Oklahoma Sets Up More Prisons, To Handle More Incarcerations

Prisons OklahomaThe state department of corrections just signed a long term deal to acquire the Sayre Oklahoma prison facility which had been a privately run prison.
  The Corrections Corporation of America sweetened the deal by offering the first 18 months rent free. Rather than overhauling the system to be less dependent on incarcerations to battle crime; the state seems to be ‘doubling down’ to accept an even larger percentage of our population spending long sentences inside prison walls.
  Rural lawmakers strongly objected to the plan, but their motivation was more centered around the loss of cheap prison labor to fix their county roads. The plan calls for taking money out of the rural prison labor program in order to pay the rent and operational costs at the North Fork facility in Sayre, OK.

Reps. Watson & Wright Trying To Kill Constitutional Carry Bill

Reps. Watson & Wright Trying To Kill Constitutional Carry Bill

Cartoon on Kill Constitutional Carry BillThe NRA’s legislative Action service is reporting:

  •   Surprisingly, Representatives Weldon Watson and Harold Wright have actively come out against the legislation despite their previous votes of support and even Rep. Wright’s co-authorship.  These actions just go to show that some conferees would rather play political games than uphold their previous support of your fundamental right to self-defense.  Please contact Representative Weldon Watson at 405-557-7330 and Representative Harold Wright at 405-557-7325 and politely urge them to protect their constituents’ Second Amendment rights and not bow to pressure from gun control proponents.
