Open carry was a bad idea


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

All the commitment, money and effort put into the programs of Oklahoma universities and our natural resources — not to mention the benefits of all the MAPs projects, Bricktown amenities and the new Oklahoma River facilities designed to update Oklahoma in the national consciousness — will now be undone by the ignorant decision to allow its citizens to openly carry firearms.

That has set us back to the days when people of other states thought of Oklahoma as a backwoods and uneducated prairieland. What a shame.
