Remember that old story about the Norman Music Festival banning guns from their premises? A judge has ruled in our favor.
Norman, Okla. —
We have updated information regarding a music festival in Norman not allowing firearms.
FOX25 News out of OKC reports a Cleveland County judge ruled Friday, people with a proper license to carry, “CAN” bring a gun to the festival.
The ruling comes after the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association filed a lawsuit against the City of Norman. OK2A Vice President Don Spencer was pleased with the decision.
“We’re out for a good time too we don’t want to be the buzz kill for the festival by any means,” Spencer said. “But if you see someone in possession of a firearm and consuming alcohol and we highly request that you get the police in it me get it taken car of.”
Not everybody was so happy by the judge’s decision. A Norman resident says it could be bad for local business.
“The Saturday of the festival is one of the largest retail revenue generators of the year for downtown Norman,” Rhett Jones said. “Since all the stores in downtown are locally owned it’s a big hit if there’s a significant decrease in festival attendance.”
The Norman Music Festival is April 23-25th.
I doubt there will be a decrease in festival attendance. Normal non-gun owners don’t live their lives worried about who has a gun, and now gun owners have an incentive to come. The only losers will be the gun haters who won’t get to see their dreams of blood and carnage. Remember how they fantasized about open carry carnage during our events at Starbucks? Instead what we saw was plenty of guns and zero shootings. So to the guns and daily life doesn’t mix crowd, we’ll prove you wrong. Yesterday I carried my gun to the car dealer, the restaurant, and back home, and guess what? Nobody died.
