I happen to like Ohio. At least the capital city of Columbus. Columbus is rated by many travel writers as the most underrated, gay-friendly city in America. I am also a fan of the beautiful Zanesville Pottery located on Route 40 just east of Columbus. If I were to move to Ohio, I would move to Columbus.
However, I do not like Ohioans recent choice for governor and here’s why.
On Thursday, Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich signed into law a bill that allows gun owners in the state to carry concealed weapons into bars and other places where alcohol is served.
The new laws allow residents to carry concealed handguns into licensed establishments in the state, including shopping malls and sporting venues.
Seriously? Guns in shopping malls, at baseball games and in bars? How much money did Gov. John Kasich receive from the NRA to support such a cockamamie measure?
