This newspaper asked Ohio’s governor candidates to weigh in on the Stand Your Ground bill in the Ohio House.

Richard Cordray (D): “I agree with law enforcement and prosecutors that this bill would make it harder for them to do their jobs and keep Ohioans safe. It is well known that I respect and support the rights of responsible gun owners. At the same time, I believe we need to pursue measures to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, and we need to improve safety in our communities, churches, and schools.”

Mike DeWine (R): “This bill is still going through the legislative process, but I support the Second Amendment and believe that Ohioans who are threatened with injury or death have the right to stand their ground and defend their lives and property.”

One said Ohioans can save their lives, the other one spoke out of all three sides of his mouth to cover all bases. :?

"I believe in the Second Amendment, BUT..." almost universally means they don't support the Second Amendment at all.

Like I posted in another thread, Cordray shifted his position for political gain and now he's stuck with it.

Although I'm still skeptical of DwWine, he had the most direct and pro-gun reply to the question (positive). I guess we'll see if he sticks with it if he's elected.

Sometimes, people, even politicians, have epiphanies. I understand that DeWine obtained his CHL several years ago which is a good sign.

We'll see, but, right now, it appears DeWine is the better choice as his changes have at least been going in the correct direction as opposed to Cordray.
