COLLINSVILLE, OK — There are no major gun or ammo manufacturers in Oklahoma right now. But in the past week, both the House and Senate have passed bills to make guns made here immune from federal regulations. But is this even legal?

Medlock Firearms imports all of its guns and ammunition from other states. With both in high demand these days, the store’s owner says it’s difficult to keep its shelves stocked.

“People are still buying much more than they consume, and manufacturers can’t make enough to catch up with that,” said Becky Medlock of Medlock Firearms.

Oklahoma lawmakers would like to see companies meet demand by moving to the Sooner State. The House passed the Firearms Freedom Act Tuesday, and it will head to the Senate for a vote. If passed, it would allow gun makers and owners to avoid any future federal regulations as long as the weapons and ammo don’t leave the state.
