A national watchdog group says Oklahoma gets a 'D-' when it comes to gun laws that protect children.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says Oklahoma's gun death rate among children and teens was 23% higher than the national average in 1998. That's the latest year data was available.

The state got other low marks for not having a child access prevention law and allowing people to carry hidden handguns in public.
