''Mum's the word'' from anti-gun writer

By Chad D. Baus When a notorious op-ed columnist from the Toledo Blade recently took her latest swipe at OhioCCW in a piece criticizing the job Bob Taft is doing as governor, by claiming that when Taft signed House Bill 12 he "gave the state something most of its citizens never sought or desired", I decided to ask her a few questions. And just as another member of the media did recently, Marilou...

Does posting a sign make it a''gun free'' community?

When OhioCCW became law, Columbus Mayor Mike Coleman ran to a city park, set up a press conference in front of a jungle gym, and expressed how appalled he was that city officials were prohibited from banning firearms in their parks. Coleman, who is now running for the Democrat nomination for governor in Ohio, called the state's concealed carry law "a travesty for our city and for our state."...

AP/DDN CHL records roundtable: Another Perspective

By Brian Horton OFCC TeamLeader & CCW-Talk Moderator I think that the DDN round table at Sinclair College went very well. Like Larry Moore I was pleasantly surprised that this really was a fair discussion. I thought Dr. Richard D. Stock, director of the University of Dayton’s Business Research Group, did a superb job of moderating by being fair and balanced with both sides and did a good job...

What will a pro-gun Democrat do to the Ohio governor's race?

In recent years, the pickings for Ohio gun owners have been slim when it came to the governors' race. Whether it was George Voinovich or Bob Taft, the OhioGOP simply has not had much to offer people concerned with the protection of our self-defense rights. Choices among Democrat contenders were even worse. The 2006 GOP primary promises, for once, to offer gun owners a choice on the matter - a...

Editorial: ''Data: begged, borrowed, stolen''

Is this a joke? We certainly did a double-take when we saw the Cleveland Plain Dealer editorializing that "Congress must give consumers the ability to protect their personal information, no matter who happens to possess it..." It is difficult to reconcile this statement with the Plain Dealer's repeated abuse of the Media Access Loophole by publishing the private, personal information of consumers...
