Gov. Fallin Reacts To Executive Order On Gun ControlPosted: Jan 16, 2013 10:22 PM CST Updated: Jan 16, 2013 10:22 PM CST
President Obama calls for a ban on assault weapons and ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds, and universal background checks. So far, the proposals are a tough sell here in Oklahoma, and Gov. Mary Fallin says, no matter what, she's going to protect the state's second amendment right.The plan has already upset gun owners across the state. Last week, we talked to a Shawnee woman, who had her .32-caliber pistol ready for a burglar who kicked down her front door. She and her husband, weighed in on the president's sweeping gun proposals.
It was broad daylight on a Friday afternoon when Pam Loman had thought she may have to use her pistol for the first time.
"I'm glad I had that right to have that gun in the house, to protect me," said Pam Loman.
"Without that right, she just would have been somebody scared, probably would have got killed, no telling what," said Pam's husband, James.
Right in her backyard, Pam is able to practice firing her gun. She says it was her only defense, at a time when she was alone, and had nothing else to protect herself.
