In spite of many state legislators, county sheriffs and even Governor Strickland himself attempting to talk sense into him, Sandusky Register Editor Matt Westerhold has launched an all-out assault on the privacy and security of over 2,600 concealed handgun license holders in several Northern Ohio counties.
Citing a phantom "right to know", Westerhold, editor and self-appointed public records watchdog at The Register, published the list of CHL-holders from Erie, Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties.
- EDITOR'S NOTE: The decision to make the lists available to readers was made by the Register's managing editor. All inquiries should be directed to 419-609-5866 or firstname.lastname@example.org Please oblige Mr. Westerhold by submitting a letter to the editor on this issue.
Matt Westerhold transplanted his anti-concealed-carry agenda from his former job at the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, where he also ordered the publishing of law-abiding CHL_holders' names. More information on Westerhold will be made available in the coming days.

On Monday June 18, I attended a picnic fund raiser for State Representative Danny Bubp (R-West Union) of Ohio’s 88th District. I was representing Buckeye Firearms Association to provide a visible show of support for Representative Bubp, and to thank him for his support of our goals in the past and his support in fixing all problems with our firearms laws in the future. Bubp is a member of the House Criminal Justice Committee. He has co-sponsored several important bills for us, including last year's HB347 which eliminated the “plain sight” requirement and established uniform firearms laws throughout Ohio. He has also co-sponsored two bills this year which are of interest to all firearms owners.

Philosopher George Santayana said that those who cannot remember the
past are condemned to repeat it. It's true. One of the reasons to study
history is to avoid repeating past mistakes. When it comes to freedom,
we cannot afford to forget the lessons of the past. So you and I need to
know the history of gun control, because history teaches us there is a
terrible price to pay when we lose our right to keep and bear arms.
Over 200 years ago, when the Founding Fathers drafted the Second
Amendment, no one questioned the need for private gun ownership. The
Framers considered private firearms to be essential to protecting
personal liberty, both as a means of opposing foreign threats and also
as a check against excessive government power. The Framers were
passionately devoted to the idea that a self-sufficient armed citizenry
is the best means of preserving liberty.
But many on the left do not want you to know this. They keep the truth
from being taught in public schools, and they even write books laden
with falsehoods in a dishonest attempt to rewrite history.
