U.S. District Judge Terence Kern issued a permanent injunction against an Oklahoma law that would have kept employers from banning firearms at the workplace under certain conditions.
Kern decided in a 93-page written order issued Thursday that the amendments to the Oklahoma Firearms Act and the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, which were to go into effect in 2004, conflict with a federal law meant to protect employees at their jobs.
Kern said the amendments "criminally prohibit an effective method of reducing gun-related workplace injuries and cannot co-exist with federal obligations and objectives."
First off, I'd like to know where he pulled that conclusion out of.
We've had the debate here before about property rights, and it's not my intent to resurrect it. I will say that ConocoPhillips, which "is pleased with the ruling," deserves to hear from all gun owners who are displeased with their activist efforts to disarm their countrymen.
They make feedback to their senior management a tad convoluted (mustn't disturb the important men), so I've opted to just link to their "company questions" form (and you don't need to enter your phone number--my form went through just fine without it).
Here's my correspondence--it doesn't need to be long--just stick with the basics.
Here are brands I will never buy again, unless and until this obnoxious policy is reversed.
