    But it's been watered down to only make exceptions for active duty military, honorably discharged veterans, and CLEET certified individuals.

    The best part? Republicans watered it down. But here's the line from CNN:

    Exactly. So there really is nothing to deter another NIU or VT situation from happening. I doubt they will be scared away by the idea that there is a very slight chance that a National Guard or Military personel might be on the campus. Way to accomplish nothing Oklahoma government.

    Ugh. I had high hopes for that one. Oklahoma's a very pro-gun state..i'm surprised our politicians watered it down so much.

    I'm surprised it was the republicans who did so. It is very scary when even our republicans are watering down such an obviuosly beneficial pro gun bill.

    Sucks that it was watered down, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. Next year go for all concealed weapons holders as well. BTW is it possible to obtain the following without actually being a LEO?

    others with firearms training certified by the Council on Law Enforcement Education who hold a state concealed weapons license

    Sounds like a good course to take anyways...

    And there is the provision that honourably discharged vets would also qualify, that's a lot of folks.

    Actually taken as a whole I think it's almost a good bill especially if anyone with a CCW can take the firearms certification, it's 1000% better than what we have in Florida.

    Tulsa World

    I'm glad the poll is in "our" favor, but I hate how it is worded.

    Seems like a partial victory. All it needs now, perhaps in the next session, is to include "all ccw holders." I think the hard part is already done.

    I just don't get why administrators oppose guns on campus. They seem to encourage EVERYTHING else. Why should something as common as a gun be excluded when everything else being force-fed to us? As a student in Utah, I carry a gun on campus every day. And in each of my classes, i have seen at least one other person carrying (trendy clothes these days don't really help conceal a gun), and nobody's been shot yet. It really pisses me off when such simple logic escapes the PhD's.

    because guns are bad 'mkay:neener:


    This is a step in the right direction. Allowing Guardsmen, Reservists, and Veterans to carry concealed will dramatically decrease the lethality of a gunman. People seem to forget that many folks join the reserves to help pay for school. When I was in school not only was I in the military but it seemed like atleast one other person in every class was in the guard, Reserves, or was a vet, Police Officer etc.

    I believe the Republicans watered it down because they knew it had a better chance of passing if they did so. This will set a precedent in our state. Even though it isn't as "liberal" as some would like, it really is better than nothing.

    If this passes the state senate and Governor Henry signs it, I may have to go back to college. :) Those notification letters to college presidents will be fun to write. :D

    Sounds like a step in the right direction, but with everything, there may have to be some measures to consider in allowing a larger number of persons to carry in that environment.
