Governor Mary Fallin (R) signed into law House Bill 1004, which provides that lawsuits may not be brought against manufacturers, distributors or sellers of firearms if such suits are based on criminal or unlawful use of the product by a third party.
However, these protections will not apply to actions arising from the unlawful sale or transfer of firearms, or instances in which the transferor knew, or should have known, that the recipient would engage in the unlawful sale or transfer of the firearm, or would use, or purposely allow the use of, the firearm in an unlawful, negligent or improper fashion.
The NRA thanks all state Senators and state Representatives who voted for this critical protection of the Second Amendment and American firearms industry, bill authors Representative T.W. Shannon (R-62) and Senators Brian Bingman (R-3) and Anthony Sykes (R-24), and Governor Fallin for signing HB 1004 into law. –NRA Press Release
