State senator names gun-rights bill the ‘Piers Morgan Act’; Morgan not amused

An Oklahoma lawmaker with a sense of humor as strong as his sense of purpose has filed a gun-rights bill for the Sooner State named after one of the most vocal Second Amendment opponents on television.

The “Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act” by Republican Nathan Dahm would make it legal for any Oklahoma citizen over 18 to carry firearms without a license for self-defense, hunting, target shooting or entertainment — pretty much any reason at all, according to KOKH Fox 25 in Oklahoma City.

Because the constitution doesn’t require a reason.

“The Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and yet when we require our citizens to jump through hoops, pay fees and undergo a process that presumes they’re guilty of something until proven otherwise, their rights are being infringed upon,” Dahm stated in a news release announcing the bill.

“Senate Bill 1473 simply says Oklahomans can carry firearms in all the places currently allowed by law, but they will no longer be required to obtain a license to do so.”

The British-born Morgan, not surprisingly, wasn’t amused.

But conservatives, including Morgan nemesis and talk show host Dana Loesch thought it was pretty funny.

It didn’t take long for Morgan’s challenge to get an answer.

But some gun rights groups say the debate’s already over — and Dahm won.
