OKLAHOMA CITY – A gun study scheduled to begin Tuesday at the State Capitol has been canceled.

State Rep. Mike Shelton planned an interim study on our state’s gun laws, including open carry and stand your ground laws.

Now it’s not happening.

Shelton said it is because groups that support gun use are not participating, so the study would not be balanced.

So far, there’s no word from gun advocacy groups on why they chose not to participate.
