Lawmakers may seek to override governor’s veto of gun reform bill, again

At the urging of Second Amendment groups, Oklahoma lawmakers could soon move to challenge Republican Gov. Mary Fallin over gun rights.

This comes just days after Fallin dropped veto ink on a successful Senate bill that would have prohibited private entities from banning guns in rented public spaces and streets. The measure had navigated the state legislature successfully with huge bipartisan margins — only picking up 11 combined opposing votes in its trek through both chambers.

Now, one of the bill’s co-authors is seeking to find common ground with the governor’s office so that the bill could be adjusted and resubmitted, but if not, he is willing to call for a move to override.
