Oklahoma has the normal sales tax on groceries. One of my absolute biggest pet peeves. Talk about a regressive tax... do we think Toby Keith eats 500x more potatoes than the middle class working people?

But back on topic... this is the biggie for me:

FFLs are licensed by the state as well as the federal gov't and the DOR is just using them to collect the use tax on transfers from out of state.
That would put a serious crimp in my gun buying. Right now I buy a $2000 gun on gunbroker. Have it shipped to my dealer for $20. And pay the $20 transfer fee. But the sales tax here is 9.5%. If I had to pay that... that single rifle would run me $190 in sales tax. Wow. Over the course of a year, that really adds up.
