    Today's Oklahoma Petition Alert (May 21, 2010):

    SUBJECT: Urge AWOL & Turncoat legislators to override open carry veto!

    You're receiving this email because you support the Petition for Open
    Carry in Oklahoma at http://www.petitiononline.com/oc4ok/petition.html.

    House Representative Rex Duncan has stated that he may make another
    attempt to override the Governor's veto of HB3354, see
    http://newsok.com/article/3462793.

    Here's the deal - the open carry bill passed by veto proof majorities in
    both houses. But after Governor Brad "Veto Happy" Henry vetoed the
    bill, 15 representatives changed their vote or refused to vote at all for the
    bill!

    It's one thing for a legislator to stand up and vote anti-gun - that's
    at least honest. But its a whole 'nother thing to play games and tricks with the people's right to arms - to hide your vote, duck your vote, and otherwise shirk
    their duty to take a stand and cast a recorded vote.

    Adding insult to injury, incredibly, Representative *Glenn Bud
    Smithson*(D-Sallisaw) called open carry supporters COWARDS, see
    http://newsok.com/open-carry-weapon-...ad_story_title,
    but then turned around and REFUSED to even stand up and cast a vote on
    the veto override matter!


    *TURNCOATs - Changed Vote* from YEA on original vote to NAY on override
    vote -
    Auffet ( D) johnauffet@okhouse.gov (405) 557-7394

    Voting record and contact information can be found at
    http://www.ok.gov]

    The good news is we only need 3 more votes to save the open carry bill.
    However, time is short!

    *Action Item #1*: If YOUR personal representative is on the TURNCOAT or
    AWOL lists, contact them - email, phone, and in person if you can - go
    to their office and **POLITELY** request to see him on this matter and urge
    him to vote correctly and let Oklahoma join the 43 other States that enjoy
    Open Carry in accordance with the Founders' intent! Bring your friends and
    family - make it a freedom delegation!

    *Action Item #2: Email the entire list of TURNCOATs and AWOLs!*

    Make their Blackberries' inbox crack like machine gun fire!

    SUBJECT: Urge your legislators to override the open carry bill veto!

    Dear Representative:

    I am highly distressed that you either (1) changed your vote on the open
    carry bill, or (2) refused to vote at all, when the time came to override
    the veto.

    Another veto override vote will take place soon.

    Take a stand! There is no reason why Oklahomans cannot be trusted to
    become residents of the 44th open carry state.

    This bill is very important to me and many Oklahoma gun owners.

    We will remember what you do.

    Sincerely,
    YOUR NAME
    YOUR ADDRESS

    He trying to paint you as the reason for not passing pro gun bills. What an asshat. That's the impression I get from his reply.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
