Norwood 'Defense' Walkers ''show Bob Taft who's boss''
The following was submitted by OFCC volunteer Collin Rink, who is a veteran of several 'Defense' Walks, most recently in Norwood on Saturday.
On a brisk, but sunny Saturday afternoon, about 40 freedom loving gun-owners
met at the aptly-named Victory Park, in the City of Norwood. Norwood is
located near Cincinnati.
Patrick Feely signed people in, while Norwood Councilman John Fenton and I greeted the arrivals. After a safety briefing conducted by myself, and a big round of applause for event, organizer Patrick Feely, the walkers took to the sidewalk.
The 1.6 mile event saw the walkers alongside heavily traveled Montgomery Road. Then the Walk went into lovely neighborhoods populated by residents shouting words of encouragement from the porches of their historic homes.
The final leg of the Walk returned to Montgomery Road, where a local merchant fired up a p.a. system to offer impromptu words of encouragement to the walkers. "It's a beautiful thing you are doing, keep up the good work and show Bob Taft who's boss," said the man.
The walk concluded back at Victory Park, where walkers discussed CCW in Ohio before either heading home, or to local restaurants for lunch.
