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.

Tim Tebow Finds a Higher Calling in Pro-Life Causes Rather than Sports Trophies

Published

NRL News Today reported on Kansans for Life annual Valentine’s Day banquet held earlier this month.

Nearly 1,200 people were in attendance at this event.

The theme of this event was LIV-ing in victory, which referred to Super Bowl LIV.

Lamar Hunt, Jr., one of the owners of the Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, was the Master of Ceremonies for the event. In his opening remarks, he said:

I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Really listen in and tune in.

Then Hunt said, “Please do something about it. Pray. Take action. If you don’t know what to do, ask somebody. Place this as a major priority in your life.”

Hunt concluded by saying that he often heard the phrase “Live in victory” from another resident at the retirement home where he visits his mother.

The main highlight of that evening was the keynote speech by Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

“It is such an honor to be here,” Tebow said as he thanked the other speakers coming before him for their work to protect the unborn.

Tebow praised Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”

“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” Tebow remarked. He continued, “One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say Oh my gosh what are you going to be known for? Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”

Tebow asserted that Kansans for Life is not a philanthropy.

It’s a rescue mission. You know why we call it a rescue mission? Because when we say that, it puts a timeline on it.

When’s the last time you heard a rescue mission taking place in a month or a few years. No, a rescue mission means now. It gives you a sense of urgency. It says we have to go not because it’s our time, but because it’s their time. … I have to live a sense of urgency because while I might have time, they don’t.

Later, Tebow turned toward Hunt and Chiefs punter, Dustin Colquitt, who was also attending the event, he told them it was “awesome they won the Super Bowl.”

“It’s amazing. What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.” That platform, Tebow declared, can be used to support the pro-life movement.

“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life. And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor,” Tebow said.

Tebow jokingly recounted that as the baby of a family of 5 siblings, he was called “Timmy the tumor” by his siblings.

On a more serious note, Tebow said, “to make a long story short, when I was born, they found out the placenta wasn’t actually attached. So, the doctor looked at my mom after 37 years of being a doctor and said, ‘This is the biggest miracle I’ve ever seen because I’m not sure how he’s alive.’ … I’m so grateful that my mom trusted God with my life and her life.”

In 1986, Tebow’s father, Robert, begged the Lord to give him one more child. His father said, “I prayed for a preacher and got a quarterback.”

Tebow finished the event by stating that, “What you’re doing here matters. You’re fighting for life. You’re fighting for people that can’t fight for themselves. And my question to you is: Are you willing to stand up in the face of persecution, in the face of adversity, in the face of criticism, when other people are going to say it’s not worth it, when other people won’t stand beside you? Maybe not everybody is going to be with you. Will you stand up for what’s right?”
