And Ohio Makes 23!
On Monday, March 14th, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill removing permit requirements for carrying a concealed firearm in the state. His action follows last week’s adoption of constitutional carry in Alabama.
As was expected, the usual suspects of gun control / anti-gun zealots were involved in trying to defeat the bill. And, just as troubling as it was in Alabama, a number of law enforcement groups aligned with the gun control community.
The Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, Ohio Fraternal Order of Police and the Ohio Mayors Alliance joined a number of sheriffs in opposition.
Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey said, “It’s a fantasy to think this is going to make us safer.” “The shooting accuracy of trained deputies and police officers drops to about 40% in high stress situations. And that’s for an expert shooter. You are going to have people carrying that have no training.”
In another article at another time we can talk about how sad and inaccurate Sheriff McGuffrey’s comments are, both on referring to deputies and police officers as “expert shooter”s and that the general public has no training and would not be able be as accurate.
But this shouldn’t surprise any of us as the same false rhetoric about shoot-outs over minor issues, blood flowing in the streets and cities turned into the wild, wild west was being spread in Ohio.
In case you haven’t noticed, when it comes to gun control, the chief law enforcement officers, those I refer to as politicians with badges, have little need the constitutionally protected rights of the citizens they are supposed to be protecting. If the solution doesn’t involve THEIR department, THEIR discretion and THEIR officers, it is unnecessary and dangerous.
This should concern each and every one of us, in every state. The gun control zealots are going to do everything they can to reverse these laws and bring back the arbitrary, expensive, and discriminatory practice of having someone decide who is deserving of being able to defend their own life and the life of their families.
Every seat in every election is important. Those who cannot defend the entire Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution instead of just the rights THEY agree with, do not deserve to represent us.
Meanwhile, our attention is now turned to Georgia who may become the 24th to become a constitutional carry state.
On a sad note, the Republican supermajority legislature of the State of Florida has closed their 2022 session without passing constitutional carry.
