    We the People have the right to keep and bear arms. It says it right here on this old Constitution. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The coming implementation of Constitutional Carry in Oklahoma has served to emphasize the logical flaws in the arguments of those opposed. Constitutional Carry is the removal of restrictions on the carry of handguns in most public places. It restores the state of the law to a close approximation of the law as it existed when the Constitution was signed or the Bill of Rights ratified. At that time, no permits were required to carry handguns either concealed or...

    As recently as a few years ago, the bowl cut was primarily known as an unfashionable hairstyle popular among toddlers whose parents cut their hair, and 1990s child stars. Over the past few years, however, the bowl cut has gone from shorthand for male uncoolness to a chilling symbol of racism and extremist violence, according to a recent report from the Anti-Defamation League. On Thursday morning, the ADL released its additions to its hate symbols database, a library of more than 200 symbols used by hate groups. In addition to entries such as the Happy Merchant, a meme of an...

    he OK hand gesture and the bowlcut hairstyle are among 36 new entries to the Anti-Defamation League’s online listing of hate symbols. The new entries include white supremacist symbols adopted in recent years by the alt-right segment of the white supremacist movement. The OK gesture began as a hoax but became a symbol of white supremacy, according to the ADL. It was flashed in court by the man accused of killing 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 2019. The bowlcut is associated with Dylann Roof, who was convicted of killing nine African-Americans at a church in...

    Oklahoma passed Constitutional Carry in December of 2018. The law was vetoed by Governor Mary Fallin. The legislature passed the bill again, in 2019. The statute was signed into law on 27 February, 2019, by Governor Kevin Stitt. The law restores the right to carry arms in most public places, openly or concealed, without a government permit. It is essentially what the state of law was in 1789, when the Constitution was ratified, and the modern United States came into existence. The Oklahoma legislature adjourned on 24 May, 2019. According to Ballotpedia, a referendum, called a veto referendum, could...

The bill had passed the Senate unanimously on March 6th, 2018.  Constitutional Carry was part a bill removing wildlife refuges as gun free zones. The amendment process allowed the bill to bypass Senate committees that had blocked Constitutional Carry in the past. On 2 May 2018, the Oklahoma Senate passed Constitutional Carry again.  The popular bill had passed both the House and the Senate by veto-proof margins. It passed the Senate on a 33-8 vote.On 11 May of 2018, Governor...

    A woman who taught dangerous, self-induced abortions and referred women to back alley abortionists prior to Roe v. Wade is being celebrated as a heroine in modern America.Slate recently profiled 90-year-old Patricia Maginnis, an early leader of the pro-abortion movement in America.  Maginnis taught classes on self-induce abortions and started an “underground railroad” of abortionists to refer women to in the 1960s. She also advocated for legalizing abortion on demand, supposedly to protect women from the dangerous abortions that she also was promoting.Earlier this year, the National Women’s History Alliance recognized her as an “unsung hero in the fight for...

    The U.S. Coast Guard says it “removed” a member from its Hurricane Florence response team Friday after he made an “OK” hand gesture on live TV that the service branch deemed “offensive.” The unidentified team member was caught looking into the camera and then swiftly making the hand gesture, prompting a backlash on social media. The hand signal was seen in the background of MSNBC’s live interview with Sector Charleston Commanding Officer Capt. John Reed, who was providing an update on actions taken by the Coast Guard in response to Hurricane Florence. Many social media users called for the firing...

    **** Warning **** Website has font big enough to read from mars The legalization of medical marijuana comes with a big issue for Oklahoma's gun owners. If you want to get medical marijuana, you can't own or buy a gun. Federal law prohibits any person who is an "unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance" from possessing firearms or ammunition. The law covers everything from owning, shipping, transporting or receiving any firearms or ammunition. There are no exceptions in the law for medical marijuana users. Some gun shop owners we talked to are a little concerned. 6/27/2018 Related...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma voters on Tuesday backed the medicinal use of marijuana, overcoming a late opposition campaign from law enforcement and business, faith and political leaders. State Question 788 , the result of an activist-led signature drive launched more than two years ago, makes it legal to grow, sell and use marijuana for medicinal purposes. The proposed law outlines no qualifying conditions, which would allow physicians to authorize its use for a broad range of ailments — a fact that sparked bitter opposition, particularly from law enforcement. Under the proposed law, a two-year medical marijuana license would allow...
