City council member packs gun - opposes change in carry law

Postby Bruenor » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:53 pm

Here's a couple to vote out if possible, if you are in the Cincinnati area. ... carry-laws
City council member Christopher Smitherman has a concealed carry permit but he opposes some Ohio legislation that would loosen concealed carry restrictions.

Smitherman described being attacked when he wasn’t packing his weapon Monday while the Law and Public Safety Committee considered a resolution opposing House Bill 228 and Senate Bill 180.

Council member Yvette Simpson, running for mayor against incumbent John Cranley next month, sponsored the resolution.

"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."

I see Smitherman from time to time and we get along well enough for me to pin him down about this. Like to believe this is a pre-election hatchet job but we'll see.

Yvette Simpson? She'd make about as good a mayor as Cleveland's Frank Jackson.
