It would appear as though the spark generated in Washington state has started smoldering here. Yes, even the most conservative state in this union has it's share of hand-wringing, bed-wetting, simple minded liberals. Enjoy the read:

The Oklahoman, Feb. 17th
Anyone with a license to carry a handgun should be allowed to take the weapon into “the people’s Capitol,” a state legislator said.
“It’s our God-given right and our constitutional right,” said Rep. John Bennett, R-Salisaw, who has filed legislation to allow weapons to be brought into the Capitol.
Bennett’s bill has been assigned to the House Public Safety Committee, but has not been set for a hearing.

A similar bill was approved in the House Judiciary Committee last year, but the proposal did not reach the full House.
Security is tight at the Capitol, with visitors having to go through metal detectors and send bags, cellphones, and at times, even pocket change through an X-ray machine.
“I’m a believer in the Second Amendment, but there are reservations about it, “ including the sergeants at arms who guard the House and Senate chambers, Said Rep. Mike Christian, R-Oklahoma City, Chairman of the Public Safety Panel.

Lawmakers Criticize Bill
Christian said he wants to hear from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, which provides security for the Capitol and the governor.
Highway patrol spokesman Capt. Paul Timmons declined comment and Alex Weintz, a spokesman for Gov. Mary Fallin, said the office hadn’t reviewed the proposal.

Those who are armed would be allowed through security checkpoints after presenting a valid handgun license. Capitol guards would not be allowed “to remove or inspect any weapon or restrain any person carrying a properly concealed loaded or unloaded handgun without probable cause that a crime has been committed,” according to the measure.

Bennett said he is not worried that safety inside the Capitol would be compromised.
“There’s always a level of what if out there. But until they do … something illegal that would take away the right to be licensed, they should be able to carry,” Bennett said. “The right to defend ourselves doesn’t stop at the Capitol doors and the right to carry doesn’t stop at the Capitol doors.”

Rep. Richard Morrissette, D-Oklahoma City, opposed last year’s bill, asking, “Why are we doing this? Are you serious?” He said he hadn’t seen this year’s version.

Rep. Emily Virgin, D-Norman, voted against the bill that passed out the Judiciary Committee in 2014 and said she will oppose any bill allowing guns inside the building, saying some legislation can “incite” high emotions and passions. “It’s just not a good place for people to be carrying firearms,” Virgin said. “We have security at the Capitol at all times, we have the highway patrol there who always carry firearms,” Virgin said. “I would prefer firearms to be in the hands of professionals, trained law enforcement.” It wasn’t clear why the current bill was assigned to the Public Safety committee, rather than the Judiciary Committee, but Virgin said the move seems appropriate. “It probably feels more like a natural fit in public safety. I’m not sure why it was in Judiciary last year.”

Christian said he planned to discuss the bill with Bennett.

Mike..your speech WILL go down in the annuls of the Framers. IN are the ONLY one I have seen in 10 years of searching, who physically carries the the true flag of freedom. God bless you sir. If I had the financial freedom to support, I would be right behind you. In the meantime, I spread your speech as far and wide as I can possibly do, for you sir..are one of the last beacons of REAL freedom. America's history WILL reflect your efforts. God bless you.


It's time for men of God to stop avoiding politics ! And being afraid of offending weak minded people.
It's time for men of God to stand for truth and righteousness just as our fore fathers did. It's time the passion for what's right, and the rule of law to come into view on the plane of truth and reason !
