Senate Overrides Veto; Local Gun Laws Preempted

On a sad day for public safety and for "home rule" authority on the part of local governments, the Ohio Senate voted 21-12 to override the veto by Gov. Bob Taft (R) of House Bill 347, which makes minor adjustments to the concealed carry weapon law but also voids all local regulations of the sale and possession of guns. This came despite the release of a poll indicating that 54% of Ohioans (and 57% of Ohio Republicans) agreed with Taft that it was a "bad idea" to preempt local gun control laws.

another defeat for the forces of evil.

Now we just need someone to challenge it based on religious beliefs to get rid of the fingerprinting mark of the beast kind of stuff in there.

I was watching the news here in Dayton tonight and what do you know.. another shooting....this is not possible though because Dayton has firearms laws and bans on assault weapons. Guess the criminals never got the message about the law!
