OH: Judge says ban on concealed weapons is unconstitutional

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A judge in Tiffin ruled yesterday that Ohio's decades-old ban on carrying concealed weapons violates the state Constitution because it prevents people from defending themselves. Seneca County Common Pleas Judge Michael Kelbley dismissed a case against a woman charged with having a hidden gun in a car. In a similar case, the Ohio Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge by activists from Hamilton County who argue the law is illegal. The Hamilton County Common Pleas Court found the ban violates the Ohio Constitution and people should be allowed to carry weapons. In April, the 1st Ohio District Court of Appeals upheld that ruling. The Supreme Court has not said when it will hear arguments in the case. Seneca County Prosecutor Ken Egbert said he will appeal Kelbley's decision to the 3rd Ohio District Court of Appeals.

"IT'S NOT ABOUT CHEAP LABOR - IT'S ABOUT FIREARMS"

... "If there is one area in which the empire builders are tireless, it is in scheming new ways to dismantle our liberties. Foremost in their eyes is the obstacle of the Second Amendment. It is the lynchpin holding what freedoms we have left in place. If the Second Amendment goes, the people will be utterly subservient to the whims of the state. Guns are the big target. And it may be that they have worked out, and are implementing, a unique solution."

"The solution may be to radically change the makeup of the American electorate. To outnumber existing Americans, especially whites, with millions of immigrants from countries that already have gun control. These immigrants, in turn, will receive Federal amnesty a few years later, and become voters. Enter La Reconquista." ...

"The tyrants could gradually abolish US gun ownership using Mexican-Americans as a voting tool." ...

Armed Pilot Program Screening Standards Unacceptable
Submitted by: Roger Cox

"The TSA (the same government bureaucracy that recently gave itself the power to unceremoniously revoke a pilot's certificate) will require from each Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) candidate:


1) A lengthy and probing application & resume.
2) A government administered psychological exam, testing AIRLINE PILOTS for things like MENTAL ABILITIES, JUDGMENT, DISCIPLINE, AND THE ABILITY TO FOLLOW PROCEDURES, POLICIES, REGULATIONS AND LAWS. Airline pilots prove each day that they possess an abundance of these traits. What would happen to a pilot that failed to meet the TSA standard? Would the benevolent government bureaucracy be merciful enough to let him continue to do the job he has been doing quite well for many years?
3) A one-on-one 'interview' with a TSA psychiatrist. The TSA will be screening to make sure that AIRLINE PILOTS CAN 'CONDUCT THEMSELVES WITH MAXIMUM REGARD FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THE TRAVELING PUBLIC, CREW AND FAMS...' No kidding.
4) A very probing, intrusive and exhaustive government sponsored background investigation to include an 'interview' with a TSA 'security expert.' They will call a pilots neighbors, friends, relatives, co-workers, previous employer and, in direct violation of the law, THEY WILL ASK HIS OR HER CURRENT AIRLINE EMPLOYER IF THEY THINK THE PILOT SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FFDO PROGRAM. Considering the airlines longstanding and clear opposition to this program, we wonder what the answer might be?
5) A medical evaluation. Apparently existing FAA exams required every six months are inadequate for the TSA.
6) TSA agents will be skulking around FFDO training facilities with pencils and notepads OBSERVING THE BEHAVIOR OF FFDO STUDENTS DURING THEIR FIREARMS TRAINING and making sure they have the proper 'mindset.' Stand by for a hostile training environment.
7) ANOTHER 'psychological assessment' after training is completed. Look forward to another TSA sponsored psychiatric grilling."

The TSA is going to make it nearly impossible for pilots to be armed.

"Laws banning possession of drugs or guns are examples of laws that should be thrown out. These laws merely try to outlaw a material to prevent the possibility of crimes. This is not the correct way to battle crime. Punish crime once it has been committed. Jail all people who hurt, steal and kill. But do so after the crime has been committed. Banning a gun because someone could use it to kill is no better than banning kitchen knives because they can be used to kill also."
