Okies take advantage of the Second Amendment

by American Firearms Review  |  published on November 21, 2012

Oklahoma’s open-carry law, which allows residents to overtly carry firearms, went into effect yesterday. NewsOK ran this inspiring article about Okies finally practicing their Second Amendment rights:

“It feels like freedom to us; it feels very liberating,” said Bryan Hull, who runs a towing service in downtown Oklahoma City and co-founded the Oklahoma Open Carry Association.

With pistols in their holsters, sipping sodas and seemingly split over whether lunch or breakfast was appropriate for the time of night, the conversation was strictly constitutional rights and self-defense at first. Gradually, the men forgot their guns and turned to catching up.

“I think a right not exercised is a right lost, and so open carry is more symbolic to me,” said Jon Muckleroy, an aircraft mechanic from Oklahoma City who dined on eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy with a Smith & Wesson M&P45 in his holster.

Oklahoma is now the fourteenth state to allow residents to carry firearms openly. Let’s hope the rest of the country will eventually follow suit.
