Letter to the Editor: Ohio FOP makes false claims about CCW bill

The Zanesville Times Recorder printed a letter Thursday from OFCC President Jeff Garvas: "Ohio FOP makes false claims about CCW bill"

The quote Garvas references, from FOP spokesperson Mike Taylor, appeared in numerous versions of an article about HB12, which was printed in various central Ohio Gannett-owned newspapers. In each of those articles, Taylor was quoted saying HB12 would allow felons to carry firearms.

This is not a mistake. This is the type of blatant deception that some law enforcement groups have resorted to using in their attempts to scare the public about concealed carry reform.

Thankfully, the Times Recorder let us set the record straight.
