The gun control movement doesn’t easily admit defeat. We can squash bad bills one year, but we know they’re coming back the next legislative session. Even when courts tell gun control advocates that they’re in the wrong, they continue to pursue the same strategies in other jurisdictions, hoping that they can get their agenda approved somewhere and then build on that success. It’s a strategy that relies on the long game of incremental change while constantly pushing for moments that will allow them to take a big swipe at our rights.
In Oklahoma, an anti-gun lawmaker is once again vowing take a big swipe and undo the state’s constitutional carry law which went into effect last year, despite the fact that his attempt to remove the law via a referendum ended in an abysmal failure just a few months ago.
State Rep. Jason Lowe of Oklahoma City and members of the group Moms Demand Action helped launch the initiative petition on Monday.
Once the petition has been processed, supporters will have 90 days to gather the roughly 95,000 signatures needed to put the question on the ballot.
