    Oklahoma Rifle Association sells out open carry

    More corrupt trash from a phony RKBA organization.

    Gun rights group opposes Okla's open carry bill | Tulsa World

    Wanna bet a payoff occurred somewhere in this?

    Sorry

    but I have to agree with the club. If you can't allow it on a person by person basis, and you can't, I just don't think a high percentage of 18 yr old kids running around today should have a gun in their hand....much less openly carrying. 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.

    Beau: I have to disagree with you and that rifle club. If you restrict 18 yr olds from carrying weapons, you will seriously deplete our military. Those 18 yr old MEN are doing a magnificent job in combat around the world. Why can't they carry at home? I lied about my age and enlisted at 16 and was carrying weapons several years before I was even allowed to buy a beer. In the article, the rifle club mentioned walking around with rifles and shotguns, not pistols. Just how many people are going to walk around with long guns? I think some people have nothing better to do than to complicate matters for others. How would the club like it if restrictions were to be put on their activities just to satisfy those who may think they are too OLD to be handling rifles and shotguns? Sort of tit for tat?

    The organization is probably involved in the backroom deal to run on pro-gun issues but make sure nothing passes. I suspect their leadership is composed of Fudds who think only elitists should have the privilege of hunting.

    The governor is publicly going to sign open carry. Her deal with the leadership is that it never makes it to her desk.

    A relatively clean carry bill passed last year. As planned the gov vetoed it. When it was time to override, most of those that voted for it originally were nowhere to be found insuring the override failed.

    Now that they said the would pass open carry, they have total power to do it, yet they are doing everything to sabotage it. Maybe they want to run on this next year.

    The Oklahoma legislature is almost as corrupt as the Louisiana legislature. We even had a married repub senator found having sex with the lobbyist to whom he awarded a major contract to sell the juvenile system to a private exploitation company. The crooked AG says he couldn't find anything wrong with this.

    I can count the honest legislators on one hand.

    Do I need to go on?

    The 2nd Amendment must REALLY bother you....
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    The second amendment presently provides individuals the right to own a firearm of common usage for purposes of self defense in their homes, subject to a state or local licensing scheme.

    Tossing the 2nd into a discussion of the appropriateness of open carry for 18-years old is a stink bomb. That is a typical tactic of the anti-gun gangs - trying to muck up the issue so that it can't get discussed intelligently and perhaps resolved in favor of expanding citizens' ability to own and possess firearms.

    The anti-gunners want to keep the discussion focused on nonsensical debates about the 2nd amendment so that there won't be a sensible discussion about the issues that presently block citizens from owning or possessing firearms outside of their homes without government interference.

    That might not be a bad idea:

    Now hold on.
    An 18 year old can be in the military, trusted with a gun to go fight in a war to preserve YOUR freedom here at home, but that same 18 year old brain turns to mush otherwise?

    Well, there is a difference. Military training reduces the trainee to infantile status, then rebuilds the trainee into a focused fighting machine. Along the way the trainee receives a good deal of instruction about how not to shot a fellow trainee.

    If 18-year olds in civies went through the same training I'd agree they should have the same access to firearms.
