The following is a video transcript.
I’m coming to talk to you today about going to parties, festivities, and events between Christmas and the New Year. How should you drink socially, have your guns, and how should you shoot fireworks? These are problems.
It is against the law in the State of Oklahoma to consume alcohol to the point where you are under the influence and, at the same time, handle your firearms. Even on your private property, you are not allowed to do so.
It is against the law. That’s pretty simple.
What about shooting fireworks? Shooting your fireworks in most major metropolitan areas is against the law. Also, you could get in trouble for shooting and possessing fireworks in the city limits of Oklahoma City, Lawton, Muskogee, Tulsa, and all the major metropolitan areas in the State of Oklahoma.
Do you have an obligation to help a stranger who is injured, either from being hurt by fireworks or receiving a gunshot wound? The answer is no. You have no obligation to come to the aid of a stranger who has been injured either from gunshot wounds or by fireworks or any other accident. However, the Good Samaritan Act in the State of Oklahoma will immunize the Good Samaritan who does come to the aid of a stranger who is injured.
What if you cause the injury?
First thing, call 911. Call an ambulance. Try to mitigate the injury as best you can. Second off, if this injury that you caused was related to self-defense or some action which could be either perceived as self-defense or articulated as self-defense, using any legal weapons, call U.S. LawShield.
