    As parents dropped off their children at schools in Okay, Oklahoma this week, they were greeted by signs warning them that the staff may be armed. Certain staffers are now legally able to carry guns in Oklahoma public schools, thanks to the passing of the Special Reserve School Resource Officer Act in May. One sign reads: 'ATTENTION: Please be aware that certain staff members at Okay Public Schools can be legally armed and may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.' School officials in Okay say they decided to put up signs advertising that new right in hopes...

    Police departments and leaders across the globe are taking a stand against a controversial group. Return of Kings is known as a group for “masculine men” and complains about the rise of feminism and the loss of ‘traditional sex roles.’ The group’s leader, Daryush Valizadeh, has written articles stating that rape should be legal on private property. Others in the group claim that women should not be allowed to vote, among other beliefs. The group announced recently that it would be holding 165 meetings in 43 countries as part of its ‘international meetup day’ on Feb. 6 at 8 p.m....

    NORMAN, Okla. - Four Norman, Oklahoma, high school wrestlers have been charged with felony rape for allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old and a 12-year-old, according to court documents CNN obtained Tuesday. Tanner Shane Shipman, 18, and three minors — two who are 17 and one who is 16 — are charged with raping the two victims on a school bus on January 9 while their Norman North High School wrestling team was returning home from a tournament in Pauls Valley. The district attorney viewed audio and video from the bus before charging the students.

    On January 18, Jerry Falwell, Jr. welcomed Donald Trump to Liberty University to speak in the school's chapel. As the college president who wrote the "this is not a daycare" article that received so much national attention recently, I have been asked by the media if I would be next: Will I be inviting Mr. Trump to Oklahoma Wesleyan University to speak in our chapel service? My answer has been simple and brief. No, I will not. In selecting speakers for Oklahoma Wesleyan, party affiliation and political positions do not matter. Personal conduct, public statements, theological integrity and moral consistency...

Considering that last year the Chamber of Commerce lobbied heavily against SB41 - an OK2A requested bill that would have closed a loophole some cities were using to restrict the lawful carry of a firearms at city festivals - the Chamber apparently is quite comfortable in the company of other anti-gunners like President Obama, Michael Bloomberg, David Boren, and the Brady Campaign. Senate Bill 1347 was filed...

In 1992, he was caught burning the bodies of aborted babies in a field, causing outrage. However, he was never charged with a crime… until he got caught in a vicious RU-486 scam. Patel pled guilty last October to lying to women about being pregnant so he could get their money. Now, he will never be able to practice medicine again and is a convicted felon. Authorities were originally tipped off when he performed an abortion on a woman who was...

However, the judge did uphold an Oklahoma Supreme Court order that stops the law from taking effect until the case is fully resolved, the AP reports.

    Oklahoma has seemingly given Donald Trump one of his smallest leads this primary season, as he only holds a 4 point advantage over Ted Cruz. The Republican primary campaign has effectively turned into a two man race at this point, with Marco Rubio a fairly distant 3rd place with 14% of the vote, just short of the 15% threshold required for delegate allocation. Other than Trump, Cruz, and Rubio, everyone else received a little under 20% of the total support, with 6% still undecided.

Like everyone else, Fiorina took her shoes off as she went through the security line. No one approached her as she moved through the security check or after at the terminal's sole sit-down restaurant, Earl of Sandwich, where she ate. Her modest travel is a stark contrast as Donald Trump and Ben Carson obtain Secret Service.

Those actions, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told reporters on Friday, weren't part of the original rescue mission plan, but were critical to its success. "I am immensely proud of this young man," Carter said adding that his thoughts and prayers go out to Wheeler's family.
