I want to be able to buy a spray can of wasp and hornet killer at my liquor store.

Walmart can be your 1-stop shop for booze and ammo (and hornet killer).

Good idea!   Sitting on the patio with a glass of wine on a warm-ish spring day seems to draw those little yellow wasp looking things to the 'sweet' aroma!  They are pernicious.

I was unable to find a copy of the suit, but as I understand it from articles the core legal complaint is that QT and Walmart (and the like) can own as many high-point beer and wine locations as they want, while a resident of Oklahoma can only own 2 liquor stores under the new law.  Also, I think liquor stores are limited in the amount of non-alcohol items they can sell, but I'm not sure Walmart is similarly limited. I believe this is essentially the same challenge they brought before the vote, as described in detail in this July article.  Obviously that failed and the vote went forward, but the judge did indicate that the Court had some "questions" about the constitutionality of new law: http://journalrecord.com/2016/08/01/judge-denies-plea-to-block-alcohol-ballot-measure-law/

So we shall see...

I posted the link to the RLAO and the page with it's 'members in good standing' on my FB page last night.  Evidently they didn't like that (I wasn't the only one that posted it) so all of their pages now go to a 404 not found.  LOL.

That should tell you just about everything you need to know about that outfit.  Ranch Acres is a member.  Collins Midtown is NOT.  B&B is also a member.

The concept reminds me of a store I saw in south Texas.  Big pole sign with LIQUOR and GUNS in large letters at the top.  A little lower were some credit card accepted signs and then a large Marlboro sign. An adjacent portable sign showed the hours, checks cashed, cigars, fax, ammo and gun repair.

Liquor stores have an unfair advantage, they can sell spirits.  I believe "strong" beer in grocery (etc) stores is limited to 8.5%.

Arkansas created its own new corruption commission to regulate medical marijuana growers, demanding $100,000 a year to fund the commission.

Sort of how we cleaned up liquor laws only to have ABLE make it dirty again.

Ralph Shortey will become governor before we will have liquor sales on Sunday. 

This is Oklahoma, does anyone really doubt me?

Yeah, but gotta keep chipping away.  The walls will fall sooner or later. 

I do think though, that the tides are turning on all of this.  Maybe not this time, but it will happen.

Whata mean "this"?  You're in New Mexico.   Grin

I'd like to doubt you but I find it difficult.  But, if you had told me just a few years ago that brewers would be able to sell their beer at the brewery,  I would have just laughed.

Hard Liquor On Sunday Clears State Senate

http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/hard-liquor-sunday-clears-state-senate

Quote
The Oklahoma Senate has approved legislation allowing retail package liquor stores to sell alcohol on Sunday on a county-option basis.

The Senate voted 26-14 for the bill on Wednesday and sent it to the House.

Oklahoma currently prohibits retail package liquor stores from selling alcohol on Sunday.

The measure by Republican Sen. Stephanie Bice of Oklahoma City would allow voters to decide on a county-by-county basis whether licensed liquor stores can sell alcohol on Sundays. If approved, package liquor stores could sell alcohol between noon and midnight on Sunday, beginning in 2018.

Retail package liquor stores had hoped Sunday sales would be part of an overhaul of Oklahoma's alcohol laws approved by voters last year, but the language didn't make it into that proposal.

Step in the right direction. That was the way that liquor by the drink came to be.
