PD reporter: Objectivity only possible if both sides hold press conference

Approximately 12 hours after the Case Western Reserve University shooting, Ohioans For Concealed Carry issued a brief remark concerning the tragedy , explaining our belief that to comment before all the facts were known (and while the families of dead and injured were still grieving) would be totally inappropriate. We also predicted that the anti-self-defense activists would observe no such...

Law enforcement bureaucrats: What's good for my spouse not good for yours

Anti-self-defense extremists are an interesting bunch. Much of their objection to the private use of handguns stems from the phobic belief that guns in the hands of the "untrained" are unavoidable tragedies simply waiting to occur. This opinion has been taken by a minority of Ohio's law enforcement bureaucrats. Despite all the proof that rank-and-file cops support CCW, and despite all the...

Gannett News Service: FOP police labor union speaks

An article covering Senate action on HB12 has been filed by Jim Siegel for the Gannett News Service today, and will be appearing in multiple central Ohio newspapers over the next 72 hours. The Ohio Chamber of Commerce (normally known as a more conservative, pro-business lobbying group) is towing a Million Mom March line by inferring that CCW at work would create an OSHA (the Occupational Safety...

Ohio's law enforcement bureaucrats: time for a little soul searching

That's exactly what anti-gun extremists do when they exploit despicable acts of violence, or point to a random example of illegal firearms misuse to support their effort to ban firearms ownership and defensive use. Governor Taft's Ohio Highway Patrol, the Ohio Association of Chiefs of...

ThisWeek's Vince Dunbar: Record email on CCW...and "four that agreed with me"

Columbus ThisWeek 's Vince Dunbar, and the Columbus Dispatch's Joe Hallet are very likely cocktail party buddies. Or if they're not, they should be. Both are scared of firearms, and both admit to being absolutely unwilling to listen to reason. ThisWeek has published Dunbar's official response to all the attention he's been receiving over his admission that "The logic behind concealed weapon...

Dispatch Column: ''NRA doesn't know when to hold fire''

The senior editor from the Columbus Dispatch, Joe Hallet , doesn't want to hear from you. Joe doesn't care what you think, and he dreads the email and voicemail messages he anticipates receiving (and plans on ignoring) after writing his latest anti self-defense editorial (which has been archived, and can be read by clicking on the "Read More..." link below). NRA doesn't know when to hold fire...
