Safety and security, for the most part, is just an illusion. You lock your door and set your alarm and go to bed at night. What if someone really wants to harm you or take your stuff? I hate to tell you, but they’re going to get it if it isn’t secured properly and if you don’t have redundancy in your security plan.
The Second Amendment clearly states that our right to bear arms shall not be infringed. So why is it that every time we turn around there is someone in Washington, DC trying to do just that? The latest, as you may know, is the UN’s small arms treaty that claims it is to prevent terrorists from obtaining weapons, but since when have terrorist, or any other criminal, paid attention to the law? What’s the truth of the matter?
It seems that every time some moron decides to go shooting people, the loons on the left go after the guns. That’s expected. It always goes that way.
My argument used to be the criminals will get the guns anyway. The only people gun control hurts are the law abiders. However, this time the guy bought the guns legally, as well as the ammo. Obviously, one of the many laws he broke was that he lied about his mental illness on the gun application. So what do we do? Do we change the laws to better control that sort of thing?
From The Blaze:
Then pass the link to everyone you know. This isn’t just about guns, people. It’s about freedom.
This is important for us all. Whether you like guns or not, they have protected your freedom, feed and protected your families, and given us lots of joy just shooting. Make sure you read this story and take action.
The United Nations is deliberating over a treaty that will place comprehensive limits on the international weapons trade. The language of the draft agreement is so expansive it wouldn’t take an Obama-appointed judge very long to extend the treaty to cover the domestic firearms market as well.
Bath salts abound. People get high on them and do ridiculous things like eat people’s faces and kill others. Now, these aren’t real bath salts, they’re designer drugs nicknamed as such. I call them zombies since the drug makes them act as if they came out of a zombie movie like 28 Days Later.
Today, Governor Mary Fallin signed into law the Open Carry/Omnibus gun bill, Senate Bill 1733. Senate Bill 1733 is an omnibus firearm bill containing significant improvements to Oklahoma gun laws, including allowing concealed carry permit holders the choice of open carrying.
Other important provisions include language prohibiting persons, property owners and companies from banning ammunition in locked vehicles; changing the “immediate notification” requirement when a permit holder is stopped by a law enforcement officer to notification at “first opportunity” while also greatly reducing the associated fine for non-compliance; a provision allowing people to carry firearms openly without a permit on their private property; and revisions to the current Oklahoma statute striking the word “concealed” from Oklahoma firearm permit citations and applying the lawful open carrying of firearms to Oklahoma’s firearms preemption law. Additionally, this legislation will allow Sooner State military personnel stationed outside Oklahoma to obtain an Oklahoma permit. This new law becomes effective November 1, 2012.
For that, I say thank you to Mary Fallin. Thank you to the Oklahoma legislature for their hard work. Thank you to the NRA for their involvement and to all the Oklahomans who push for greater 2nd Amendment freedoms.
