When numerous news media outlets across the State of Ohio start covering the progress of concealed carry legislation in-depth in the final days of the legislative session you know that chances are youâ€™re ruffling some feathers.
When headlines in the Toledo Blade accuse proponents of the bill of â€œusing a ployâ€ (also known as a procedural rule of the House) and others regularly use catch phrases such as â€œmixing guns and alcoholâ€ you know theyâ€™re working against your best interests.
http://www.ohioccw.org/files/SB239-Facts.pdfRecently the news media and pundits have gone out of their way to misrepresent the truth behind Senate Bill 239, legislation that would allow a concealed handgun licensee to enter a restaurant or other liquour serving business.
When this bill was introduced it was stated â€œwhen you go to the next Indian's game someone will have a beer in one hand and a gun in the other handâ€, and recently this bill has been opposed with the phrase â€œmixing guns and bars,â€ which is effective but inaccurate propoganda.
http://www.ohioccw.org/201012234908/mes ... -vote.htmlOhio House Speaker Armond Budish has made it very clear that he opposes the â€œrestaurant carryâ€ bill sponsored by Senators Schaffer and Jones. He's indicated that he will not convene another legislative session to allow Ohioâ€™s lawmakers to vote on this bill â€" and he is the only person with the power to call for that vote before Dec. 31.
