2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

"I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians."

Another 2nd Admendment Victory in Ohio

Here's the link to the original article that generated the one below. Chalk one up in the win column for common sense. The fact that there was even a proposal out there to tell you what you can and can not do in your own vehicle is ludicrous. Whether a state worker or private sector employee, this was going way to far. I guess they forgot that as a state we passed a "Castle Doctrine" law not even a year ago that legally extended your right to defend yourself without fear of over zealous prosecution to your vehicle. I have a friend that is a real estate appraiser for another large Ohio county auditor's office. He often goes into "less desirable" areas of the city after hours for his job duties but is prohibited from carrying a firearm to protect himself. I hope that this type of reasonable thinking eventually makes it way east from Akron to his area for his sake.

Summit County drops proposed worker gun ban

4/14/2009 8:06:24 AM

AKRON -- Summit County is stepping away from a plan to bar many of its employees from carrying guns when they're working.

Summit County Executive Russ Pry yanked the proposal before it could be considered by county council members at a meeting Monday in Akron.

He says the idea is probably dead.

Members of Pry's administration had said that for liability reasons, county workers other than law-enforcement officers should be prohibited from having guns while on the job.

County leaders say most of the public feedback to proposal was negative.

Critics said it was unnecessary and would violate the constitutional rights of Summit County employees.

Ohioans for Concealed Carry President Jeff Garvas says he's pleased officials decided to drop the measure.
