Introduced by state senator Nathan Dahm, this legislation puts Oklahoma shoulder-to-shoulder with Wyoming and Texas by putting federal gun-grabbers in check.
The language of the legislation is clear: "Federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations, bans or registration requirements regarding firearms constitute an infringement on the individual right [to keep and bear arms] in the Constitution of the United States...and are hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma."
The legislation mentions the "intent" of America's "Founders" and the Constitution's "ratifiers," and sets forth the punishment for trying to enforce new gun control measures:
Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government or any employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction...shall be punished by imprisonment in the custody of the Department of Corrections not to exceed five (5) years.
After reading this legislation, only one word comes to mind--FREEDOM.
Send this to Obama and Biden!!
our AG is telling New Yorkers to come to Texas...so come on
Chris: we just might be moving to TX -- I so hope so.
come on dear, we got room
Twana, they should not stop there with this!
Well, nothing will get done if you don't contact those in your government. I just send an email with this from Oklahoma web site. I told all the Represantatives and Senators here in Florida on the Oath they took. I would say the people in Oklahoma contacted their Representatives and Senators with their concerns on DC's anit-gun control. All of us has to make our voice heard.
This is what I sent.
Florida needs a bill like SB548 and is obligated to protect Floridians from the Federal government’s gun (grab) control. This is why we voted you to office to protect our interest and way of life. Protecting us protects you. The 2nd Amendment was added to the Constitution for a reason like what’s happening. Remember the Oath you took. If you remember there was NO expiration date when you took your Oath and it’s for a lifetime.
I was talking to the owner of the Eufaula gun shop yesterday about this. He said he's hopeful that it doesn't get derailed by the obozominions in the house. Also said that for the first time in his 28 years, the gun shelves and racks are empty! And an active duty soldier came in to sell his two 22ga target rifles looking for more 5.56 ammo. He'll be going back to Afghanistan for his 4th tour in the Mideast, but he wants to make sure his family is well prepared in case the SHTF before he gets back again. Unfortunately the shop was out of it. I asked him if he'd checked the Checotah store yet, that they had a few cases last week. He did, and they didn't.
Any of you that think your local rep may not support and vote for OK SB548, get a push on! Make them understand how it will affect them in their next campaign.
I COMPLETELY AGREE AND HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN ASKED TO MOVE TO THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY BUT, I HAVE FAMILY OBLIGATIONS KEEPING ME FROM DOING SO AT THIS TIME. THE SIDES ARE POLARIZING. ALL WE CAN DO IS PREPARE AS BEST WE CAN. IF YOU ARE ABLE AND GOING, GOOD LUCK TO YOU. I AM ON THE NORTH SHORE ON CAPE ANN BUT AM HEADED INTO BOSTON FOR TOMORROW'S RALLY AT THE CAPITOL.
thank you for being there all of us Brian. tell them who "WE" are.
That is my intent and that of the other members who will attend the event enmasse from the Cape Ann Sportsman's Club of which I am a member. We will be law abiding and peaceful in our efforts but we are ALL aware that there is an element of risk and we accept that. Since this is a statewide effort, we should be in good company and in numbers sufficient to ward off those opposed should the necessity arise. We are reasonably SURE however, that any news coverage is likely to be edited to be deliberately deceiving and untrue as this is one of the most, if not the most liberal lunacies in this country. wish us luck!
Sent to my State legislators requesting duplcate action here in WA. How do you say "no" in Adult? A: "We'll see..." As in Will you pass this legislation? We'll see.......
Semper Vigilo, Fortis, Paratus et Fidelis
About 7-10 days ago I sent my state rep a letter on this, among others things I knew would not get addressed on this issue!
In part; Supposed "toughening" of anti-gun trafficking measures, but without doing anything about the man responsible for allowing more gun trafficking than any other American -- Attorney General Eric Holder (with his Fast and Furious program).
