OKLAHOMA CITY – Thursday, Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, issued the following statement:
“Eight years ago, Piers Morgan was headlining CNN nightly and using his platform to rail against our Second Amendment rights. He apparently never saw the irony of a Brit trying to take away our guns or never learned the history of our response to King George III when he tried the same thing.
“When I filed my ‘Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act,’ he quickly took the bait and challenged me to come on his show to debate the bill. In a bittersweet moment, Piers was fired by CNN just a few weeks after our debate. It was bittersweet because I had enough material to go back on his show at least another half dozen times to demolish his arguments again.
“It took five years to ultimately pass Constitutional Carry. We overcame being betrayed by a former Republican governor who broke her word and vetoed the bill, and opposition from members of Republican legislative ‘leadership’ trying to stop the bill from even being voted on. But true champions of the people’s liberties never give up the fight for our freedoms. That’s why I stay persistent in fighting for our rights. I’ve stood up to the fake news since before it was popular. I haven’t backed down since then and I won’t back down now.”
