Open carry arrives with a whimper in Oklahoma

Open carry arrived in Oklahoma without a hitch.

Spokesmen with police departments in Oklahoma City, Norman and Edmond said their dispatchers did not receive a single call from citizens concerned about firearms on Thursday, the first day for the law allowing people with a state-issued permit to openly carry certain handguns in public.

It feels like freedom to us; it feels very liberating, said Bryan Hull, who runs a towing service in downtown Oklahoma City and co-founded the Oklahoma Open Carry Association.

Hull and about two dozen other men and women celebrated the arrival of loosened gun restrictions by bringing their holstered weapons to breakfast shortly after midnight at Beverly's Pancake House on Northwest Expressway.

3. is that a serious question?

Just look at the states where it has been a nonissue. Open carry has always been legal in many states. For example, Wyoming never had a law against open carry even when concealed carry was very restricted. Funny thing, you can't conceal carry to a town council meeting but you can open carry. The reason being there never has been any restrictions, no one actually does, so no one thought to pass a restriction.

6. Lest we forget ...

 

... the shot that turned the tide in the "High Noon" shoot out was fired by a woman -- a pacifist woman.

12. Lon Chaney Jr. (as a retired sheriff) does a great cameo.

11. If Mormons were pacifists ...

 

... there wouldn't be any left. They were actively persecuted in the later-half of the 19th Century and many of it's followers were murdered in some of the worst religious persecution to ever taint American History.

Mormons relied on both G-d and firearms to protect them from those who could not tolerate their beliefs.
