The new gun control measures, publicised by the US President Barack Obama on Wednesday, are likely to encounter sturdy legislative opposition in the state of Oklahoma as the ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act’ is moving through the state’s legislature. The ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act’ was introduced by the state’s Senator Nathan Dahm. The ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act’ threatens to incarcerate, for five years, any federal governmental official, who endeavours to enforce in Oklahoma the new gun control proposals of Barack Obama.
The ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act’ places the state, along with Wyoming and Texas, by threatening the imprisonment of federal ‘gun controllers.’
Barack Obama, who had delivered a gun control speech in the White House on Wednesday, had issued 23 ‘gun control’ executive orders, one of which was the termination of a ban on gun-violence research by a federal institution.
President Barack Obama’s gun control measures are unambiguously detested by the ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act.’ The Act remarks that federal laws, rules, regulations, orders and registration requirements vis-à-vis firearms constitute a violation on the personal right to keep and bear arms, which is assured by the US Constitution. The Oklahoma anti-gun control Act declares such federal orders as invalid in the state.
The ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act’ highlights the objective of America’s founders and of the Constitution’s endorsers, implying that they were in opposition to gun control. The Oklahoma anti-gun control legislation voices that any federal agent or any employee of a corporation, which offers services to the US government, who tries to implement federal ‘gun control’ regulations in Oklahoma, will be regarded as a violator of the ‘Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act.’
He/she shall be guilty of perpetrating a felony and will be sentenced to a maximum of five years in jail and will be in the Department of Corrections’ custody.
Those Americans, supportive of Obama’s gun control measures, have urged both sides of the divide to back Americans for Responsible Solutions, a new foundation of the ex-US Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a shooting attempt. The foundation intends to encourage dialogue and urge the Congress to pass Obama’s gun control steps.
