Ohio FOP Funds Solicitation & My Reply

I recently got the Ohio FOP's annual request for money. Here is my reply: Ohio State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police 222 E. Town Street Columbus OH 43215-4611 Gentlemen: I have received your annual solicitation of financial support. I am no longer a supporter of the FOP. I was once a "V. I. P. Booster." This ended several years ago, when the Ohio FOP came out as a non-supporter of legislation to...

Health bureaucrats: Guns are a ''health issue''

Although not directly related to our battle to restore Ohioan's right to self-defense with a firearm, we believe the fight against "assault"-weapons bans is an important one. The erosion of our rights, with bans that do not work, is a serious matter. Youngstown citizens have been fighting proposals to ban certain types of firearms in that city for some time now. Their list of adversaries has...

Text of Million Mom's anti-self-defense business form letter

The Million Mom March's Lori O'Neill has been working to scare businesses into opposing HB12 for months now. Apparently she has found very few willing ears. In Senate testimony Wednesday , O'Neill provided just five form letters, identical in content, on letterhead from five Ohio businesses (well, four and a half - one is owned by the Communist Chinese).

These extremists & businesses want you to remain defenseless

Pro-self-defense law enforcement officers and women, as well as the other "good guys", seemed to steal the show this week’s Senate hearings , even in the media. But lest we become over-confident, it bears noting that the anti-self-defense extremists are still spouting their rhetoric. Last week, we had to "translate Toby" . This week, it was more of the same from a troop of "Chicken Little’s", who...

Press conference or not, we still get the nasty headline

Despite the fact that it was the Million Mom March who held a tasteless press conference before the victim of the Case Western shooting was even laid to rest, the headline on this Sunday's Letters to the Editor page in the Cleveland Plain Dealer shouted: "Gun backers are quick to spin every tragedy" Under the twisted headline, they published four letters on the CWRU shooting. Only one was...

Should we judge by society's worst examples?

After Tacoma, Washington Police Chief David Brame murdered his estranged wife and then committed suicide, we wondered aloud about whether Ohio's law enforcement bureaucrats wished to be judged by the worst example of themselves. The media did not focus on this question in the case of Chief Brame, nor will they focus on the background of Case Western Reserve University shooter Biswanath Halder...

Translating Toby: Senate testimony full of holes

Toby Hoover, executive director Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, said a mouthful in yesterday's Senate testimony , as did her anti-self-defense partner from the Brady Campaign in Washington D.C., John Shanks. Unfortunately, the truth and their testimony seem to have parted company before they entered the hearing room. Commentary by Chad D. Baus inserted in blue . One of Toby and Shanks'...
