Happy Jack's pleads guilty to multiple charges
NEW CARLISLE, OH – An investigation into the selling of venison by Happy Jack's deer processing recently resulted in a guilty plea in the Miami County Municipal Court, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.
Division of Wildlife law enforcement received information that Happy Jack's was selling deer meat contrary to Ohio Administrative Code. The Division of Wildlife initiated a plain clothes investigation. On multiple occasions during the investigation Happy Jack's sold deer summer sausage and trail sticks to a Division of Wildlife Investigator. A search warrant was obtained for Happy Jack's facility and a large amount of deer meat in various stages of processing as well as records and a computer were seized and held as evidence.

A recently released Angus-Reid Public Opinion Poll show that "...most people in the United States agree on the meaning of the Second Amendment, and half endorse the 'shall-issue' prerogative to carry concealed weapons in public."
This most recent poll (taken January 17 - January 18, 2012) show that support for legal firearm ownership continues to grow. Fully 85% of Americans believe that individuals have the right to keep and bear arms. This belief matches the United States Supreme Court finding in the D.C. vs. Heller case from 2008.
Also, now more than half of the United States are supporting concealed carry. "51% support the idea of allowing citizens to carry a concealed weapon..." This is an increase of 4% from one year ago. This number is sure to rise as the final states enact CCW laws and as national concealed carry continues to move in congress. This is certainly good news as it indicates that Americans have moved past most of the lies and distortions that the anti-gun rights groups have been spreading for decades. This is the direct result of gun rights supporters becoming more engaged and actively refuting the falsehoods of the anti-gun side.
The report does point out one area where we should continue to focus our efforts:
