If you peruse the political blogs, you may have found that the U.S. Senate’s recently voted down conceal-carry legislation has reinvigorated the pro-gun lobby, and rightly so.
But when Ohio pro-gun activists get talking, they can’t help but talk about John Kasich. And they talk. And they talk. And they talk.
- Even when Kasich says he owns his own gun, they’re worried whether he supports the rights of gun owners.
- Even when he explains that “violent crime rates are lower now than before the [assault weapons] ban was lifted”, they still question whether he believes in it.
- Even when he says he’s against anymore regulation on guns, they still think he may want more regulation on guns.
- Even when he voted to decrease the waiting period on guns from three days to one, just as the NRA supported, they still think he doesn’t have their best interests in mind.
And one thing that has particularly irked me, why don’t these Kasich critics bring up his No vote on the famous Brady Bill?
Because it doesn’t help their argument, that’s why.
Listen, guys. For as long as I’ve known John Kasich, he’s wanted to reduce the influence of government in our lives. His priority as Governor will be to streamline Ohio’s budget and foster an environment conducive to economic growth and personal freedom.
There is absolutely zero reason to believe he’d propose, lobby for, or support increased government regulation designed to take away the rights of gun owners in Ohio.
Now put down your keyboards before they go off.
