Reality Check for the Ohio Highway Patrol: Don't Get ''Borned''

In a Columbus Dispatch article about the expected progress of Ohio House Bill 12 , Ohio Highway Patrol Capt. John Born reiterated the OHP's opposition to any bill that would allow citizens their right to self-defense in an automobile.
