Due to the litigious nature of the democratic party, the Second Amendment may be one of the most misunderstood aspects of our Bill of Rights.
For many, especially those on the left, the Second Amdendment is the right to carry a firearm, of the government’s choosing, for purposes also of government’s choosing. In actuality, this is quite the opposite of the original intent of the right to bear arms.
The Founder actually included the Second Amendment to ensure that we would never be subject to the tyranny of a government looking to disarm us and exploit us. When the left makes expressing our right to bear arms more difficult than before, that is an infringement expressly forbidden by the Constitution.
Under that understanding of the impetus of the amendment, even the permitting process behind concealed carry laws is strictly unconstitutional and an infringement upon our Bill of Rights. Therefore, being not subject to the reality of the Constitution, any laws therefore adjusting our ability to carry a firearm as simply null and void.
But, thanks to the progressive, bleeding heart liberals, guns are feared and legislated into scarcity at times.
Oklahoma’s state government is beginning to realize the error of these liberal ways, and are rolling back the concept of concealed carry permitting to reflect the true and undeniable nature of the Second Amendment.
Oklahoma’s House Public Safety Committee passed legislation this week designed to end the concealed carry permit requirement in the state.Advertisement - story continues below
71 Republic reported that the legislation, HB 2579, would make Oklahoma the fifteenth permitless carry state. This would mean nearly a third of all states allow guns to be carried openly or concealed for self-defense based on the Second Amendment alone.
On May 12, 2018, Breitbart News reported that similar legislation passed the Oklahoma House on April 25, 2018, by a vote of 59-28. It passed the Senate on May 2, 2018, by a vote of 33 to 9. But then-Gov. Mary Fallin (R) vetoed it.
This common sense interpretation of the right to Constitutional Carry has been growing in popularity among Americans, and with good reason. The news is absolutely chocked-full of stories of “good guys with guns” saving innumerable lives with their bravery and quick thinking.
