Gun Control Activists are Still Grumpy about Oklahoma’s New Constitutional Carry Law

Published

on

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.”

Oklahoma is already one of the most pro-gun states in the country, with it being ranked 6th for best states for gun owners according to Guns & Ammo magazine.

Its recent passage of Constitutional Carry will only bolster its pro-gun image.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
