TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Oklahoma's governor, Kevin Stitt, has vowed to protect the state's way of life after President Joe Biden announced new gun control measures.

In an interview with Fox Business' Neil Cavuto, Stitt talked about defending 2nd Amendment rights from federal overreach.

"We're going to defend our right to bear arms in the state of Oklahoma," Stitt said.

Less than a day after a mass shooting in South Carolina, President Joe Biden has announced six executive actions to address gun control, including "red flag" legislation for states and evidence-based community violence interventions.

Within 60 days, the Justice Department will issue proposed rules to limit accessibility to "ghost guns" and will tighten regulations on the type of stabilizing braces for pistols used in a shooting last month in Colorado that left 10 people dead.

Governor Stitt called Biden's plans to curb gun violence, "a total overreach by the federal government."

The governor further described the president's executive measures as a 'scheme.'

"'Their ultimate goal is to try to influence power, and try to take rights away from citizens," Stitt said. "In Oklahoma, we believe in freedoms and personal responsibility."

Stitt said it was 'disappointing' this happening in D.C., and accused the president of displaying partisanship.

"As long as I'm governor," Stitt said. "We will fight back against that federal overreach."

How about we fight the state overreach in the Medicaid program...


<edit> And if you want to talk about foregoing federal funding - Oklahoma just added a Medicad expansion TO OUR CONSTITUTION based on a federal promise to provide 90% of the funding - wait until they decide to squeeze those cojones a little bit and we are obligated by our own Constitution to pick up the slack.

F***ing moronic.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Enact a state law establishing a State Militia, persons with Oklahoma Hand Gun License are immediately qualified and members. Governor with 60% of State Legislature can mobilize Militia against foreign threats to the state"s constitution. All militia members required to have an MSR and hi cap magazines. This should cover the Well Regulated Militia and Free State part.
