FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OPEN CARRY SELF-DEFENSE WALK SCHEDULE FOR SUNDAY -- SPREAD THE WORD
Ohioans For Concealed Carry is making it's statewide members and supporters
aware of a grassroots event this Sunday in Cincinnati.
This "Self-Defense Walk" is intended to offer a "visual display" of the choice facing legislators and citizens - open carry, or concealed carry.
ARE YOU CONSIDERING ORGANIZING A FUTURE SELF-DEFENSE WALK IN YOUR AREA? IF SO, PLEASE EMAIL US -NOW- [email protected] AND WE MAY HELP YOU WITH MEDIA RELATIONS
On Sunday, September 28, at 1:00 p.m., individual activists will gather at 4141 Florida Ave. in Cincinnati, for a peaceful demonstration of just what Ohio is going too look like as a result of the Ohio Supreme Court's recent ruling, and without a concealed carry law.
NOTE: If you are going to participate, and ONLY if you are going to participate, please call the event organizer, Vernon Ferrier to discuss logistical issues. PLEASE ONLY CALL IF YOU INTEND TO PARTICIPATE AS VERNON IS VERY BUSY. 513-310-8250.
These citizens, most of them choosing to carry a firearm holstered to their belt and openly visible, will practice what the Ohio Supreme Court has identified as the vehicle with which Ohioans can exercise their constitutional right to bear arms for their defense and security.
This "Self-Defense Walk" will demonstrate to society, the legislature, gun control opponents, the news media, and our State Senate that the obstruction of HB12, the concealed carry reform bill, coupled with the Ohio Supreme Court ruling, will force defenseless Ohioans into choosing to openly carry firearms - without any training requirements, background checks, or restrictive "victim" zone exclusions.
We will choose to carry our firearms openly on a daily basis if that is what Governor Bob Taft and Senate President Doug White envision for Ohio.
Activists who choose not to carry a firearm are welcome at the Walk as well.
Other than agreeing to help make Ohio aware of this grassroots event, Ohioans For Concealed Carry had absolutely no involvement with the organizers of this event, nor have we sponsored or endorsed it. The grassroots organizer is responsible for his event, and each individual participant is responsible for his or her actions.
A SAFETY MEETING WILL BE HELD PRIOR TO THE WALK AND SHALL BE CONDUCTED BY THE ORGANIZER OF THE WALK ALONG WITH A RETIRED POLICE OFFICER.
