Curious as to how this is going to work, since only licensed dealers have access to NICS. That's typical politician though. Pass a law, THEN figure out how to make it work.  (Jun 14, 2011 | post #82)

The Columbus Dispatch - Local/State | The Columbus Dispatch

Putting the casino location in the Constitution was the wrong way to go from the beginning. This has been a total fiasco from the start. Now Franklin TWP is hosed. Screw the townships. Again.  (May 24, 2011 | post #70)

He died legally innocent of the charges. Because he never faced trial, all references to the charges will disappear. Same as what happened to Ken Lay.  (May 23, 2011 | post #5)

Interesting that they call him a "non-Jew " as opposed to "Gentile. " Both terms mean the same thing, but they have a different focus. "Non-Jew " says "you're not one of us," and I have to wonder what their attitude is. If he's an observant Christian at all, a Seder can be a very powerful experience, as it's the "Last Supper" that Christ in "the night in which He was betrayed." Far too few Christians know that, and I encourage all Christians to make an opportunity to partake of a Seder meal.  (Apr 25, 2011 | post #2)

Motorcycle troopers highway-bound | The Columbus Dispatch

Do some research into the pricing of HD police motors. Most of the time, Harley makes a sweet deal to the department, and the bikes are purchased for far less than MSRP. However, one must question why OHP didn't put out an open bid spec for a police motorcycle, so the Honda ST1300P and BMWR1200RTP could have competed. Both are good police bikes in general, and probably better suited to highway work. The HD is great for street work, but not so great at freeway speeds. And the OHP trooper who was speeding WAS a motor trooper, but lost his slot on they squad.  (Mar 30, 2011 | post #35)

The first news I read about this said the WIFE was violating a restraining order that forbid HER from coming near HIM. He's innocent until proven guilty folks. Cops come from the same place convenience store clerks come from: the human race. They're not perfect or infallible.  (Mar 15, 2011 | post #24)

Villages rely on volunteer officer to keep them safe

Auxiliary officers are nothing new, but they usually have a fulltime officer available as backup. Who's paying for his liability insurance? Who commissioned him? In Ohio, you can only be commissioned by one department at a time, so is his commissioning department okay with him performing law enforcement duties in a number of locations?  (Mar 14, 2011 | post #12)

If public funds were used, they had to go with the lowest bidder, no matter where that bidder was located. Quick Google search tells me there are three Ohio firms that do "museum exhibit design." If you're worried about the money, why don't you do the same search and find out if they bid on the contract?  (Mar 8, 2011 | post #13)

A love/hate thing | The Columbus Dispatch

I'm waiting for Garmin or TomTom to put in a chip that counts how many times it has to recalculate your route in a given time frame, tehn start putting an annoying tone in the voice, and adding comments like "Are you ever going to listen to me?"  (Mar 1, 2011 | post #3)

Officer shot by another officer during raid | The Columbu...

No, I wasn't there. But I was in a police academy a few years ago, and I was on The Job for a while after that. The fact of the matter is, had the officer not swept the other officer's leg with the muzzle of his weapon, the second officer would not have been injured. That's a fact as reported by the Dispatch. You cannot dispute that. Even a failure to follow the first rule (finger off the trigger till you're ready to shoot) would not have resulted in an injury had he followed the other rule (muzzle in a safe direction). Those rules are not just NRA rules. They teach them in the academy, or at least they taught them in the one I went through. What about your academy? Didn't they teach firearms safety there?  (Feb 24, 2011 | post #47)

Coleman seeks 'common-sense' gun laws

Officer shot by another officer during raid | The Columbu...

This was NOT an "accidental " discharge. This was a negligent discharge. Had the officer involved followed the Four Rules of Firearms Safety, no one would have been injured. The officer had his finger on the trigger when there was no need to, and he was not ready to shoot. That's one rule. He let the muzzle point at something he was not prepared to destroy. That's the second rule. Following either of these rules would have prevented the injury.  (Feb 24, 2011 | post #35)

Coleman seeks 'common-sense' gun laws

Mayor Coleman needs to review ORC General Provisions Chapter 9.68. City laws cannot be more restrictive than state laws. Focus on the causes of ALL violence, not the tools used. Bad people will commit violent crime no matter what tool they use, be it gun, knife or baseball bat.  (Feb 24, 2011 | post #71)
