OK House passes 'Constitutional Carry'

I hope this makes it through the OK Senate. It appears that Governor Mary Fallin will sign it.

If it passes, Texas may try to 'outdo' them by passing something even better. It is going to make policemen nervous for a while, but should make them feel better, in the long run.

    I will be traveling to OK soon, anybody local to Owasso or there abouts and what is the deal with carry reciprocity there?

    Why? Don't you know there's Oklahomans there?

    That's Osage Indian territory - better take a repeating rifle and ride a fast horse.

    Well, I will be attending the wiener dog races, I need someone to steer me through what to wear to such an event and how to bet on said wiener dogs. Apparently they serve beer too.

    If they are anything like our Ojibwe's, they will just ignore this Q-tip.

    I had a blast in OK, 12 hours of driving today, not so much. It was supposed to be a Chihuahua race, did not happen this year unfortunately

    So, without the races, what did you find to do?

    I grew up with many trips to OK, where most of my relatives lived, and I was very content in the rural atmosphere. I never felt like a visitor, so I'm curious about what visitors from the north find appealing about it.

    We were in Tulsa by way of Owasso. It was 80 and DRY, felt pretty good compared to 80 and humid in MN. Folks were very nice, service was good and folks engaged us I am sure because of our "accents". Roads were clean and well maintained, drivers were not too bad, tollways blowed though. No bugs that I encountered and we were at an outdoor wedding in Broken Arrow next to a pond. Excellent BBQ and Mexican cuisine. We went to the Aquarium and that was nice and well maintained. Went Downtown to the Cinco de Mayo event on a blocked off street and were entertained by Luchadores (wrestlers), huge men, the best was a guy in a pig mask that went by Psycho Sooee. Very impressive public schools buildings and facilities. Lots of churches, folks seem very genuine in that respect. It was pretty green when we were there, my BIL said it was quite a bit different terrain 20 miles to the west.

    Yeah man I hope it passes. Then Texas will almost definitely follow suit.

    The bill has passed the OK Senate as well, and now sits on the desk of Governor Mary Fallin. What is she waiting for?

    We have had a very dry winter and spring. So far the humidity has not been terribly high and just one or two days at a time. 

    How craptacular are your roads in the Great White North that the roads in and around Tulsa seem good? 

    Toll roads suck. 

    Been too too cold until just recently for bugs. Come back next month, the best skeeter rodeos are in June and July. Vicious bastards. 

    The Tulsa Aquarium is awesome. I try to avoid downtown at all costs, really any downtown. 

    You ou were in “Green Country”. West into Osage County there is lots more grassland. Still hilly but far fewer trees. West of Osage County it flattens out and turns to crop land. 

    I live a couple hundred miles West of Owasso, in the Cherokee Strip. It could almost be another planet. 
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Dude. Our mosquitoes ain't got **** on northern skeeters. Those bastards steal babies at night if you leave the window open.

    She was probably waiting for it to fail in the Senate, thereby avoiding a controversy that forces her to evaluate which precincts she needs to please, to be re-elected. :)

    Sounds like a good trip to me.

    The Cinco de Mayo celebration made me recall a San Antonio 'adventure' we had, many years ago (circa 1980). My wife and I, and four other couples were in the area to ride the rapids on the Guadalupe River, at New Braunfels, and we ventured into San Antonio for a good Mexican resturant. We got swept up into the Budweiser Festival and ended up dancing in the streets to Mariachi bands, and drinking large quantities of many local beverages (not necessarily Budweiser), About midnight, we noticed that we were the only gringos still standing, but we were treated fine, anyway. Those folks knew how to party.

    Wrong! She vetoed it.
  • TeachTeach Senior Member Posts: 18,141 Senior Member
    I suppose she's tired of being governor, right?  Or maybe she's "term-limited" and doesn't have to worry about getting elected again?

    The bill passed the OK house just over 67% of the vote, and the Senate with over 78%. Enough for an override - if they can all stick together. 


    Not likely. Democrats can always be counted on to misgovern, Republicans to not govern. Alas.
