OklahomaÂ State Sen. Nathan Dahm filed Senate Bill 1473, a bill that would allow citizens over the age of 18 to open carry loaded or unloaded guns without a license for hunting and target shooting. The bill is making headlines, not because it’s particularly unique, or that it significantly promotes gun rights, but because of its title: theÂ Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act.
An Act relating to firearms; creating the PiersÂ Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear ArmsÂ Without Infringement Act; providing short title;Â amending 21 O.S. 2011, Section 289.6, as amended byÂ Section 11, Chapter 259, O.S.L. 2012 (21 O.S. Supp.Â 2013, Section 1289.6), which relates to conditionsÂ under which firearms may be carried; addingÂ condition; providing for noncodification; andÂ providing an effective date.
SB1473 is set to be introduced on February 3 – you can read the entire bill here. Needless to say, Piers Morgan is none too happy to have his name tied to this bill…not that anyone particularly cares what he thinks.
