In an article on the BFA website they say:
"After SB5 passed and was signed into law, the Ohio media reported that less than 12,000 emails were sent to Governor John Kasich's office, with 84% stating opposition to provisions of the bill. According to The Dayton Daily News, nearly two-thirds of the emails in opposition were from public union employees, or their relatives.
In contrast, former Governor Bob Taft received more than 53,000 phone calls, emails, letters and faxes on the issue of concealed carry - 42,000 faxes, letters and emails came from supporters of legal concealed carry in Ohio, and just over 3,700 against such a measure. Phone calls made to Taft's office totaled 5,900 in favor of concealed carry reform and only 1,664 against."
We already have concealed carry in OH and have since '04, so what's the big deal with a few small amendments? THE CRIMINALS WILL CARRY ANYWHERE THEY WANT! The law abiding citizen will only carry where allowed, that's why we as CHL HOLDERS ARE NOT CRIMINALS! Let us carry in Applebee's or Quaker Steak and Lube so we can protect ourselves and our families, so we do not have to leave our firearms in the car where they may be stolen by a CRIMINAL!
If I'm not drinking what's the big deal?
Piece be with you!
