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 proposal eludes me".

It's great entertainment to read his latest column for yourself, but allow us the joy of a quick summary:

• He got more feedback on this issue than anything he's ever written...and only four people agreed with him.

• He totally ignores or fails to respond to the logic and facts, presented to him by OFCC President Jeff Garvas (and countless letter-writers), nor does he offer corrections for his multiple errors. Instead, he focuses on getting his feelings hurt by a few who resorted to name calling, and even insinuates that he felt threatened by some who asked him to consider how he'd feel if his a member of family were threatened.

• He sums everything up by telling a story about a California resident who, while visiting a retail store in Kansas, put a cattle prod to his arm in the belief that it would not be active. Dunbar asks "Are you sure we want Scott to have the right to carry a concealed weapon?"

Guess what Vince? As a California resident, he already does.
