    Post "Who's Packing" Lima Ohio

    While making a fuel stop traveling this weekend, I noticed the front page headline on the Lima News (Lima OH) was "Who's Packing" I didn't want to shell out for the Sunday paper, but found the article here:

    Who's Packing?

    Just now reading it but a quick scan indicates it seems to be a positive article.

    Great article

    The article is very positive on the subject of concealed carry, and contains comments by many citizens of that area in Ohio, including law enforcement, local government and business people. It makes the point that those who obtain a CCW are honest, mature citizens who don't want to be a victim and are unlikely to cause any trouble with their concealed handgun.

    Then he probably won't have it when he does need it!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I like they pointed out that it is everyday people including Doctors, Lawyers and the everyday Joe.

    People seem to look at it as if a doctor is doing it then it is more acceptable. Good story, but I wouldn't have been one interviewed. I can't see having my name published saying I have a CCW.

    Overall I would say the folks in Lima, Ohio have their heads screwed on straight.

    The Lima News collected the names, dates of birth and counties of residence of every person in those five counties who holds a concealed-carry license.
    I would definitely get the H out of Ohio or do some serious legislative activism if this is possible. What happened to privacy?

    This is one of numerous problems with licensing.

    They're not public records, and the sherrif can't release the info.

    However, a journalist can view them, and some journalists insist that they have the right to publish them.

    We're fighting it.

    It's nice to see CCW in a nice light though. I get so sick of the usual media crap that spews forth relating to guns...

    It's a matter of perception. Doctors, by common thought, are lifesavers by trade, whereas firearms are life takers. If a doctor can come to terms with the ramifications of carrying and possibly using a firearm, then, in the minds of those that don't understand the lifestyle (of CCW), but who are not adamantly against it, CC begins to make sense.

    Most non-doctor CCWers already understand how volitile this little world of ours is, but many non-CCWers do not. They have lived either sheltered lives, or like the rest of the sheep, prefer to graze with their heads in the sand.

    Everyone, even the anti's, realize that the worlds leaders need protection, but not everyone realizes that they themselves are not protected. If a doctor carries, then there must be something to it.

    A doctor can defend his own life with a gun and still qualify as a "lifesaver".
