Open Carry in Oklahoma
Just spoke with my representative Glen Mulready. Asked him how he feels about guns. He said he was pro-gun, owned several and would vote for good gun bills. Asked him about the recent open carry bill that failed. He said that a Democrat, Emily Virgin, basically tricked the author of the bill into accepting a ridiculous amendment at the last minute. She represented it as an amendment to allow open carry if a person has a restraining order against someone else. What she didn't quite explain clearly enough was that the actual amendment wording allowed open carry ONLY if a person has a RO. :mad: The amendment was accepted before the author realized the trick.
Moral of this story: Vote Emily Virgin out of office at the earliest opportunity.
Glen also indicated that he expected another open carry bill next year and thought it would probably pass. Hope springs eternal!!!
So much for the wonderful pro-gun Republican politicians in OK. Our best shot is a petition and a referendum vote next November. Gov. Mary Fallin promised to push for open carry when she ran for office. She has failed to do this, probably because the OK state police don't want open carry.
