Suppressors now legal for hunting
On Thursday, a new law went into effect allowing Oklahoma hunters to use legally-owned gun suppressors for all game animals. Senate Bill 1743 was signed into law in May by Gov. Mary Fallin.
Oklahoma became the third state to legalize suppressors for hunting, joining Texas and Arizona.
