    Young Auctioneer Auctions off Guns The Wagoner County Oklahoma Sheriff's office held an auction of guns from its property room on 19 August, 2017.  For a segment of the gun auction, the auctioneer was a boy, about 12 years old. He does an excellent job.  You may have to scroll down the facebook page a bit to see the video. Link to facebook video: The firearms went for surprisingly low prices, compared to most gun auctions that I have seen. The Marlin .22 rifles went for about $100, and Browning patent Auto-5 type shotgun only brought $200. It is...

    On 19 May, 2017, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin signed into law another reform of Oklahoma firearms law. SB 397 removed another egregious discrimination against poor people exercising their Second Amendment rights. In Oklahoma, it is illegal to bear arms on buses used as public mass transportation. Most people who have sufficient means prefer to use private transportation. In most situations it is far more efficient, effective, and convenient to use individual transport.  But in some situations, such as in crowded urban centers where parking is expensive, time consuming, and hard to find, a great many people have to resort...

    The vast majority of defensive firearm uses involve the defensive display of the firearm. In some states, it is illegal to display a gun for defensive purposes without risking a felony. Mere display is considered the use of deadly force. Estimates of defensive gun uses vary form about 100,000 to 3 million each year(CDC pdf). Yet only 1,500 to 3,000 people are justifiably killed each year. About five to ten times that many are shot and end up hospitalized. About five to ten  times as many as are shot, are shot at, but missed.  The number of times when...

     Link to video of Sgt. Tuell At 1:15 a.m. on a cold December night, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, most people are not prowling other people's back yards, looking for trouble. But 32 year old Perry Wallace seems to have been doing exactly that. He jumped a fence to get into the back yard of a homeowner. The homeowner and his family (a girlfriend and four children) were at home. Then Perry made a big mistake. He tried to break into the home through the bedroom door, which led to the backyard.  The homeowner opened fire with his girlfriend's pistol, wounding Perry...
