According to a Norman Transcript report, Oklahoma gun control supporters are not happy about Constitutional Carry going into effect on November 1st.
After failing to put a Constitutional Carry repeal on the ballot, anti-gun advocates in the Sooner State are now spending their time handing out “firearms prohibited” window stickers to Oklahoma business owners who don’t want unlicensed customers carrying guns at their businesses.
This effort is meant to undermine the state’s new law which is only weeks away from going into effect. BLP reported on Oklahoma’s passage of this law in February, making it the 15th Constitutional Carry state at the time.
“We know that our businesses are allowed to prohibit guns on their property,” Kay Malan, a Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America activist based in Tulsa, said.
Under Constitutional Carry, any individual 21 and older without a felony conviction or a criminal rap sheet can carry a firearm without having to beg the government for a license. However, this bill does not allow people to brandish firearms nor does it change the venues where Oklahomans can legally carry a firearm. For example, Oklahomans will still be prohibited from carrying on college campuses.
For anti-gun activists like Malan, they believe that Constitutional Carry is still not a popular piece of legislation.
“I believe the majority of Oklahomans don’t want to see permitless carry take place in Oklahoma,” Malan asserted. “We know that the majority of people are for common-sense gun laws in Oklahoma.”
Malan conceded that her anti-gun cronies can’t stop the law from going into effect, but they are still looking at other options to move their anti-gun policies forward.
“We will definitely pursue every avenue,” she declared. “We are not giving up. We’re very concerned with what’s happened.”
Steve Emmons, the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Association of Chiefs of Police, expressed some concern to the changes in the state’s gun laws.
“At least with a license, we have a database of who the licensed people are, and we know they’ve been through some training,” Emmons said. “With constitutional carry, you’re taking those away.”
Don Spencer, the president of the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association, said there will be a gun rights rally outside the state Capitol at 10 a.m. on November 1. Spencer said that Oklahomans will “celebrate” the end of “112 years of the unconstitutional prohibition of Second Amendment rights.”
Its recent passage of Constitutional Carry will only bolster its pro-gun image.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
