Welcome, Governor Fallin.

Mary Fallin has made history by becoming Oklahoma's first female governor. A+ rated by the NRA and a member as well, it really can't get any better than that. Her view on the Second Amendment:

Unfortunately, many liberals, including President Obama, do not. As governor, I will make sure that no one, whether its anti-gun activists or the president himself, infringes on our constitutional liberties or erodes the right to purchase and own firearms.

Furthermore, I believe that gun ownership rights in Oklahoma can and should be expanded. Gov. Brad Henry vetoed an "open carry" law that would have permitted responsible gun owners to carry weapons without concealing them. When I am governor, I will sign that bill into law and send a message that in Oklahoma, we mean business when it comes to the second amendment.

I am proud to have the support and endorsement of the National Rifle Association in the race for Oklahoma governor.

Sounds like we have a winner and I didn't expect any less. We here in Oklahoma are in a unique position in that there really aren't any anti-gun politicians. While that seems great on the surface, it does have a downside: It makes everyone complacent. Very little is done to expand the right to keep and bear arms. If Mary stays true to the bolded part, hopefully that will change.
