Press Release: Exploiting Tragedy
Ohio Gun Haters Using 9/11 to Avoid Meaningful Dialogue

by Jeff Garvas
Ohioans for Concealed Carry

September 19, 2001

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, a group of extreme anti-gun individuals, issued a press release shortly before the Civil & Commercial Law Committee was to convene at 2:30pm Wednesday afternoon. The release detailed their plans to boycott the C&CL sub-committee hearings in light of last week's terrorist attacks.

Ohioans For Concealed Carry has responded with a detailed press release (.pdf reader required) outlining our position. 

As many of you may know, President George Bush made a request that every American return to their regular lives, plans, and daily duties. We feel that it was both prudent and necessary for session to be cancelled last week, but to suggest we should allow the terrorists to stop legislation aiming to restore individual liberties is absurd. 

It is imperative that the sub-committee continue to give Ohioans the opportunity to be heard on this legislation, but it is also necessary for the entire General Assembly to move swiftly and pass legislative reform. 

Please be sure to take our press release, print it out, and share it with Ohio newspapers and television stations in your home towns. If you wish, you may send a copy to your elected officials as well. Your help in spreading the release is greatly appreciated.

Some of the worst abuses of government force in recent years were precipitated by technical and victimless gun-law violations. For example, the BATF claimed that the Branch Davidians possessed machine guns without paying the required federal tax and filling in the proper registration forms. So a tax case worth less than $10,000 led to a 76-man helicopter, machine gun, and grenade assault on a home in which 2/3 of the occupants were women and children. Dave Kopel and Dr. Michael S.
