Plain Dealer columnist wins Pulitzer for, in part, commentary bashing OhioCCW
by Chad D. Baus
Editor & Publisher is reporting that ultra-liberal Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize for commentary that, among other things, bashed Ohio CHL-holders in 2004 as "Dirty Harry wannabe's".
Schultz, who has been accused by some Cleveland newspapers of being a mouthpiece for her husband, U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown, an anti-gun Democrat from Lorain, wrote the following commentary just days after Ohio concealed carry became law:
- It seems to me the ones who need protecting aren't the folks who tuck a Glock under their armpit every time they step out to walk the dog or buy a quart of milk. I hate to make assumptions here, but I can't help thinking that folks who carry concealed weapons aren't the ones quoting Gandhi. And if I'm in a store that's about to be robbed, the last place I want to be is between a robber and the Dirty Harry wannabe who's decided to take the perp down.
In today's award coverage, the Plain Dealer observes that the judges said she penned a collection of "pungent columns that provided a voice for the underdog and underprivileged."
Her columns may indeed be pungent (as is every other form of ordure), but at least in the case of her rant against CHL-holders, Schultz provides a voice for the underdog only in the sense that gun control advocates ARE indeed underdogs in today's America.
Ohioans For Concealed Carry is committed to ensuring that Ohio's law-abiding citizens will never again be left with no choice but to play underdog when attacked by a violent predator.
