Ramblings from an ex-squid on politics, religion, current events, and whatever else catches my attention.

  • Quotes of Note…

    "Anyone who clings to the historically untrue--and thoroughly immoral-- doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The Ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more disputes in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." -Robert Heinlein

The Unpossible Crime

Posted by emeraldgryphon on Tuesday, 19 May 2009

Via SayUncle:

2 people shot at a violence prevention rally in a city park in Oklahoma City. The problem here is that this is an unpossible crime, since carrying a weapon in a public park is illegal in Oklahoma. Since there is a law against it, it can’t happen, right? Thats why we need to keep places like parks and schools prohibited (For the Children!!) so that this cant happen, right? 

/sarc off

Simple minded (but oh-so well meaning!) idiots prevent people who choose to arm themselves and train to protect their families from carrying at city parks. Therefore, the only people carrying at a city park are CRIMINALS, fer chrissake! And this is what you get!





EDIT: Well, thanks to commenter ka on SayUncle, i went back and re-read the statute. OK statute 21-1277 Section A is what limits carry locations. Section B is exceptions. Parks are in Section B, so they are perfectly legal to carry in. I somehow missed the section change. As they tell me, Reading Is Fundamental !(lol)
