Future shooters will simply adjust tactics to counter new law

Concealed Carry


The new Ohio law allowing the arming of teachers (after a mere 24 hours of training) as a way to prevent school shootings, is predicated on the false notion that to gun down our school children, a shooter has to actually enter the school. But all a shooter has to do is wait until the final bell, and the students will all come flooding out to him. And if he’s armed with an AR-15-type assault rifle – which has an effective kill range of 600 yards – he can kill and maim dozens of children from well beyond the range of the handguns teachers and security personnel would be armed with.

This new Republican law, like all the other NRA-approved “solutions” – securing entryways, installing metal detectors, better lockdown procedures, etc. – will simply result in future shooters adjusting their tactics.

Capitol riot doesn’t happen without Trump’s lies

Someone can argue that former President Donald Trump did not directly instigate the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol. No one can argue the obvious fact that if Trump had not chosen to relentlessly propagate the falsehood that he lost the election because of  fraud, Jan. 6 never would have happened.

Arming teachers only has the potential to backfire

Thank God the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education voted against arming teachers. Hopefully, all school boards in Ohio will not enact this foolish bill that only require 24 hours of training, which makes no sense. This bill only has potential to backfire.

I agree we should have resource officers in the schools. We seem to be turning Ohio into the Wild West. Now you can carry a pistol without a concealed carry permit! Was Gov. Mike DeWine scared of the blowback?

I’m a gun owner but have never given a thought of carrying my pistol around, even though I have lived in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia.
