Letter to the Editor: Why Vote?
The Zanesville Times has printed another pro-CCW letter to the editor, about politics, the history of concealed carry in Ohio, the lawsuit, and more. The author of the letter did a real number on the FOP.
While we don't endorse this attitude of futility at this point in time, the letter definitely summarizes what many pro-CCW voters may feel should they wake up Jan. 1, 2003 without Concealed Carry Reform Legislation as law.
One technical note: The author denounces then-Atty. Gen. Betty Montgomery for appealing a decision by the First District Court of Appeals concerning the lawsuit OFCC is a part of in Hamilton County. It is important to realize that Betty Montgomery's obligations under the Ohio Constitution require her to fight for the laws passed by the General Assembly, regardless of her personal position (or the administrations position), through the Ohio Supreme Court. Had Montgomery refused to do this, the Ohio Supreme Court may not have been in a position to rule on these landmark decisions and she would have violated her oath.
