Gun nuts and Rednecks rejoice! Far right Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin took time off of her personal crusade to send women back to the 1800′s long enough to sign a measure Tuesday allowing for guns to be carried openly.
“Oklahoma ranks near last in education, road conditions, health and workers rights, its true. But we got guns, freedom and God. It is like paradise. Praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Winchester.” said a Oklahoma City resident visiting the state capital on Tuesday.
“As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and a gun owner myself, I’m happy to sign this bill into law and grant law-abiding citizens the ability to openly carry firearms,” Fallin said. “Senate Bill 1733 sends a strong message that Oklahoma values the rights of its citizens to defend themselves, their family and their property. It does so in a responsible way, by requiring those citizens who choose to open carry to undergo both firearms training and a background check.”
Businesses may continue to ban firearms on their premises. SB 1733 prohibits carrying firearms on properties owned or leased by the city, state or federal government, at corrections facilities, in schools or on college campuses, at liquor stores and at sports arenas during sporting events.
