Crickets, not Gunfights

May 2, 2012

Crickets, not Gunfights, Heard on Anniversary of Ohio CC Law By Gun Reports Staff
(GunAuction.com) — "April 8, 2012, marked the anniversary of a law that affects the lives of more than 270,000 Buckeyes," writes Ken Hanson in The Columbus Dispatch newspaper.

Ohio’s concealed-handgun license law turned 8 years old on that Sunday afternoon. Notably absent from the festivities were blood in the streets, Wild West reenactments and an epidemic of accidental gun injuries. To understand the significance of this event and why today it seems completely unremarkable, simply Google “Ohio concealed carry 2003” and prepare to be astonished.

• “The widespread carrying of concealed handguns, however, will result in far more cases of senseless killings that occur simply because a loaded gun was readily available.” — Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association, March 4, 2003.

• “Imagine your child’s class is visiting the Statehouse on the same day a group known for violence is scheduled to attend in protest.” — State Highway Patrol, March 5, 2003.

• “If 200,000 to 300,000 citizens begin carrying a concealed weapon, common sense tells us that accidents will become a daily event.” — Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police, March 5, 2003.

Eight years later, we know definitively that these dire warnings were groundless.

I'm sure they'll find ways to turn it and twist it.

There is a good reason it's difficult to find solid numbers on any of this stuff. And when numbers are released, they slant them. I remember an article about how murders were going up in some major city and it was all due to guns. The slant there was that they included gun suicides in the murders to pad the numbers. I know it happens on both sides, but the Anti-gunners are the worst.

(that's about as political as I get)

Still waiting in WI for it to be a massive gun fight between ccw holders.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

And a random funny quote from that episode.
Quote:
Steve & Roger: We totally got you!

Klaus: Allow me to press upon you the severe mistake you have made.

For years my conduct has been largely benign. And yet, without provocation, you have severed our détente and forced me to unleash upon you the vengeful flames of a thousand suns!

You shall curse your mothers for the day of your birth!
So go now! Go, and begin your life of fear, knowing that when you least expect it the looming sword of Damocles will crash down upon you cleaving you in twain!

And as you gaze upon the smoking wreckage that was once your life you will regret the day you crossed the wrong fish!

Steve: He didn't think it was funny.
