When out-of-state gun owners write OFCC asking for advice on how to transport or otherwise comply with Ohio's gun laws we include a standard disclaimer: Every local community can pass a different law restricting how you carry or transport a firearm, so beware."

"Finally, the Ohio Legislature might resolve that incredibly unfortunate situation in Ohio. ... Statewide uniformity isn't bad, but a patchwork of local gun laws is a very bad trap for the unwary. Now that it might be resolved, the home-rule chest thumping has begun in the liberal anti-gun bastion of Toledo, Ohio." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

For more than 50 years, I have not discussed the Second Amendment of our Constitution because of the many people who hold a position diametrically opposed to my interpretation of this short and succinct amendment.

Finally, the opinion piece by Ron Miller ["Hold your fire: Second Amendment was aimed at building militias," March 1] made my position as clear as crystal.

I am sure that members of the NRA and like-minded people will disagree totally with Mr. Miller, but I am certainly pleased that he took the time to voice his opinion.
