    TSRA has not supported Open Carry. How is this any different?

    We can now see the pitiful excuse the opposition has come up with regarding open carry of handguns:

    It will make people under 21 buy handguns and this is against a federal law...

    Easy to shoot that claim down. Federal law only says you have to be 21 to buy from a dealer and OK's state law says you can buy anything at 18 from a private seller. On top of that, I'm sure the background check will catch this if someone under 21 tries to buy a handgun at a dealer and the transfer will be denied.

    What did I say... Pitiful.

    I am not a TSRA member and I never will be to that worthless group. They have done good work in the past, but when they ignore the positives in the advancement of gun rights not sanctioned by them they can choke on a cock.

    Comments from Oklahoma's gun leaders..............

    Last year, the NRA was largely responsible for our inability to get enough
    votes to override Governor Henry's veto of the licensed open carry bill that
    passed both chamber with overwhelming support (by the way, we found very
    quickly this year that many of the Republicans that voted for it last year
    only did so because they knew the Governor would veto it). The NRA sent a
    letter to every legislator last year telling them that open carry was not
    their priority. Not their priority? The Second Amendment is not their
    priority? The ORA has always walked in lockstep, of course. That was why
    we founded OK2A in 2009 - we were sick and tired of their willingness to
    compromise away our rights. So, Dave, you hit the nail on the head when you
    said they've probably been off track for a very long time.

    This is the reason I am not a member of the NRA right now, you don't get to vote on how they represent you, you take the good with the bad. Once I look into it more about the only reason I really liked me NRA membership was for the legal support they would provide if you needed them, and for the insurance on your firearms. The ILA part of it does not impress me...

    I am a member of the NRA. Each year I get to vote for directors to represent me. My wife is also a member and gets to vote for directors to represent her. We don't, as members, get to vote on individual issues, but I guess that's kinda like our US political system.

    If you have a link showing the TSRA opposition, please provide it. I look at the TSRA site and I don't find any overt opposition.
