Ohio Library Council has hand out - and discriminatory signs up

According to a recent Toledo Blade story, the Ohio Library Council is currently galavanting across the state, recommending that libraries post discriminatory signs banning concealed handgun license (CHL) -holders.

OFCC has learned that bureaucrats at the Cleveland Public Libraries, as well as Lorain Public Libraries, are planning to post signs banning firearms, including those openly carried (others which have already taken a public position on this issue listed below in Related Stories).

Given their members' dependency on voters for the passage of levies, and given a recent Zogby International poll which found that voters overwhelming favor these self-protection laws by a margin of 79% to 18% (with even non-gun owners indicating their backing by 73% to 23%!), we think the OLC might want to reconsider their discriminatory position against CHL-holders.
