The officer checked each man's background and found Cook had one deferred felony conviction and Daveon Jackson has two pending felony cases against him in Oklahoma County, according to the report.

State law prohibits the sale of firearms to felons, but no state law requires firearms sellers to conduct background checks on purchasers. A federal law that requires federally licensed firearms dealers to conduct these checks does not apply to private sellers.

David Jackson was arrested on complaints of driving with no state driver's license, improper right turn and possession of a firearm. Cook was arrested on a possession of a firearm complaint. Daveon Jackson was arrested on a conspiracy to purchase a firearm complaint.
