Well, wouldn’t yah know, we couldn’t get to ’em all. So here are more.
Several bills seek to prohibit the use of “foreign” (read: Sharia) law in court. Speaking of foreigners, a proposal by Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma, House Bill 1866, would require that a charter school’s board members and top administrators be U.S. citizens.
An avalanche of measures deals with a range of gun rights, including a number that would let people carry loaded firearms in their vehicle — a basic no-no stressed in most gun-safety courses.
Then there’s HB 1775 by Rep. Todd Russ, R-Cordell, which would allow convicted felons to own a gun once they complete their sentence. Rep. Steve Vaughan, R-Ponca City, goes further by allowing anyone with a conviction of assault and battery that “caused serious physical injury to the victim” to have a concealed-carry permit.
As long as we’re talking about guns, let’s talk schools. Kern has authored the Parents’ Rights Act, which would let parents withdraw their kids from class if they deem any of the curriculum “harmful,” defined as material that “questions beliefs or practices in sex, morality or religion.”
HB 674 by Rep. Gus Blackwell, R-Laverne, would make it illegal to penalize students in science class for giving answers based on their beliefs, likely ensuring that “God did it” will be to essay questions what “C” is to multiple choice exams.
And finally, Rep. Emily Virgin, D-Norman, has introduced legislation that lays out the purpose of sex education classes. We don’t know whether to snicker or cry that it took the only Virgin in the Legislature to point out why sex ed is necessary.
Damn, but we are childish.
