Cincinnati Homicide Crisis

The plight of Cincinnatians continues, as law-abiding citizens there continue to suffer (with the rest of Ohio) from the denial of their self-defense rights. As we have previously reported, Cincinnatians are under a violent crime seige.

Cincinnati has recorded two more homicides in the past two days -- bringing the total for the year to 23 and putting the city on a pace for a record 84 homicides this year.
The all-time record, according to Cincinnati's Homicide Unit, was 81 homicides in 1971.

Compare this to Indianapolis, in a state where concealed carry has been legal for 70 years. The homicide rate has declined steadily for the past four years - from 130 to 83 last year. Yet Indy is the 13th largest city in the nation, with a population DOUBLE that of Cincinnati.

Every day that Ohio's Republican leadership waits to pass concealed carry reform increases the defenseless victim list in our state, and forces otherwise law-abiding citizens into making a choice between facing felony arrest or being unable to defend themselves. This simply should not be.
