U.S. Army veteran named Jeremy Kettler. Cox told Kettler the silencer was made in his Kansas shop and therefore didn’t need to be registered because federal law did not apply. Cox showed him the law passed by the Kansas Legislature and signed by the governor.

“The Kansas Legislature’s belief that state law would supersede federal law on this issue was tested in the Supreme Court. Today, both Kettler and Cox are convicted federal felons.”

Fugate said Oklahoma should learn from the mistake made in Kansas and not put well-meaning Oklahomans at risk of running afoul of federal law.
