In a move that sparked debate on social media, Eastpointe police Thursday announced a new local law banning storage of a firearm in an unlocked motor vehicle.

The police department posted the ordinance on its Facebook page Thursday afternoon and and by 8 p.m., about 500 people had commented.

Eastpointe police said the ordinance, which has been adopted by the City Council, was in response to an "inordinate" number of guns being stolen from unlocked cars or trucks. Its aim is to make gun owners "more responsible."

"There is no reason to store a firearm in a vehicle that is not secured, especially overnight," police officials said in their Facebook post.

One reporter estimated that by 1 p.m., over 1,000 people had turned out. The event, titled "Rally for Your Rights," was organized largely by gun-rights enthusiasts without the backing of major pro-gun organizations.

An opinion piece in The Atlantic, titled “A Constitutional Case for Gun Control,” showed how tangled the mainstream media’s narrative on guns is nationally.

The opinion article was written by two Yale Law School students. Like many on the anti-gun left, they are clearly worried that a majority of U.S. Supreme Court justices will honestly interpret the Second Amendment of the U.S. Bill of Rights when they rule on New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York sometime next year.

The National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) welcomes Oklahoma as the newest constitutional carry state. Constitutional carry, now the law in 16 states across the country, allows law-abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms without first getting government permission to do.

The NRA-backed law, which took effect Friday, Nov. 1, fully recognizes the constitutional right of law-abiding gun owners to carry a firearm openly or concealed without a permit.
