OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said their agency could lose up to $8 million under a gun bill that passed the Senate on Thursday. OSBI is already freezing positions, and officials tell NewsChannel 4 they’re looking at furloughs. Aside from public safety concerns, the OSBI is looking at how a pair of gun bills could trim their budget even more .More than a quarter million people in Oklahoma have a license to carry a gun.The OSBI issues and renews those licenses, and that money helps fund the agency.

Good! Why would Gun Owners who are proven and certified Good Guys and Gals have to pay extra for Law Enforcement? Tack a fee to criminals for every time they are arrested, they are the ones making cops necessary.

Florida’s CWP Fees can only be used for permit-related business. Apparently it has grown enough that our fees for the 7-year license have (will) come down again to $60 for the first time and $50 for renewal.  Legislators in the past have been tempted to try and divert those funds, but they were slapped hard and told not to touch the CWP Piggy Bank.

  1. I agree we shouldn’t have to subsidize something we hardly ever use*, but tacking extra fees onto the criminals, I don’t think would work. I’d wager a fair number default on payment, or get deferred dispositions due to ‘financial hardship’ so the bill gets sent to us in one for or another anyway 🙁

  2. How will they make up the funds?

    They could increase confiscating property? I saw a report that Law Enforcement nationwide confiscated more property than was stolen by criminals last year, so I think it can be done.

    Can they write more tickets and collect more fines? Ferguson MO Made a quarter of their entire municipal budget from fines and tickets. They kept pushing for more! money! and more tickets from the police. That really endeared the people to the Ferguson Police. Wonder why they rioted?

    They could just costs?

    Or the legislature and Oklahomans can just pony up the cash.
