Less than two weeks after the Ohio Democrat Party leaders, and Governor Ted Strickland, announced they would not support the candidacy of Jennifer Garrison for Secretary of State due to concerns about her support for gun rights, among other issues, the Democrats' anti-gun replacement, Maryellen O'Shaughnessy, has officially announced her candidacy for the office.
To fully understand the level of O'Shaughnessy's opposition to gun rights, one need only to go back to late 2006. In November of that year, the Ohio General Assembly voted to pass HB347, legislation designed to ensure uniformity of firearms laws in the state of Ohio, by an overwhelming margin. Despite its level of support, Republican Governor Bob Taft vetoed the legislation, forcing the General Assembly to return and override his veto in mid-December.
Five days after the veto override, O'Shaughnessy, then a city councilwoman, appeared on Capitol Square, an Ohio News Network (ONN panel show hosted by John Fortney, to voice the city's displeasure with passage of the law, which rendered they City of Columbus' assault weapons ban defunct.
Buckeye Firearms Association Legislative Chair Ken Hanson was also a guest that day.
After introducing the panel, which consisted of Hanson, O'Shaughnessy and two members of the Columbus media, the discussion began with Fortney asking Hanson what was wrong with the old law, and why the change was necessary.

I would vote against simply because she took a perfectly acceptable first name with two words in it “Mary Ellen” and mangled it into a one word name, “Maryellen.”
This leftist is almost assuredly part of the Soros-funded secretary of state project that’s intended to elect as many leftist secretaries of state as possible to enable DemonRats and ACORN to steal elections.
Aside from her obvious contempt for the Constitution & rights of a free people, I would vote against her because of her last name.
She is part of a Democrat political dynasty; one of those families that feel they are "entitled" by birth to rule all of us poor plebs.
In central Ohio, an O'Shaughnessy is like a Kennedy in New England.
So the Dems threw Jennifer Garrison who was pro gun, and pro life overboard and replaced her with a lib.
Not suprising at all.
