ODOT removing no guns signs

An update from our friends at Buckeye Firearms Assn:

ODOT: Rest Stop "NO GUNS" signs to come down

Buckeye Firearms Association has just received word from ODOT that the NO GUNS signs at state rest stops have been ordered removed. In the telephone call to BFA Leader and NRA EVC Rick Jones, ODOT stated that their legal department has confirmed with multiple state departments that the signs are to be removed.
BFA would like to extend our thanks to Rick Jones and all the other BFA volunteers who called or wrote regarding these rest stop signs. Remember to vote in the upcoming election to help preserve hard-won breakthroughs like this!

Boy dies shooting automatic weapon

Horrible accidents like this are very rare, but when they do happen, it's a reminder to anyone who owns or uses firearms how much respect and care must be given to their use. Especially firearms that have particularly dangerous habits, like automatic weapons that force the muzzle to rise with each shot. If someone who cannot handle the recoil is using the weapon there can be disastrous consequences.

Very few people die from gun accidents in the US. In fact, gun accidents have recently reached all-time lows, even while gun ownership is at an all-time high (total guns in circulation).

Be careful, shoot safe, and never put someone in danger in the use or possession of a firearm. It's your responsibility as a gun-owner, and we pray for the family of this young boy.

No concealed carry in IL

Looks like this IL neighborhood is too dangerous for the Post Office to deliver mail.

Gun-owner's guide to 2008 elections

The NRA has put together an easy-to-understand guide to the election, rating each candidate from A-F on how they stand on gun rights, based on a questionnaire they've filled out and their past record.

As every election, there are many issues to vote on. But if gun rights are important to you, it may be good to at least pay attention to the NRA's recommendations.

Here is Ohio's guide: http://www.nrapvf.org/Elections/State.aspx?y=2008&State=OH

On the main page you can type your zip code and it'll generate a guide just for you, or click another state.

Make sure you vote. Even if you don't care who wins the big races, it's often the local races that impact your daily life, especially when it comes to gun rights.

Our next Atty General- either is good for gun owners

The NRA gives both Mike Crites and Richard Cordray A's for their gun-rights beliefs. That's a good thing for gun owners in 2009, no matter who wins any other election!

UC crime update

October 14, 2008

To: UC Community

From: Karen K. Patterson
Captain
University of Cincinnati Police Department

The University of Cincinnati Police have received information from
Cincinnati Police about a series of robberies that occurred on Monday,
October 13, near the UC campus between 10:10 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. During the
same time period, an attempted robbery was reported at 51 West Corry Street
on campus.

The off-campus incidents were reported at 2700 Glendora Avenue, 2300 Ohio
Avenue, and 2100 Ohio Avenue. In each incident, two suspects walked up to
the victim. One suspect then displayed a handgun and demanded money. Taken
in these offenses were a cell phone, cash, and a Blackberry Pearl. In one
incident the victim ran off so nothing was taken in the offense.

Suspects in all of the reported cases are described similarly. The first
suspect is described as a male black 15-20 years of age 5'7" to 6'0" feet
tall weighing 175 lbs. The second suspect is described as a male black
15-20 years of age who is 5'8" to 6'0" and weighing 110 to 150 lbs.

It appears that each of these victims was alone at the time of the incident.
Please remember that the Bearcat Transportation System, Nightwalk and Metro
are all possible methods of transportation so that students, faculty and
staff do not have to walk alone in the evening.

If you have any information concerning these crimes please contact Crime
Stoppers at 352-3040.

Dick's Coupon Online

Pursuit Onto UC Campus Leads To 3 Arrests

To:     UC Community

From:   Eugene  R. Ferrara
       Director of Public Safety/Police Chief

An incident on the University of Cincinnati campus on Tuesday afternoon has
led to three arrests. Cincinnati Police, in pursuit of a car reported to be
stolen, chased the vehicle onto Corbett Drive, where the vehicle crashed.
Three occupants were in the car. One suspect got out and ran through the
west side of campus.  The subject was caught near TUC and some of his
clothing was found by McMicken.

Initial reports by Cincinnati Police suggested that a firearm might have
been involved, but no firearm was seen on campus.  UC Police are checking
the area where the subject ran to see if a firearm was dropped.  None of the
three suspects had a firearm when they were arrested.

Any mention of guns? Nope.

If you've watched the debates so far, you'll notice no mention of guns. Why? Many feel both candidates stances are very similar. This is NOT the case. Check out NRA.org for more info.

Rest in Peace, Jimmy

You may have heard about a head-on collision on St. Rt. 28 this morning. An intoxicated 17-yr old hit a 59-yr old Blanchester man, James Storer, head-on. Story here.

Jimmy was a Vietnam vet, an avid and accomplished shooter, and a friend to both my brothers. I've shot with Jimmy several times, and Jimmy even made a custom rifle for my little brother as a gift when he joined the National Guard.

Rest in Peace, Jimmy. The world's lost a good guy.
