Canton Repository: It is time for Ohio to approve concealed carry

The Canton Repository has printed a pro-CCW column in their Monday March 10 edition. The entire column is provided here:

"It looks like the Ohio House of Representatives will pass a bill to allow residents to carry hidden guns. It is about time both houses pass the bill and the governor signs it. Even the namby-pamby liberals in New York have such a law, as does every state surrounding Ohio.

Last year, the House and the Senate passed their own versions of the bill but failed to resolve their differences, thus Gov. Robert Taft never had to consider it. Taft has said he won’t support a bill as long as it is opposed by groups such as the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police and the Ohio Highway Patrol. The sheriffs’ association has backed the bills. Seems to me these problems could be worked out by using language from every other state that has allowed concealed carry."
