OH: Concealed Guns Would Level The Playing Field
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"In 1995, when I moved to Knox County from northeast Ohio, I looked forward to subscribing to The Dispatch. But after a year or so, I became disenchanted with the editorial slant of the paper. In particular, I found its incessant anti-Second Amendment editorials and its relentless anti-gun stance a source of irritation.

So, I dropped my subscription.

I still would pick up a Sunday edition occasionally to catch up on columnist Dave Barry."
 

OH: Editorial Misfires On Concealed-Carry Issue

"It is incredible to me that there are people, such as the one who wrote the April 1 Dispatch editorial, who simply can't understand that not all of us are sniveling cowards ("Gunning for votes?').

Not all of us are willing to stake our safety and that of our families on a 911 call. Some of us have been robbed at gunpoint by a stranger who very easily could have killed us. And some of us are perfectly capable of protecting ourselves without having to call for help."

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- "A 12-year-old girl confronted by a flasher in an elevator Monday night reacted quickly: The man was injured, and the girl ran out of the elevator and found her stepfather to tell him what happened. The stepfather found the suspect running from the building, and the two men fought. The suspect broke free and ran away. Because he suffered blood loss, the man probably suffered injuries significant enough for him to seek medical treatment."

More of the same repeated lies...

"What are the consequences of an unregulated industry? In 1999, according to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 28,000 Americans died by firearms, giving guns the infamous distinction as the second leading cause of product-related death behind motor vehicles. Even more disturbing, firearms are the second leading cause of death overall for children ages 15 to 19 and the third leading cause of death for children ages 10 to 14." - Chris Hahn is initiatives coordinator of the 'Texas Consumer Gun Safety Initiative', a project of 'Texas Citizen Fund', based in Austin

"Shawanna Underwood's confession helped her boyfriend beat weapons charges yesterday, but it may give prosecutors the ammunition they need to convict her of the crime."

"A Cleveland Municipal Court jury acquitted Devon Campbell, Underwood's boyfriend, of two weapons charges and endangering children. He had been charged after Underwood's 9-year-old son took a loaded .22-caliber handgun to school."

"Police and city prosecutors thought the gun belonged to Campbell because the boy said he got it from Campbell's dresser drawer. But Underwood took the stand - despite warnings from Judge Sean Corrigan that her testimony could be used against her - and said the gun was hers."
