Local Ch. 12 Television Survey on 2/19/02

OFCC supporter GTC submitted the following story to the OFCC website.

On 2/19/04, the local television station (Ch. 12) in Cincinnati, Ohio, ran a survey on their 5 o'clock newscast. They wanted to see, if, the viewing public felt the new "concealed weapons law would reduce or have an effect on the crime rate in Greater Cincinnati.

The above survey was run along with an interview of a local firearms trainer (Jack Basham) explaining the CHL training and requirements as he knew them as of today's date.

The viewers were asked to call in to their poll at two different numbers. The results shown on their 11:00 o' clock newscast were the following;

78% - Yes, the law/carry would reduce crime
22% - No, these respondents felt their would not reduce crime.

The survey did not explain how the 22% felt it might affect crime in our area.
