Nathan Dahm responds to House Dems' gun control proposal

Earlier this week, the Oklahoma House Democratic Caucus held a press conference where they announced a massive gun control proposal in response to recent mass shootings across the country. 

As the author of SB 1081 and co-author of HB 2597 and one of the prominent gun rights advocates in the state legislature, I reached out to State Sen. Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) for his response to the Dems' proposal, which would do the following:

  • Repeal Anti-Red Flag Law (SB1081 from 2020)
  • Repeal Permitless Carry (HB2597 from 2019)
  • Repeal Conceal Carry in Zoos, Public Parks (HB2010 from 2019)
  • New Statewide Red Flag Law
  • New Waiting Period Law
  • New Legislation to Raise Minimum Purchase Age to 21

As I mentioned in my post, none of what they came up with would have stopped the killers in the recent crimes they referenced, but don't let that get in the way of the Democrats' efforts to destroy the Constitution. Now, for Dahm's response:

"The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun. The Democrats want to do exactly the opposite. They want to disarm law-abiding Americans and infringe on our ability to protect our children, our teachers, our colleagues, and our friends and family. The House Democratic Caucus is doing nothing more than capitalizing on recent tragedies and engaging in political theater for their own personal gain." 

"The only way to stop a bad idea is with a good one. I propose we expand our Second Amendment rights and allow for the people of Oklahoma to adequately defend themselves in the face of a mindless attack. I am very grateful for how quickly our police responded to the shootings at Saint Francis, but the response time will always be shorter if there is an armed law-abiding citizen or guard prepared to protect the people they work with." 

For the People,

Nathan Dahm
