    Legislation proposed by state Rep. Mike Shelton would increase the penalty for individuals involved in unauthorized militias or similar domestic-terror groups.

    “There has been a great deal of attention given to increasing the penalties for those involved in gang activity, and while I agree that gangs are terrorizing many communities, they are not the only such threat in our state,” said Shelton, D-Oklahoma City. “In Oklahoma we have seen the damage done by militia fanatics and the Ku Klux Klan has a long history of violence and domestic terrorism. Involvement in those types of organizations should be treated no differently than participation in an urban gang.”

    Shelton plans to submit his legislation through amendments to Senate Bill 2018.

    Senate Bill 2018, which currently awaits a vote on the House floor, would increase the penalty for aiding or soliciting gang membership from one year in prison to five years in prison, and creates a new crime for gang-related offenses as a condition of membership, with the penalty being five years incarceration.

    Shelton’s amendments would extend those penalties to other groups, including, the Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and “any independent military organization that is neither recognized nor authorized by the Commander in Chief of the Militia for the State of Oklahoma.”

    The FBI recently arrested several members of the Michigan-based Hutaree militia, alleging the group was plotting to kill police officers.

    And several members of the Ku Klux Klan have been charged in the November 2008 shooting death of Cynthia Lynch of Tulsa (who had the mental capabilities of a child). It is believed that Klansmen recruited Lynch online and killed her when she told them she wanted to leave the initiation ritual.

    “Recent news reports have graphically illustrated the threat posed by domestic terror groups like the Klan,” Shelton said. “Sadly, these groups are very much alive and active in Oklahoma. In fact, officials say Klan recruitment has grown faster in Oklahoma than any other state in the country. It is time they faced greater penalties for their activities.”

    Senate Bill 2018 and Shelton’s amendment could receive a floor vote this week.

    Hmmm.... then will the SEIU thugs, and the ACORN thugs, and the La Raza thugs (particularly in Arizona ATM) be included in this "legislation" as well? What ever happened to freedom of association?

    Big shock this is sponsored by a Democrat in D.C.... for all you hard-core lefties calling those of the Conservative stripe, "Facists"... how can that be when Facists, Communists and Progressives are FOR "big government"? Hitler HIMSELF said there wasn't much difference between the National Socialist Party (NAZI) and the Communist Party... words mean things, WAKE UP!!


    This legislation is useless for its "declared intent", there's a law against MURDER already on the books that covers these issues... this is an (INSULTINGLY) thinly disguised attempt at quelling the capabilities of the people to rise up and overthrow the bums in the event force is required... next thing you know it will be against the law to be in a group of more than three except for family functions... with the proper permits of course.

    Involving yourself with hate groups like the KKK and the Arian Brotherhood is just going to give uneeded attention to yourself.

    Groups like the Hutaree and the KKK mix economical problems with political agendas...and they are, in fact, nothing more than organized thugs.

    Nevertheless, I do see how these types of laws pave the way for incarcerating dissedents of the Government...OPSEC has never been more important for a "Survivalist" or a "Militia Member" than it has been. Be safe out there everyone, it is going to get worse for us gun-nuts.

    This is a proposed state law, not a federal law.

    It will probably get very little support in the Oklahoma statehouse.

    If it somehow passes, courts will not allow it to be enforced.
