(Oklahoma City, OK.) - The Department of Public Safety is warning traffic law violators of new restrictions concerning traffic laws.
House Bill 1507, which was signed by Governor Fallin on May 18th, 2011, took effect November 1st, 2011. It calls for a mandatory one year drivers license revocation for any licensee convicted of the following traffic offenses:
1. Reckless driving without regard to the safety of others.
2. Failure to stop for a school bus loading or unloading children.
The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today's White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.
