First Sally Kern, Now Guns–You’re doin’ fine Oklahoma!


Oklahoma is doing its best to keep Oklahoma firm on its constitutional  and moral grounding–sure there’s more work to do—lots of good things in the works and being passed in the state legislator…..and several conservatives who have stood their ground on the issues!

First, last week Sally Kern (state representative) did a great job of getting the left’s hate speech “sweeping down the plains” with her comments about gays.   She has stood her ground on her beliefs as she should! (Although I might have re-worded or left out comparisons regarding terrorism–it was totally misconstrued–most of what she said was clearly factual…..it’s been covered on this blog here and here)

Now the latest bill from the State House is a big step forward in protecting students on college campuses in the state.

……From Virginia Tech to Northern Illinois, guns rights advocates are calling for students to be allowed to have guns on a college campus. ……

Gaunder is one of fifty OSU students who support House Bill 2513. The bill would allow students at public universities, who have a concealed weapons permit, to bring those guns on campus.

“It doesn’t make any sense to say you can’t carry here because it’s a different area. We’re trained, we’re responsible and we’ve proven that,” said Gaunder.

Doesn’t it seem ridiculous to have campuses labeled “gun-free” zones?  That is just asking for a crazed, depressed, suicidal gunmen to invade that area….what’s to lose for the gunman?….no guns and victims can’t defend themselves…that’s been played out at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University

Other noteworthy positives coming from the state of Oklahoma’s legislature:

Requiring ID’s in order to vote (approved by Senate on way to house)

Oklahoma or US Flags flying at state agencies and public schools must be made in America – bill heading to House (Did you know that $5.3 million dollars  worth of flags were imported from other countries in 2006?)

 This state is at least showing some common sense on big and small issues….and some legislators seem to be doing a fine job not cowering and cracking under the pressure of politically correct thinking…..!

(sing)We’re only sayin’ you’re doin’ fine, Oklahoma….Oklahoma….O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A….Oklahoma….OK!

  2. Which part of, HATE SPEECH LEADS TO HATE CRIMES, don’t you understand? Sally Kern is a moron and a bigot. In other words, your typical Republican.

  3. Monty,
    Not sure where you get your vast research on Hate Speech=Hate Crimes. (Hate Crime is a cute little phrase that means “people who kill gay people deserve a bigger punishment than if they killed a straight man”)

    In any case, if it were true, George W. Bush, would have been dead long ago—-
    With the hate speech flowing like a river from their mouths the last 7 years, your self-righteous, power grabbing, Bush-Deranged Syndrome Democrat party would have shot him dead the first month in office.
    (If I had to guess, you are probably wishing they would have…..what does that make you?)
