LTE: Media engaged in 'selective journalism'

June 1, 2005 Dayton Daily News I read with interest the community discussion, "Privacy versus the right to know," May 22. What I don't understand is why concealed carry is such a big deal in the state of Ohio. After all, Ohio is the 46th state to allow concealed carry. We do not hear this uproar over the right to know in the other 45 states. I agree with Dayton Police Director Julian Davis, who...

FOXNews: Locked and Loaded, Judges Arm Themselves

FOXNews.com is reporting that more judges are carrying guns into their courtrooms, a move prompted by concerns over recent high-profile violence in court houses. From the story: "It sits beside me in the chair," Judge Arch McGarity of Henry County, Ga., said of his pistol. McGarity and some of his colleagues were prompted to take action in the wake of some frightening incidents, like the...

Plain Dealer writes on fatal crimes of convenience

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting on the dangers of working in a convenience store, but has neglected any mention of how "no-guns" signs are proving to be of no help in stopping these crimes. Nor does the newspaper spend any time examining how they may be contributing to endangering these store owners by publishing their names if they chose to obtain a CHL, as Bill Singleton did. From the...

Somewhere, right now, Eddie Eagle is smiling

A story in the Mansfield News Journal is no doubt bringing a smile to Eddie Eagle’s face today… Hedges Elementary School fourth-graders Jackie Williams, James Wilson and Trevon Brown said they felt like "heroes of the day" Friday. The boys were honored at school by the Mansfield Police Department and Mayor Lydia Reid for doing the right thing after finding a loaded gun in an alley while walking...

One arrested after armed robbery at ''no-guns'' bank

The Fremont News Messenger is reporting that a Columbus man was arrested for his alleged involvement in a robbery Friday morning in which three men held up the “no-guns” Croghan Colonial Bank at gunpoint. The other two suspects are still on the loose. From the story: Michael Kevin Gainous, 37, was arrested after he tried to elude police in a vehicle during a pursuit just outside Fostoria...

The Culture of Fear

By Chad D. Baus These days, there seems to be little else for the gun ban lobby to do than to attempt to create an irrational fear of law-abiding citizens who chose to bear arms for self-defense. The latest example, by Toby Hoover, who often appears to be a one-woman show at the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, comes in the form of a press release shouting “OHIO’S KIDS AT RISK OF BEING SHOT...

JoinTogether to stop gun violence? Only if the money flows…

Last week, after JoinTogether.org announced that it would soon cease its practice of publishing gun violence news (without explanation), OFCC offered a few tongue-in-cheek guesses as to what the reasons could have been: “Did JTO decide to stop publishing gun violence news because they: A) Finally realized publishing story after story about how criminals with guns were hurting people was actually...

Activist aims to scare officials into protecting personal data

OFCC raised the ire of news editors when we published the home address of Cleveland Plain Dealer editor and open records extremist Doug Clifton on our website. If BJ Ostergren had been running the show, Clifton’s social security number would likely have also been part of the equation… May 24, 2005 Washington Post Betty (but call her BJ) Ostergren, a feisty 56-year-old from just north of Richmond...
