“Claims that the technology will be used to track people are inaccurate” Paul Sund

May 11, 2010 the Oklahoma House which previously passed HB 2569 by a wide margin (76-13 with 12 excused) failed to get enough votes to override the Governor’s Veto of the Radio Frequency ID bill.

Henry spokesman Paul Sund thanked the lawmakers for reviewing the legislation and sustaining the governor’s veto.

“It made no sense to prospectively ban technology that can provide future benefits,” Sund said. “Claims that the technology will be used to track people are inaccurate.”

SIA CEO Richard Chace says in his letter to Gov. Henry;

“Unfortunately, this legislation reflects common misperceptions about RFID applications that are based upon twisted facts and emotions generated by ill-informed “privacy rights” advocates.”


“Governor, please be assured that safeguarding the privacy of personal information collected through government-issued identification documents is of paramount concern to our membership”. Read the letter

How long till the lies our trusted official told us becomes painfully apparent to Oklahomans?

The clock is ticking as the use of RFID for TRACKING purposes accelerate. How long until the people in this state are mandated to carry the devious devices?  Anyone want to place their bets?

Japanese company NEC wowed technophiles and horrified privacy advocates earlier this year with electronic billboards that use facial recognition technology to identify the age and gender of passers-by, tailoring the ads they display to fit the demographic. Now IBM researchers in the UK are taking that notion even further, taking advantage of new technologies to delve deeper into the personal data of people on the street, tailoring advertisements that can even call the subject by name.

The billboards they are developing rely on the RFID chips that are increasingly being built into credit cards and cell phones as a means of storing data that is accessible by contact-free sensors (like the “touch pay” feature on some credit and debit cards that doesn’t require the user to swipe). A sensor on the billboard picks up on that RFID signal as the cardholder passes by, tapping information like name, age, gender, shopping habits, and personal preferences.

HB 3354 Oklahoma Open Carry Goes to the House

10/7/10 update
If you are wondering how it ended….
Passed both houses, vetoed by Gov. Brad Henry.
Failed override vote.
Thank the turncoats with a big fat NO vote in November
(especially Glen “Bud” Smithson who called supporters
of the measure COWARDS!)

“. . . most of them are cowards.”

SUBJECT: Urge AWOL & Turncoat legislators to override open carry veto! 

You’re receiving this email because you support the Petition for Open Carry in Oklahoma at http://www.petitiononline.com/oc4ok/petition.html.

House Representative Rex Duncan has stated that he may make another attempt to override the Governor’s veto of HB3354, see http://newsok.com/article/3462793.

Here’s the deal – the open carry bill passed by veto proof majorities in both houses. But after Governor Brad “Veto Happy” Henry vetoed the bill, 15 representatives changed their vote or refused to vote at all for the bill!

It’s one thing for a legislator to stand up and vote anti-gun – that’s at least honest.

But its a whole ‘nother thing to play games and tricks with the people’s right to arms – to hide your vote, duck your vote, and otherwise shirk their duty to take a stand and cast a recorded vote.

Adding insult to injury, incredibly, Representative Glenn Bud Smithson (D-Sallisaw) called open carry supporters COWARDS, see
http://newsok.com/open-carry-weapon-…ad_story_title, but then turned around and REFUSED to even stand up and cast a vote on the veto override matter!

In broad daylight

The next step for the gun measure is the House

Oklahomans licensed to carry a gun would be able to display them openly in most public places if a proposed bill makes it through the Legislature and is signed into law.

Supporters of the legislation say it simply extends already guaranteed Second Amendment rights, while opponents say open carry intimidates other citizens and wastes law enforcement resources.

The state already allows people who complete a background check and receive training to carry a handgun as long as it is concealed from plain view. The proposed law would not relax permit requirements and guns would still be banned from bars, government buildings and schools.

The measure passed the Senate last week by a 33-15 vote and now awaits action in the House.
