FLASHBACK: Ohio can learn a lot by studying CCW successes (& mistakes) elsewhere

As the Senate Judiciary Committee on Criminal Justice enters the final stretch of discussions on potential changes to HB12, we think it is important to keep the following in mind:

Tennesseans made a lot of compromises to appease anti-gun pressures when creating their law in 1994.

Let this be a lesson to us in Ohio. This example from Tennessee presents all the more reason to tell our Ohio legislators NOT to weaken HB12 with compromises to appease the FOP police labor union, Ohio Chamber of Commerce/ Ohio Manufacturers Association, Million Mom March/ Brady Campaign, the Ohio Highway Patrol, or Bob Taft.
