Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Permit-Free Concealed Carry Coming To Oklahoma

Oklahoma residents will be able to carry a concealed firearm without obtaining a permit after Nov. 1, according to the new law signed Wednesday by Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt.

His first legislation signed into law, Stitt discussed its importance in a ceremony held Wednesday after a Senate vote. “As I traveled all over the state to all 77 counties, I heard from Oklahomans all over that they wanted us to protect their right to bear arms,” Stitt said.

Specifically, House Bill 2597 eliminates the concealed carry permit requirement for anyone over 21, or over 18 for active duty, veteran or reserve military personnel. Commonly referred to as “constitutional carry,” it easily passed through both state chambers, with the House voting 70-30 and the Senate voting 40-6.

Training will no longer be needed for concealed carry, there are other safety provisions included in the law. Persons convicted of domestic violence or a felony and those with adjudicated mental illness will be prohibited from carrying, according to a summary written by NBC’s Tulsa, Oklahoma, affiliate KJRH. The bill also does not allow firearms on federal, state, town, county or city property, and it prohibits carry on any private or public school property, including college campuses. Additionally, the bill maintains current protections that allow private property owners to prohibit firearms from being carried.

Stitt’s approval of the bill stands in contrast to actions of former Republican Gov. Mary Fallin, who vetoed similar legislation in December 2018. She faulted the measure’s lack of training requirement and reduced background standards, according to her statement.

After the law takes effect, Oklahoma will officially become the 15th state to allow the unrestricted concealed carry of firearms.
