Oklahoma gun laws are among the weakest in nation.
Ranking first place, along with Kentucky and Louisiana.
Oklahoma ranks #4 in nation for the number of females murdered by males. 56% are killed by firearms.
18USC 922(g)(b) and 924(a)(2) Are the Federal Laws written to protect. They cannot protect if they are not enforced.
Why won't DA Richard Smothermon enforce these laws?
In 2004 a young woman was killed by her estranged husband, shot in the chest with a rifle. Her husband had three protective orders and three violation of protective orders filed against him.
No charges have ever been filed.
Is there any wonder why crime runs rampant in Oklahoma?

annie58 Asks, "Why won't DA Richard Smothermon inforce these laws?"[gun laws concerning PROTECTIVE ORDERS.] Answer is, He would've if any other Todd had violated them, but it being this Todd.... Todd Mosier, Smothermon and the County Sheriffs ignored them because of deep commentment to the Mosier's family.They would've loved to have been able to cover up Todd's armed breakin of the pharmacy. Different County involved. Yet Todd still escaped federal firearm violations. Not once but several times....Corrupted officials

Another thing.... If the County Sheriffs and D A Dick Smothermon had inforced their Federal Firearms Violations Law against Todd Mosier Stephanie Payne would not have been murdered and maybe little Tylor and Skyla of Weleetka would still be alive!!!

I agree. It looks like with his history they would have charged him in Okfuskee County with Federal Firearmas Violations. It sure seems if somebody is looking out for him. He was the first person I thought of when I heard about the two little girls in Weleetka being shot. Especially with that being the place where he robbed the drug store. He hadn't been out of prison too long before they were killed.

Yes. And it's a crime for a Pott. Co. DA Smothermon and his County Sheriff buddy Shirey to ignore such violations!....Just goes to show ya "it's not who you know but also who ya blow"
DA Richard Smothermon and Kurt Shirey are guilty as hell for the murder of Stephanie for not inforcing Firearm Violation against Todd Mosier and then guilty as all hell for covering it up.

US Attorney's Office actually has jurisdiction over federal firearms violations. The county DAs don't have authority to file on federal charges, just state charges. Annie58 is correct in citing the Federal Statute USC 18 922 (g)8.

We were told that the US Attorney's Office would not file a charge against him. I wonder why not?
He shot and killed his estranged wife and committed an armed robbery, had quite a few firearms at his home.
Had family in LE and AG's Office, one that worked closely with the DA in Pott. County.
It's a shame that Smotherman was elected to another term!
