    Ohio newspaper editor sees the light!

    Wow this is an impressive piece that was posted up on a skydiving forum I frequent. This is one piece I think needs to make the rounds!

    ************************************************** ****

    AFTER reading through reporter Taylor Dungjen’s front page story today on the relatively trouble-free growth of concealed carry of handguns in Ohio, I have to admit I was wrong.

    If you want to be a gun owner or even a concealed carry license holder, fine. Just do it right.

    It’s one of our most fundamental rights as Americans.

    I'm glad he looked at the facts and finally made the right choice.

    Exclamation And if I blather enough maybe it will become truth....

    This a link to the original story... very interesting. Here is a quote from Ohio's version of WAVE:
    Despite few reported problems with concealed carry in Ohio, Toby Hoover, executive director of the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, says the increase in concealed carry licenses is dangerous.

    “As far as concealed carry, it is promoting a culture that is one of impending violence and fear and other people are convinced to carry,” Hoover said. “As far as numbers are concerned, even though it has become popular in some cultures, we keep advertising like more and more of us are protecting ourselves.”
    Typical, "I'll just ignore the facts and keep blathering.... And if I blather enough maybe it will become truth...."

    "These so-called 'public safety' laws only put decent law-abiding citizens at a dangerous disadvantage when it comes to their personal safety, and I for one am glad that this decades-long era of defective thinking on gun issues is over..."

    Thumbs up Admitting A Mistake

    This is a man who admits his faults and mistakes when he writes"

    "The facts showed that concealed carry did not bring Ohio more crime, more bloodshed or a Wild West atmosphere. In fact, none of that has happened anywhere in the United States as legal concealed carry has become the rule rather than the exception in the state laws across the land."

    A copy of this article should go to every Wisconsin legislator - and sooner rather than later.
