I thought maybe someone in this forum would like to respond to this hit piece from the Norman Paper.
"NORMAN ó Editor, The Transcript:
I am a supporter of the Second Amendment of the Constitution. However, recent judgment by our state leaders to support the open carry laws leads me to believe someone has a couple of pages stuck together.
I often wonder how common sense has become so rare that one could bottle and sell it. Itís quite apparent some leaders donít support our law enforcement officers and their safety.
This job has enough stress without facing these John Wayne want-a-beís every time they make a traffic stop. ďIntimidation:Ē Do you know the meaning of the word? Thatís what gangs and militias live on."
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.
Politicians should serve two terms, one in office and one in prison.(borrowed from RioKid)
I kept waiting for the author to put forth a reason why he believes that Open Carry is somehow more dangerous than Concealed Carry but he never got there. It was pure emotional drivel.
I have not been keeping up with what is going on in OK but found that Gem when reading about a shooting and it was listed under the Suggested Articles to check out.
So he's a LEO.This job has enough stress
The word is "wannabe".facing these John Wayne want-a-be’s every time they make a traffic stop
And again with the insults - presuming that all of us want to act like a fictional cowboy & will somehow endanger LEOs during an interaction.
So he admits that cops carry openly for intimidation.“Intimidation”
More insults & generalizations.That’s what gangs and militias live on.
Irrelevant to the discussion at hand.I personally know a few seniors who have permits for weapons and they can’t hit their own toilet, much less a target.
OC /= shooting
In fact, most DGUs don't involve shooting.
Besides, is he really saying he'd prefer those infirm elderly people he vulnerable to attack?
What problem? What mistakes?Enough mistakes are made without adding to the problem.
If people like him keep fighting these common-sense gun law reforms, yes.Must we see more lives lost because of our absence of common sense?
But what deaths is he referring to that were caused by OC & could have been prevented by cc?

Wow...that guy is the editor of a newspaper? That was one of the most poorly written editorials I've read in awhile. Look at this "paragraph":
Scary...I can live with the concealed weapons law. However I personally know a few seniors who have permits for weapons and they canít hit their own toilet, much less a target.
Total ignorance: an Obama supporter's stock in trade
I've been following what is going on in OK because when I retire from the Army we will be going to my wife's land in Cache. Being here in Colorado certainly has spoiled me because you can OC anywhere except Denver. Hope they get this fixed in the next 5 years.
When I was in the Navy I learned the difference between a sea story and a fairy tale, one begins "once upon a time" and the other, "now this is no shiite." What is a story called that begins, "I support the 2A, BUT ..."? That's the way they all start!
Silly, hysterical generalizations and projection... All the usual. I carry both OC and CC. I'm over 65. I could so hit my toilet... but then where would I pee?
Why do we waste our time on such silly twits anyway.
But, in the end, I live and therefore I am. I donít need any other personís permission to live or defend myself. I donít need anyoneís vetting of my intentions or sanity, nor approval for the self defense tool I choose or how I carry it.
I donít NEED to explain myself. I donít NEED any reasons at all.
When I was a sailor I learned the difference between a sea story and a fairy tale, one began 'once upon a time,' and the other began differently. What tale begins, "I am a supporter of the Second Amendment of the Constitution. However, ..."?
About the Second Amendment, which part of "shall not be infringed" confuses commonsensical Jim Barger? That leaders do not support law enforcement is only commonsensical given the democratic prevailing wind in government and education. Our police are no longer peace officers, but paramilitary law enforcement agents uncaring of rights.
Intimidation and gangs, yes, and paramilitary law enforcers are gangsters no different.
Good people ought to be armed as they will, with wits and Guns and the Truth. Yes, Bitter Clingers.

Editor, The Transcript:
It is very saddening to continually read about our legislators pushing for ďmore guns on the hipĒ legislation.
The only, I repeat ďthe only,Ē reason the gun was invented was to kill.
Anyone who buys, steals, borrows or possesses a gun must have in their mind somewhere the plan to kill something.
Therefore, anyone who does, for whatever reason, take another personís life should be charged with premeditated murder and suffer the consequences. Maybe we should also go back to lynch mobs mentality.
