OH: Conceal-carry gun bill political hot potato for Taft
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"Denounced as perpetuating a culture of violence and praised as affording personal protection, a bill to allow Ohioans to carry hidden handguns is half way home in the legislative process."

"But, the lopsided 66-27 vote by which the Ohio House of Representatives passed the measure Thursday marked merely the first - and easiest - step toward making Ohio the 45th state to allow concealed carry."

"Bush was instantly transformed into a military and political genius who knew exactly how to halt all terrorism on Earth. Bush is given credit for running the so-called "war against terrorism" with mainstream media having Bush "doing a great job" in the war effort. The term "war" is used as loosely as any word can be used since "war" has never been declared. In fact, Congress should be shackled for allowing US personnel to be used for hostilities in other lands unless lawfully done."

-- THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT GUN OWNERS NEED TO DO! If you get on a jury and there's a non-violent gun law violation, REFUSE TO CONVICT! No need to say WHY you're not convicting (2nd Amdt) which might cause a mistrial or disqualify you. Simply say NOT GUILTY, clam up, and sit there until the defendant is acquitted.

KABA NOTE: This article, while about medical marjuana juries, exemplifies what gun owners must do with 'gun crime' juries.

Gun-control advocate Sarah Brady bought her son a powerful rifle for Christmas in 2000 - and may have skirted Delaware state background-check requirements, the New York Daily News has learned.

Brady reveals in a new memoir that she bought James Brady Jr. a Remington .30-06, complete with scope and safety lock, at a Lewes, Del., gun shop.

"I can't describe how I felt when I picked up that rifle, loaded it into my little car and drove home," she writes.
