Friday, Oklahoma joins the long list of states that now recognize a citizen's 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, removing an infringement that currently requires citizens pay to exercise such right.
The new law allows citizens at least 21 years old (18 and a member of the military) to carry a rifle, pistol or shotgun without having to have certified training nor pay for a permit. Those with felonies still cannot own nor possess firearms. Gun owners may still seek training and obtain licensing, but they are not forced to in order to access their rights.
When asked about the new law allowing citizens to such free access to their rights, Oklahoma Representative Jason Lowe said "This fight is far from over," at a news conference. "We believe this law is dangerous."
Lowe created a petition to put the upcoming law to a vote in August. Even with tens of thousands of signatures, it was not enough to move the petition forward by the August 29 deadline.
What do you think it would take for Maryland politicians to finally see "all men created equal" and allow citizens to exercise their right to keep & bear arms without tax and permission from the government?
