Ohio gun show patrons fear more laws

Some of the hundreds of people who turned out at a northeast Ohio arena to buy, sell and trade guns over the weekend said they feared more government control over firearms.

The attraction was the Ohio Gun, Knife and Military Show at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge. Many there said the talk about gun control after the tragedy at Newtown, Conn., has become a political obsession and no additional laws are necessary.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/UQSfLe ) reports that some of the sellers posted fliers asking gun owners to call their legislators to oppose any new gun regulations.

Countering that effort was a similar call that went out this weekend from religious leaders across the nation encouraging people to call their legislators seeking support for additional gun-control legislation.




@contango.....when are you going to stop complaining about the election? Its over, man. The RP lost. Its time to move on to a new subject, ok? I really do like you. But this beef with Obama is becoming an obsession with you. Lets move on to another subject, ok???

Get onto what we are all talking about and stick with us, ok, man? Love ya.


@ wiredmama222:

Who is it that's in campaign mode over gun control?

I'm an independent, not a Repub.


Form DD-214 the best. Forget all the rest.


And what about those who do not have a discharge form?

looking around

BTW it was not I that removed your comment, I respect your right to an opinion whether I agree or not.


Gun reform needs to take on many forms and to be effective must both lessen certain restrictions and promote others. The idea that one size fits all solutions and only having two diametrically opposed is absolutely outrageous.

Solving any issue with Gun Control is a two step process.

1) Promote Conceal and Carry.
2) More restrictions on assault style weapons and magazine sizes.

It is a fact that people who have Conceal and Carry permits are, as a group, more law abiding, tend to pay their taxes, and overall safer in this country. The restriction on the assault weapons as well as the magazine sizes work towards removing them from going into the wrong hands.

This isn't an issue that can be solved with instant gratification (sadly -_-) and it seems this that many have forgotten that the best solutions are often painful to swallow and take time.


Hitler took a way the guns,look what the German people got.


Re: "to get my CCW i had to undergo a background check, get printed, ect"

No drug test. Less than a week ago a CCW holder stole a spool of copper wire to sell and support his drug habit. Background checks are a bunch of spit when a junkie can carry a "legal" gun in the back of his belt.

I really don't need him or his kind sitting next to me in a restaurant.

How many of those "legal" ccw's belong to a junkie........
