Conceal Carry in Ohio: A Lot of Permits

Conceal Carry Permits Up Over Safety Worries

Permits increased from 33,600 in 2008 to nearly 56,700 in 2009. That is a 68 percent increase in the number of concealed carry permits.

The reason is simple; when seconds count, police are minutes away.
Police say they realize they can't be everywhere to protect every citizen.
Just a few of those times where police were not around.
A Delhi Township homeowner fires his gun at an intruder early Monday morning, but misses.

A Colerain Township man is shot after he tries to sell his car to a potential buyer he met on craigslist Sunday.

The victim says he was able to pull out his own gun and fire back.
Self-defense is a human right, but you need the means to defend yourself. Without some means to equalize the disparity in physical strength, the old and the infirm would be at mercy of the young and the violent, the small could be victimized by the large, and everyone would be vulnerable to multiple attackers.
