On Wednesday, February 28, 2019, Oklahoma became the 15th Constitutional Carry state with Governor Kevin Stitt’s signing of House Bill 2597.
By signing HB 2597, Oklahoma now joins Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Vermont as the only states in the country that treat the Second Amendment as an individual’s carry permit.
Two attempts were all that Oklahoma needed to restore gun rights. Previous Governor Mary Fallin vetoed Constitutional Carry against the Oklahoma state legislature’s will.
Following Constitutional Carry’s disappointing demise in 2018, Stitt campaigned on making it a point to sign Constitutional Carry into law and he delivered accordingly.
However, Stitt had plenty of support on the ground.
State Senator Natham Dahm has been a fervent Constitutional Carry champion in the Oklahoma legislature over the past few years.
Dahm made his constitutionalist views clear:
“The core function of government should be protecting fundamental rights.”
The Senator then commented:
“It is encouraging to see the Legislature pass bills that restore our rights.”
With gun control gaining a second wind in state legislatures across the nation following the Las Vegas shooting, Oklahoma’s decision to restore gun rights is a welcome development.
Not all is doom and gloom in the United States.
There are plenty of fights like Constitutional Carry where liberty-lovers can make a difference.
The U.S. has a federalist system for a reason. Our states legislatures and municipalities are where we can get good policies implemented when the federal government lags behind.
The battle to restore gun rights starts locally. There is no reason for us to remain on the sidelines any longer.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Makes Attempt to Nab Traitorous Leakers
On July 12, 2020, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows announced that he gave several pieces of information to suspected leakers.
According to Axios, Meadows has proceeded to do this “to reporters — a trap that would confirm his suspicions.”
“Meadows told me he was doing that,” commented one former White House official. “I don’t know if it ever worked.”
The Trump administration has been plagued with leaks since day one. Meadows has taken it upon himself to find the leakers and expose them for subverting President Trump’s agenda.
One leak that recently infuriated Trump was involved an alleged Russian plot to pay the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers.
Trump was also furious when the New York Times revealed that the Secret Service took him down to the bunker while riots raged outside the White House.
Although Meadows has not caught any high-profile leakers so far, a source close to Meadows said he is “focused on national security leaks and could care less about the palace intrigue stories.”
However, during a recent podcast with Ted Cruz, Meadows revealed that they discovered and fired a federal employee who was caught leaking information about a White House social media executive order.
Trump will ultimately need to get his house in order if he wants to keep his agenda coherent and intact.
One of the overarching themes of the Trump administration has been in its inability to tame subversive advisers and other actors within the administration.
This allows for Trump’s America First agenda to be derailed while legacy institutions like the defense industry benefit greatly.
D.C. is in desperate need of a cleanse and it starts within the executive branch.
