Bearing in mind that I no longer have a dog in this fight.
Well, that's not totally true, I will be coming back to the Columbus area this fall for my daughter's wedding.
I just watched the above video (at least the part about HR 233) and IIHO Rep. David Leland, (D) District 22, Columbus is an idiot.
Obviously this ignorant individual has NEVER noticed how small and hard to see many no guns signs are.
All of you and I know many times the no guns restriction is buried in the text of a small text, verbose, policy statement in a hard to notice location. The best example I can think of, unless they've changed it is the grey text sign at the entrance of an Aldi store.
If you watch Leland's opposition speech to HR 233 (see: time tick 47:15) he states that a CHL holder is violating a law by walking into a bar while armed.
The toxic combination of guns and alcohol you can just imagine what's going to happen.
Bearing in mind that in Ohio only restaurants can get liquor licences to sell by the drink, would someone like to point out to this ******** that restaurant carry became legal in Ohio quite some time ago?
I typed the above before I watched the other speakers for and against the bill.
I now realize that I could NEVER be a legislator. I would be laughing out loud too often and disrupting the session listening to some of the drivel coming out of the mouths of the people speaking against that bill.
FYI: The vote on HR 233 is at time tick ~ 1:20:00. That was the most painful half hour I've spent in quite some time.
I'd rather watch sausage being made.
