    An Ohio sheriff says a judge fired back at a man who shot him outside a courthouse, killing him. One suspect has been killed and another is in custody, CBS Pittsburgh reports. The incident happened outside of the Jefferson County Courthouse around 8 a.m. along the Ohio River in Steubenville, roughly 30 miles west of Pittsburgh, according to WTRF-TV. Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla says courthouse video shows Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. firing about five shots at the gunman, who also fired about five shots. The gunman was then killed by a probation officer.
  • Ohio Reform of Gun Free Zone Penalties

    A bill being considered in the Ohio legislature would reform the penalties for someone carrying a concealed handgun in current "gun free" zones. Current penalties are extreme. A person who inadvertently enters such a zone in Ohio is subject to a felony charge, a maximum of 12 months in prison, and a $2,500 fine. A felony conviction removes the right to vote, or to own a fire arm under the Second Amendment.  People who have concealed carry permits are, statistically, some of the most law abiding people in the country. They are far more law abiding than the population...

    On March 24 in 2015, in Cleveland, Brian Bridges shot a man in self defense. He had a concealed carry permit from Ohio, and was never charged with a crime.  But the accomplice of the man who was shot was charged.  From clevescene.com: That trial wasn't to be— the defendant pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in October 2015. But now, in 2017, Bridges still hasn't gotten his handgun and other items back, the complaint alleges. From courthousenews.com:  Bridges claims Cleveland police unlawfully seized his property, “including a Glock 21 semiautomatic handgun, ammunition, holsters and a redcherry piccolo,” to be...

    A new course offering at (The) Ohio State University aims to teach students how Muslims actually had a hand in the founding of America, and a substantial role in shaping the nation to become a powerhouse on the global scale. Remember the Barbary Wars? Muslim pirates? The Daily Caller, citing the College Fix, reported a class due to make its debut at the Ohio campus this spring is called “Islam in the United States.” Taught by Sabra Webber, the class will underscore and explain how Muslims have been in America since the beginning and have, in fact, played a big...
  • Kasich Signs incremental Gun Reform Bill SB 199

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)-On Monday, 19 December, 2016, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed SB 199, a gun law reform bill.  SB 199 does away with gun free zones at airports outside the secure area, school “zones” away from actual school property, and some public buildings. It allows schools of higher education more leeway in setting their own policies. From toledoblade.com: Senate Bill 199 would lift the state’s current ban on carrying concealed firearms in day-care centers, airport terminals, school safety zones, and certain government buildings and would give public colleges and universities the authority to allow weapons on campus. SB 199...

    A year ago, the House of the 131st Ohio General Assembly voted to pass HB 48.  It passed the House 68 to 29. It has been languishing there ever since.   House Bill 48 is the prominent gun law reform bill pending in Ohio.  It is a modest bill that makes only a few reforms.  It removes silly prohibitions on permit holders from carrying concealed guns in day care centers, in the unsecured areas of airports, and other "gun free zones".   It passed the House by over 2-1 (68-29) on 17 November,  and has 42 cosponsors in the...

    There will be a gun turn in event in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, 4 December,  2016.  While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term “buyback” the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them. Private sales of firearms in Ohio are legal, and Cleveland cannot override state law.  The location has changed from 2014. That year, the location was on Payne Avenue. This year it will be on Chester Avenue.  From patch.com: CLEVELAND, OH — Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Chief of Police Calvin D. Williams proudly announce that the 2016 City of Cleveland...

    Something stinks in Warren County, Ohio. A massive truckload of manure was dumped outside the Democratic headquarters in Warren County, and office personnel are furious. [snip] Bethe Goldenfield, chairperson of the Warren County Democratic Party, unleashed a volcanic tirade on Facebook, writing: “What reasonable person thinks this is OK???? I won’t be responding to anyone who thinks this is acceptable behavior. It is ILLEGAL!” Security cameras recorded a truck dumping off a huge pile of manure outside the office at 12:03 a.m. on October 29. Police are investigating the incident, WLWT reported.

Staff and teachers love it, embrace it, and recommend it to others.   A survey done by the University of South Florida found that there was likely to be a favorable response if such a program were offered in Florida.

    Usually when reporters ask about the gorilla in the room, it's not an actual gorilla. Not so Tuesday, when between reporter queries about his potential running mate and his policies on veterans' health care, Donald Trump fielded a question from Yahoo News reporter Hunter Walker asking the presumptive Republican nominee on his thoughts regarding the Cincinnati Zoo's decision to shoot and kill a rare gorilla after a 4-year-old boy fell into his enclosure. ... But on Twitter, where media wars are often begun and settled, Walker's fellow scribes saw fit to pillory him for the question.

    Imagine, if you will, that your house is on fire. The conflagration has spread from the kitchen downstairs to engulf the hallway outside your bedroom upstairs. So you remain in your room, with a window open and a damp cloth over your mouth, under your bed. As you lay there terrified, eyes and throat burning from noxious fumes, a fireman bursts through the door. He sees you under the bed, a look of frenzied hope in your eyes that help has finally arrived. The fireman walks over to the window, shuts it, and then exits the room closing the door...

    Students at Ohio State University who attempted to occupy the area outside of president Michael V. Drake’s office late Wednesday night experienced a surprise — and a taste of the cruel, real world — when a senior administrator coolly advised them that they would be arrested and expelled if they didn’t retreat from their “occupied space.” The protest began — as such protests often do these days — with a set of demands and the promise to remain firmly ensconced at Bricker Hall, Ohio State’s main administration building, until school officials capitulated to the demands.

    Link goes directly to picture of the article that's good enough to read. FULL Disclosure: I'm not a Cruz supporter, but I hate this kind of sleaze and I'm hoping that we can put this to rest before it gets submitted 500 times. The entire article is based off of the threat from a hoax "Anonymous" account on Twitter, which later turned out to be a RickRoll (all related tweets have since been deleted). I am pretty sure the "details" are actually lifted from replies to the original tweet, LOL. Since they're deleted, I can't be sure. Point being, it...

    Donald J. Trump routed Senator Marco Rubio in Florida on Tuesday, driving him from the Republican presidential race, and easily won the primaries in Illinois and North Carolina, amassing a formidable delegate advantage that will be exceedingly difficult for any rival to overcome. But with a victory in Ohio, his home state, Gov. John Kasich denied Mr. Trump one of the night’s biggest prizes and made it considerably harder for him to clinch the nomination outright. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas finished second in Illinois and North Carolina and was locked in a tight race with Mr. Trump in Missouri,...
