Sub. HB 142 (Modify LEO Notification) scheduled for vote in House

Substitute House Bill 142 (Modify LEO Notification), sponsored by Representative Scott Wiggam (R-Wooster), has been scheduled for a vote in the House of Representatives tomorrow, October 24. As originally introduced, HB 142 sought to eliminiate the requirement that, when detained for a law-enforcement purpose, a concealed handgun license (CHL) holder must "promptly inform" an approaching law...

Let's talk about what REALLY reduces violent crime

Whenever there's a violent crime involving a gun, the response from gun control advocates is predictable. They always say, "let's talk about more gun laws." High-capacity magazine bans. Assault weapon bans. Universal background checks. No gun zones. Ammo taxes. Microstamping. You name it, gun control groups want it. The problem is, their proposals seldom have any relationship to the crime they're...

Gun Control Group Sues Slide Fire Solutions

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence has joined Las Vegas law firm Eglet Price in a class-action lawsuit against Slide Fire Solutions, LP, alleging the company "negligently" manufactured and marketed their "device" that "enabled the killer to turn the country music festival into a war zone." Mass murderer Stephen Paddock used several of the slide fire stocks on his rifles to commit the nation...

New Bipartisan Bump Stock Bill Would Actually Ban All Semi-Automatic Rifles

A new gun control proposal in Congress that is being pitched as a bipartisan bump stock ban would actually ban all semi-automatic rifles in the United States, according to an analysis of the proposed bill.

Why regulating or banning bump stocks is wrong

Since the massacre at the country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada there has been an enormous amount of attention given to bump stocks and the politics of regulating or banning them. If you care about human life, this is the wrong thing to focus on – no matter how you feel about firearms or the Second Amendment. Nearly 60 people died. Well over 500 more were injured. Some of the victims will...

2Adoc.com Will Connect Patients with Gun-Friendly Providers

Patients want to trust their provider to not make mistakes and to not lie to them. Unfortunately, when it comes to guns, medical organizations have not been living up to that expectation. Medical associations have been insinuating an anti-gun political agenda into the patient-doctor relationship for decades. Patients are routinely being asked about gun ownership. Worse, many physicians commit...

To the Editor: Schools Safer with Trained Staff

The following letter to the Columbus Dispatch editor was published in response to a Dispatch "news" article entitled " Why does nothing ever change after mass shootings? " I respond to the Oct. 3 Dispatch.com article “Why does nothing ever change after mass shootings?” If the definition of “nothing” is simply repeating the same pathetic sound bites about “rapid-fire weapons” or “hidden loaded...

SHOCK: Persons obtain 70+ firearms & thousands of rounds of ammo without background check

According to so-called "common-sense" gun control extremists like Mark Kelley's "Americans for Responsible Solutions," all we have to do to keep criminals from gaining access to firearms is to mandate that a background check be done before all transfers of firearms. Pass "universal" background checks, we're told, close the "gun show loophole," we're told, and we can stop mass shootings! Indeed,...
