More firearm legislation is headed to the Oklahoma House for a vote. House Bill (HB-3069) would grant municipalities the authority to allow city employees to carry concealed firearms while at work or on duty. The bill would amend various prohibited locations and properties that are currently restricted such as properties, buildings, structures, and office space that is owned by the city which does business with the public.

The primary focus of the bill is directed at prohibited areas that restrict the carrying of concealed weapons. Here's the official introduction to (HB-3069) that details the proposed changes: "An Act relating to firearms; amending 21 O.S. 2021, Section 1277, which relates to the unlawful carry of firearms in certain places; removing references to federally owned buildings and properties; authorizing municipalities to allow for the carry of concealed firearms by municipal officials or employees; providing eligibility requirements; prohibiting the carrying of firearms at firearm-prohibited locations; defining term; providing construing provision related to the carrying of firearms by municipal officials or employees; and declaring an emergency."

You can click here to read and review (HB-3069) in its entirety. Now nothing in the new bill requires city governments to change and/or amend the current policies or laws regarding concealed weapons on city property or the carrying of concealed weapons by city employees. All the new bill does is give cities the option to allow their employees to carry concealed if they so choose. It's up to each individual city to decide what they want to do. That should ease some of the ridiculous and baseless concerns of Karens and Chads.

It's no surprise to anyone who knows me that I think every law-abiding citizen who meets all the "legal" requirements, which includes city employees, should absolutely have the right to carry a concealed firearm while on the job, or anywhere else for that matter where it's permitted as outlined in the Oklahoma SDA (Self Defense Act). I'm sure all the usual naysayers will come out in opposition to (HB-3069) they probably already have. I do not understand why this is even a debate. Why would anyone have an issue with a law-abiding citizen who decides to carry a firearm to protect themselves and others? It makes no sense, at least to me. It's the criminals you should be concerned with, not law-abiding gun owners. But that's the world we live in.

Sadly all too often those who oppose gun rights and continue to champion anti-gun agendas would rather persecute citizens, instead of prosecuting criminals. These days the bad guys already have guns, but the good guys are treated like bad guys by so-called polite society for wanting to do the same and even the odds. That's absolutely crazy in my opinion, but that's the reality of what we're dealing with. I've often said that any business, city, or other entity that restricts, more like "Infringes" on my right to keep and bear arms and defend myself and others is 100% responsible for my safety and wellbeing along with everyone else's.

In other words, if I'm somewhere that I'm unable to carry and something happens they should be held 100% accountable and liable for any injuries, damage, or deaths that occur due to their anti-gun policies and gun control agenda. After all, if it weren't for them I would have had the means to protect myself and others. They choose to disarm me and place me in a position of defenselessness, so it's 100% their fault. But that's just my opinion and we're all entitled to them, at least we used to be anyway. So how about you? What are your opinions on this new bill? Should cities have the option to allow their city employees to carry concealed firearms while at work? Take the quick poll below and let us know your thoughts on all this.
