A grassroots advocacy group, Moms Demand Action, pushes for gun-buying restrictions in the Second Amendment bastion of Oklahoma.


News

Mark Beutler
Oklahoma might seem an unlikely place for a fledgling organization of gun-control advocates, but a grassroots effort under way in the state is calling for stronger gun laws.

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Commentary

Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.

In a funny little piece of legislature proposed by her, it would make it illegal for teachers to punish children for having weapons on their minds and indulging in playtime activities such as drawing a gun, using fingers or hands in the shape of a gun or making gun noises.

The (not so awful) truth


CFN

Gazette staff
You know what’s fun? Debunking crazy conspiracy theories. Like, have you heard the one about the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stockpiling ammunition in order to keep them out of the hands of civilians? Because, you know, Obama is a secret communist who’s going to take all our guns away?

Gazette staff
If you think President Barack Obama is responsible for the increasingly aggressive actions of a capricious president halfway across the globe, you’re right, according to Oklahoma U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Tulsa.
