'Piers Morgan' act would revoke need for gun license in Oklahoma
#1
Quote:A State Senator has filed legislation that he says would 'reaffirm Oklahomans' Second Amendment rights' by not requiring law-abiding citizens to obtain a gun license.

State Sen. Nathan Dahm filed Senate Bill 1473, or what he calls the "Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act".

The bill proposes to allow citizens over the age of 18 to open carry loaded or unloaded guns without a license for hunting and target shooting.

The bill would also cover military or law enforcement functions; for practice or performance for entertainment purposes; or for lawful self-defense purposes.

"The Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and yet when we require our citizens to jump through hoops, pay fees and undergo a process that presumes they're guilty of something until proven otherwise, their rights are being infringed upon," Dahm said in a press release.

"Senate Bill 1473 simply says Oklahomans can carry firearms in all the places currently allowed by law, but they will no longer be required to obtain a license to do so."

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Excellent!

I especially appreciate the name of the bill, given his prior actions.
