Half of HB12's ''no'' votes from the Cleveland area
Is there something in the water? As we begin to take a look at who voted how on HB12, a startling observation jumps out:
Less than 1/3 of Ohio Representatives oppose reforming concealed carry laws to reflect our constitutional rights, and 1/2 of that 1/3 are from the Cleveland/ Akron area.
If all of the rationale by this small minority is as illogical and uninformed as that voiced by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, or the Lorain Morning Journal, or by the area representatives who testified against the bill on the House floor - Rep. Michael DeBose of Cleveland pleaded with lawmakers to think of Cleveland before approving the bill, lamenting "The people in Cleveland, we just have too many robberies, we just have too many shootings, and we just don't need any more guns" - one has to think it's a good thing that the state of Ohio may soon take over some of the public schools in that city.
