Protest letters continue to flood Ashland Times-Gazette – will they be printed?

The editor of the Ashland Times-Gazette, who recently announced that he has taken the privacy of 400 or more concealed handgun license (CHL)-holders hostage, and will release the information unless the Ohio General Assembly bends to his will, is certainly hearing from his readers. Many of them have copied OFCC when the letters were sent, and many say they have received NO replies. The question...

Former AAA member shares note he received after canceling membership

For some consumers, OFCC’s recent story on the discriminatory policy of the AAA Ohio Motorists’ Association came as a surprise. Others have written to let us know they’ve been fighting this policy at Ohio's AAA branches for quite some time now. One OFCC supporter provided the following letter, which he received late last year, after canceling his long-time membership due to their anti-gun policy...

Op-Ed: American men: Too many wimps and sissies

March 25, 2005 WorldNetDaily.com By Devvy Kidd "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." Thomas Jefferson to Col. Charles Yancey, 1816 My last column on the feminization of American politics generated some complaints from "sensitive" men. One in particular was such a glaring example of how ignorant Americans are on the...

Letters to the Editor: Carry law has big impact

Several more Dayton Daily News readers have responded to a narrow-minded, uninformed rant from DDN columnist Martin Gottlieb, in which he attempted to make the case that because about 1% of eligible Ohioans have obtained licenses in the first nine months, that support for Right to Carry laws are a "narrow interest". As with the last round of letter-writers, DDN readers are proving to have far...

Letter to the Editor: There are 2 sides in public-records debate

It's not just Ohio gun owners who have concerns about the media's rampant abuse of open records, and shameless advocacy via biased reporting. March 25, 2005 Columbus Dispatch I salute The Dispatch for again raising debate on public records by focusing on the issue in the March 13 newspaper. Clearly, the editors support House Bill 9, sponsored by Rep. W. Scott Oelslager, R-Canton. One didn’t have...

Thieves Break Down Wall, Steal 11 Guns From Store

Another example of how background checks fail to keep criminals from obtaining firearms, and of how criminals who want to steal guns will take time to pick a target that ensures they'll find them. March 24, 2005 ChannelCincinnati.com Officials said 11 guns were stolen during the robbery of a gun store in Colerain Township Thursday. At about 2 a.m., officials received a call to investigate an...

Ross Co. Sheriff's deputies offer gun safety classes to school kids

The Chillicothe Gazette is reporting that Sgt. Dale Gillette and Lt. Don Dettillion of the Ross County Sheriff's Office have enlisted the help of the National Rifle Association's Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program in an effort to educate children on what to do if they find a gun. From the story: Parents who think their children have no idea where their handguns, rifles and ammunition are hidden should...

Self-defense initiatives in schools not enough to keep our kids safe

It appears newspapers are filled these days with stories of new attempts to protect our kids from predators. Certainly it must have come as a shock to many when it was shown at Minnesota's Red Lake High that chain-link fences, metal detectors, video cameras, unarmed security guards, and "no-guns" signs didn't prevent tragedy. Can they honestly believe a bit of martial arts training or "conflict...
