Colorado Shooting Sparks Renewed Gun Debate
The shootings that left at least 12 people dead at a movie
theater in Colorado
have some Oklahomans concerned about their safety. People who spoke with Fox 25 outside movie
theaters around the metro say the shooting won’t stop them from going to the
movies, but it does make them think twice about being able to ever fully relax
again while watching a movie.
The shooting has again started a national debate over gun
rights and gun control. Some people Fox
25 spoke to headed into movies say they think theaters should enact tighter
restrictions on what you can bring into the movies to help prevent guns from
being allowed inside. However gun advocates
in Oklahoma City
say criminals will always break laws designed to control guns. Miles Hall, owner of H
& H Gun Range, says removing guns from an area only takes
away the rights of people to defend themselves in situations like the shooting
in Colorado. Hall says Oklahoma’s concealed-carry laws are an
important step people can take to make sure they are in control of their family’s
safety. Hall believes no gun law can
prevent bad people from doing bad things.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Storms that lingered over the Oklahoma City area have brought flooding to several areas.
A number of roads in the metro area had to be closed Thursday morning due to high water. Cars and people were stranded in places and the National Weather Service recommended residents delay traveling until the waters recede.
As the noon hour approached, a flash flood warning was in effect for Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Kingfisher, Logan, McClain and Oklahoma counties.
In Oklahoma City, officials say SW 104th between Rockwell and Meridian was washed out and a sinkhole formed on Rockwell between SW 74 and SW 89th.
