NRA Hater Hates American Hero, Too

LaRue Tactical, manufacturer of precision rifles, optics mounts, and other rifle accessories, is well-known for their bumper stickers saying, “God Bless Our Troops, Especially Our Snipers.” That’s because LaRue understands that military snipers place themselves at immense risk to protect the rest of our troops.

Many other Americans apparently understand this as well. American Sniper, Clint Eastwood’s new movie about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (who holds the record for the confirmed number of enemy personnel killed), is setting box office records and has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Unfortunately, some Americans don’t appreciate the sacrifice and service of brave warriors like Chris Kyle.  One such person is Michael Moore.  [ READ MORE.... ]

NO GUN LIST - If you know of a place of business that says NO to open or conceal carry, please send us that information so it can be post on the ORA website. Thank you!  BTW, you don't have to be a member to help us fight these no Gun business.     January 25, 2015

In the late Summer of 2005, ORA Executive Director Charles Smith walked into the Capitol office of longtime ORA member and friend State Rep. Kevin Calvey.  “Kevin, we need something like this,” handing him a copy of Florida’s “Castle Doctrine” law.  Rep. Calvey subsequently authored the bill,  adding additional safeguards.  During the next session his bill was introduced and adopted.   Oklahoma now had the best “Castle Doctrine” law in the nation, thanks to Kevin Calvey and the ORA.
