Help Thy Neighbor

Everyone who chooses to own and/or carry a firearm may one day be forced to make the decision to intervene (or to not intervene) in a fight or conflict between or among other people.

Exercising 2nd Amendment Rights at OU Basketball Game

On December 19, 2017, Don Spencer (President of the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association) purchased a ticket to the OU basketball game with the intention to attend the game while carrying a (legal) pocket knife into the basketball arena.

We have been receiving reports from OK2A members that OU security personnel have been forcing people to return to their vehicle(s) to store their pocket knives in their vehicles because of their restrictive policy regarding knives and other weapons....

Nonprofit Super PAC Gives Nevada "C-" On Gun Control

Following the Las Vegas attack, many are scrutinizing federal and state gun laws. The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence gave Nevada a C- on gun control.

Nevada does not require the registration of firearms, does not limit the number of firearms that may be purchased...
