    Petition to the Ohio General Assembly to pass H.B. 203

    Thread title pretty much sums it up. While these things are of debatable use, it can't hurt. Supposedly the anti-203 crowd has over 11,000 signatures on their petition.

    I'm rather skeptical about the efficacy of online petitions. According to the Columbus Dispatch, the anti-203 folks collected real signatures.

    The organizations delivered a petition with 10,000 names of people opposing the stand-your-ground bill to the offices of Gov. John Kasich, House Speaker William G. Batchelder, R-Medina, and Senate President Keith Faber, R-Celina.

    Ditto. Real petitions are much harder to fake than online. Also, IMO, a petition at this stage is pointless. If you want it passed, a call or email directly to your representative is much better. It shows that you care enough to research how to contact them and let them know you support it.

    Also, the real key is going to come when it passes and they get the required signatures to put it on the ballot, which I believe they can easily do. Think about it, they got 10k real signatures with no purpose at this stage. Imagine what they can do when there's a purpose.
