Ohio gun owners name 2011's political obstacles

The always relevant and pro-gun Ohio Firearms Association's latest on-line newsletter has several interesting Second Amendment-related talking points.

Chief among them being the group's take on the 10 most serious obstacles to pro-firearms issues and legislation, especially in Ohio. Among them are some of the usual suspects such as billionaire George Soros and anti-gun legislators.

Also included, however, is John Born, recently name by newly installed as head of the Ohio Highway Patrol. It was Born who - during the Taft Administration - adamantly opposed the concealed carry bill which became law in spite of his opposition.

The gun rights group likewise fingers a leader in Ohio's anti-gun movement by exposing the required IRS returns for the group during 2008 and 2009.

Maybe best of all is how the Association recycles a Fox News clip that tells how one of the men who tackled the deranged Arizona assassin was also a concealed carry permit holder who was ready to use his weapon.
