A reminder that the restaurant carry ban is a backwards idea rejected by most states

State Sen. Tim Schaffer: Other states fine with concealed weapons in bars
“We trust law-abiding citizens every day to carry concealed handguns for their own protection. I have yet to see statistical evidence that doing so has created a threat to public safety, specifically from the 42 other states that allow concealed-carry in establishments serving alcohol.
When a similar bill passed the Senate last year, then-Gov. Ted Strickland promised to sign it. This time around, the bill is co-sponsored by the Democratic minority leader. That is hardly the fringe agenda The Dispatch suggests, and, more important, it demonstrates a unique, bipartisan respect for the constitutional rights of law-abiding Ohioans.”
Kudos to Senator Schaffer for giving Dispatch customers something worth reading.
