OH: Local experts weigh in on bill that would eliminate concealed carry licensing
Submitted">Mark A. Taff

After eight hearings over two months, an Ohio House committee passed a bill that will eliminate the licensing and training requirements of carrying a concealed weapon. Several organizations that represent law enforcement officers and prosecuting attorneys have come out in opposition to the measure, arguing the deregulation could prove dangerous for police and the public.

Two points:

1) The "notifying an officer" argument is bogus. Criminals act outside the law and will not so notify, regardless. Eliminating this bow-and-scrape would create no additional danger whatsoever.

2) Imposing a training requirement and/or fee equates to a literacy test/poll tax to vote, both of which have been unequivocally declared unconstitutional.

Both of these arguments are based upon a test of rights v. public safety.

"The Second Amendment is no different. Like the First, it is the very product of an interest-balancing by the people . . . [T]he enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table." - D.C. v. Heller (2008)


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
