Anti-self defense extremists plead with Taft: ''Keep your promise''

In case you had any doubts, Ohio's anti-self-defense extremists are not resting until the General Assembly returns from summer break.

According to a recent email alert from them, they are creating yet another align="right">deceptive name for themselves, and have launched a new web-based service to spit out form letters urging citizens to encourage Governor Taft to drop his "support" for House Bill 12.

We're not sure whether to set the record straight, or pat them on the back. Because if Bob Taft's actions with HB12 equal "support" for concealed carry reform, we'd like to see a change as well. As the saying goes, "with friends like this..."

Just as Handgun Control Inc. became Brady Campaign in an attempt to fool Americans align="right"> about their true intentions, Ohio's anti-self-defense minions are morphing themselves into a new group, called the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Ohioans For Concealed Carry is very much against gun violence, but we weren't invited to join the new coalition. That's because the true intention of these groups is, has, and always will be the destruction of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and Article 1, Section IV of the Ohio Constitution.

Here's what they have to say about HB12:

Carry Concealed Weapon Bill in Ohio
Write Governor Taft to VETO HB 12

HB 12 authorizes county sheriffs to issue licenses to carry concealed handguns. This legislation would lead to more guns on the street and more gun violence in Ohio.

HB 12 mandates that county sheriffs shall issue a concealed carry license to anyone who is not prohibited under law from possessing a firearm.

This legislation strips local law enforcement's ability to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

Keep our streets safe, write Governor Taft and tell him to keep his promise to VETO HB 12.

Required text to the Governor: This text shall be included in your message.

As an Ohio resident and a voter, I strongly urge you to veto HB 12 that would authorize sheriffs to issue licenses to carry concealed handguns to certain persons. Ohio will be a safer place without individuals walking the streets with hidden guns. Ready access to guns in public places is a recipe for disaster and would not only put Ohio citizens at risk, but our law enforcement officials as well.

Please keep your promise to veto this dangerous legislation.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this plea to keep Ohio safe.
