Oklahoma Legislature Takes Away a Basic Right

Oklahoma is one of 33 states that have, at the request of the National Rifle Association, passed legislation to ban all lawsuits from being brought against gun manufacturers and distributors for damages resulting from their product. So, apparently in our state you can suffer loss of life or limb at the wrong end of a gun and you do not have the right to sue the manufacturer or distributor. Isn't that nice? Thanks again Oklahoma Legislature for watching out for us. I'm sure the NRA's generous political campaign contributions had nothing to do with your action to take away from the voters the basic right to take legal recourse.
