During President Joe Biden’s first month in office, he signed a flurry of executive orders. He even set a new record for orders, which rubbed Republicans the wrong way.
But since that time, GOP leaders have attempted to step up their game. In response to the Democrat powerhouse on Capitol Hill, some right-wing politicians have made strong moves.
This includes Republican Governor Kevin Stitt, who just secured six victories for conservative ideals.
The Oklahoma Governor signed a set of new laws this week, and it’s unlikely that Democrats will agree with any of them. On the flip side, GOP members are applauding.
Stitt tackled several critical topics, including police funding, abortion, and the Second Amendment.
In so doing, he has made Oklahoma the envy of many conservative citizens nationwide. Those living in Democrat-run states likely realize they’ll never see such bills passed in their hometowns.
Via Fox News:
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a flurry of new laws this week, signifying a half-dozen policy wins for Republicans – including a heartbeat abortion ban and making the Sooner State a Second Amendment sanctuary.
Four new bills he signed crack down on abortions – a fifth honors the Second Amendment and a sixth makes it harder for cities to defund their police departments.
Stitt put a big emphasis on the heartbeat abortion ban (bill B.B. 2441), too. As he said on Twitter:
I will continue to keep my promise and sign every piece of pro-life legislation that hits my desk.
Today, that's SB 918.

The heartbeat law bans abortions after a fetus has a detectable heart rhythm.
And then there’s H.B. 1102, which says doctors could lose their licenses if they perform abortions that aren’t “medically necessary.”
On top of that, H.B. 1094 limits the types of doctors who can legally perform abortions. This should put a stop to risky and so-called “back alley” abortions done by those who aren’t qualified.
But Gov. Stitt didn’t stop there.
Stitt also sought to protect his state’s heroes: S.B. 825 says that if voters approve raising taxes for a specific purpose (like police or firefighters), then the government must spend that money on those purposes.
This is a big win for taxpayers, because too often they’ve seen their tax dollars going places they didn’t expect.
THREAD (1/4): My team is hard at work again, reviewing bills and signing them into law.
As of today, Oklahoma is officially a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State! (SB 631) pic.twitter.com/SGP4uoLLTT

And lastly, Gov. Stitt made his state a “Second Amendment sanctuary” with H.B. 631, and firearms rights activists will be pleased.
This one says that the right to bear arms “shall not be infringed” by any federal or state authorities — it certainly sounds a lot like what’s written in our Constitution.
Oklahoma isn’t the first state to become a “2A sanctuary,” either: Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte did the same thing last weekend, for example.
Essentially, these Governors are attempting to defend the constitutional rights of the citizens, and aren’t afraid to stand up to the Biden administration’s continued targeting of the Second Amendment.
There’s no doubt that most right-wing citizens are in full support of Oklahoma Governor’s bill-signing binge.
- Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed 6 new bills into law, and they’re all big wins for Republicans.
- The new legislation includes clamping down on abortion, protecting police and firefighter funds, and defending the Second Amendment.
- The state is now a “sanctuary” for 2A. Montana passed a similar law just recently.
