    That's simply not true. I personally know a guy who is ex army and twice in the last six months, in my presence, I've seen him have negligent discharges. One was a flyer from a 9mm and the other time he almost shot himself in the foot with a .22 semi.

    Mandated training means nothing. Training by personal choice means everything.
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    I love America and the Constitution, if you don't then get out!

    Ultimately, this isn't about lawful, legal adults having firearms. It isn't about idiots who wish to deprive legal adults of firearms.

    This is about the corruption of the ruling faction in the Oklahoma legislature, and the corrupt, elitist friends of theirs in the ORA.

    I always thought NY and Louisiana were the most corrupt states. Now I am having my doubts.

    That wasn't the US Army I was in!

    Actually, that is exactly the US Army I was in in 1984.

Yeah, I know there are some that should be allowed. But it'd be too big of a hassle to qualify each one.
    Just don't think it'd be a good idea right now.
    That's funny. Colorado has been a permitless OC state for since I don't know when. Seems to work just fine.

    Then why aren't you called "ArmyLT"?

    I enlisted in the Navy in 1988, went to OCS and was commissioned in the Navy in 2001.

    Also, being an O-3 in the Navy, makes me a Captain in the Army, but I can't say I am a Captain, being in the Navy, because then I would be claiming to be an O-6 in the Navy!

    Now, since I've been selected to O-4, hopefully to get paid in July, I will be a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy, which eliminates some confusion because I would be a Major in the Army, but we don't have Majors in the Navy, except as the primary focus of our college degrees!
