O-K for 2nd Amendment in Oklahoma

As the on-going debate over control/firearms owners' right continues, the Associated Press has a story that indicates how much Oklahoma believes in the constitutional right to own firearms.
The AP notes: Oklahoma now has an official "Second Amendment Day" in the state. Gov. Mary Fallin on Thursday signed a bill designating June 28 of each year as "Second Amendment Day" in Oklahoma.
Just how all of this plays out in Ohio is open for discussion as the state continues to ponder whether to allow  a licensed concealed carry permit holder the right to take a weapon inside an establishment where alcohol is severed so long as that person does not drink.
