After consulting with the Department of Public Safety, Senator Don Barrington (R-Lawton) has authored a bill that would make it unlawful to wear a mask, hood or covering during the commission of a crime or to intentionally conceal his or her identity in a public place.
There are provisions. Such as, pranks of children on Halloween, religious beliefs and special events like a parade, masquerade party or weather.
But if you wear a hood with ill intentions, you could be slapped with a misdemeanor fine of $50 to $500 and or one year in jail.
I grumbled about this earlier:
@carriejacobs It's like we have a state quota for dumb bills every year, and they're worried about falling behind.

This is the epitome of “Well, let’s give the prosecutors something else to hang on ’em.” And the first time some woman in a burqa gets busted for something like shoplifting, what you’ll see hitting the fan will not be at all halal.
