Lawmakers are making it easier for us to get drunk…

9:46 AM EDT on April 19, 2017

One of the big surprises of the 2017 legislative session is the commitment of our self-righteous Oklahoma lawmakers to increase consumer access to alcohol.

Earlier this week, the House passed two laws that will extend operating hours for liquor stores and allow them to open on Sundays. I guess it's part of their plan to get us drunk in hopes that we'll forget about the awful job they're doing.

Via News 9:

The State House of Representatives Monday passed two bills that would allow Oklahomans to buy liquor two hours earlier six days a week, and to be able to buy it Sundays.

The bill is part of a series of bills to modernize Oklahoma's alcohol sales laws.

Senate Bill 411 would allow stores to sell alcohol starting at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday, instead of at 10 a.m.

Yee haw! We can't fund basic government services, our economy is in the tank, and we're still being ruled by energy industry overlords, but hey, at least we'll be able to buy whiskey, wine and craft beer on Sundays before meeting up with teenage prostitutes in southside motel rooms. It's a start! Now if they can do something about Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby we'll be set.
