Oklahoma law prohibits any person convicted of a felony to possess or control a machine gun, or have one in any vehicle the person is operating or riding in as a passenger, or at his or her residence.1
The state also prohibits any person previously adjudicated as a delinquent child or a youthful offender for commission of an offense that would have constituted a felony if committed by an adult to possess or control a machine gun within 10 years after such adjudication, or to have one in any vehicle which he or she is driving or riding in as a passenger, or at his or her residence.2
Federal law requires machine guns to be registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), and generally prohibits the transfer or possession of machine guns manufactured after May 19, 1986.3 In December 2018, ATF finalized a rule to include bump stocks within the definition of a machine gun subject to this federal law, meaning that bump stocks will be generally banned as of March 26, 2019.4
