OK Piers Morgan Act

Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm (R.) has introduced what is known as the Piers Morgan Act, or the Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act (also known, as Senate Bill 1473). Apparently Senator Dahm believes that gun control advocate Mr. Morgan is so despised in OK that naming the bill after him may in fact lead to its passage. 

According to the Washington Times, the bill would "allow adult citizens to openly carry without a license." In fact, during a press release, the Senator noted: 
"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 ... 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."
