In 2011, Oklahoma adopted an anti-trafficking law making it a felony for:
- Any person who knowingly solicits, persuades, encourages or entices a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition to transfer a firearm or ammunition under circumstances which the person knows would violate federal or state law;
- Any person who provides to a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition what the person knows to be materially false information with intent to deceive the dealer or seller about the legality of a transfer of a firearm or ammunition; and
- Any person who willfully procures another to engage in either of these types of conduct.1
“Materially false information” means information that portrays an illegal transaction as legal or a legal transaction as illegal.2
Oklahoma has no other laws aimed at firearms trafficking.
