Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin Tuesday sank a popular pro-gun bill to designed to speed up the approval process for gun owners to receive suppressors and other NFA-regulated items.

The bill would have made it easier for gun owners to legally obtain National Firearms Act-regulated items by making it mandatory for local law enforcement to approve legal paperwork for law-abiding citizens — a key part of the process.
Almost universally accepted by state lawmakers, the measure had passed unanimously in the Senate and cleared the House by a 92 to 1 vote on April 23.
“Unfortunately, our progress has stalled here at the Capitol,” Fallin said during a press conference announcing that she had vetoed 15 House bills that, in her opinion, addressed “minor issues.”
The bill that would have mandated ‘shall certify’ for NFA items was among this group of bills.
