A Big GO-Rilla says; “Silence Is Golden (On 2nd Amendment Issues)”

Last week, there was an amazing story on Fox 25 regarding campus concealed carry and it was a result of a shooting that took place up in Stillwater.  But, the champions of the 2nd Amendment during the campaign season were more than pleased to tell us how they were on our team and Governor-elect Mary Fallin actually had on her website:

Furthermore, I believe that gun ownership rights in Oklahoma can and should be expanded. Gov. Brad Henry vetoed an “open carry” law that would have permitted responsible gun owners to carry weapons without concealing them. When I am governor, I will sign that bill into law and send a message that in Oklahoma, we mean business when it comes to the second amendment.

But, now that the election is over, the question remains as to whether or not the Republican majority will follow through – or even answer a question about campus concealed carry.

Asking a few of the candidates and elected officials whether they would support 21 year-old students who meet the requirements for the SDA (Self-Defense Act) to carry on campus, some responded, some were amazingly silent and continue to be silent.  One simple question has been asked and will continue to be asked:  Will you support a campus concealed carry bill this session? Here is the update…

The Silence is Golden Crowd:
Governor-elect Mary Fallin
Lt. Governor-elect Todd Lamb
Candidate for SD47 Greg Treat

Outspoken Supporters:
Candidate for SD47, Carol Hefner
Candidate for SD47, Kenny Goza
Representative Jason Murphey

  1. One statement that will always be true, “When it’s illegal to have guns, only the criminals will have guns.” Unarmed, contained groups will continue to be targets for unbalanced individuals until people wake up and allow people to protect themselves.

  2. I expect the Republicans, who are true Republicans to advance this legislation and I expect Fallin to sign it. She is not yet the Gov. I have confidence in her. I look forward to see open carry, as it sends a direct message to us Okies that our Government trusts us. Remember, Timothy McVeigh did not have to have a gun to kill and destroy that day in April. Yes, he did have a gun, but, it was his drivers license that allowed him to get the bomb making material, rent the van, load it up and park it along the street. Driving in the State of OK is not a RIGHT, it is a privilidge. I expect the Red Led Congress of Oklahoma will return the 2nd amendment RIGHTS back to us the good citizens of OKlahoma.
