Unfortunately, many liberals, including President Obama, do not. As governor, I will make sure that no one, whether its anti-gun activists or the president himself, infringes on our constitutional liberties or erodes the right to purchase and own firearms.
Furthermore, I believe that gun ownership rights in Oklahoma can and should be expanded. Gov. Brad Henry vetoed an "open carry" law that would have permitted responsible gun owners to carry weapons without concealing them. When I am governor, I will sign that bill into law and send a message that in Oklahoma, we mean business when it comes to the second amendment.
I am proud to have the support and endorsement of the National Rifle Association in the race for Oklahoma governor.
