Wild West Shootouts Fail to Materialize in Ohio

two gunsThe Columbus Dispatch - Local/State Whenever a new law expanding the recognition of our gun rights is proposed, the Left screams about Wild West Shootouts. Whether is it is concealed carry or the Castle Doctrine, the Wild West, vigilante justice, and a dozen other things are predicted. Of course, they never come true, and the MSM usually lets everyone off the hook. (And then the same people make the same predictions in the next state.)

Well it is no surprise that the predicted shootouts failed to materialize in Ohio. That state has had a concealed carry law for two years now.
"Those with the concealed-carry licenses have been good, law-abiding citizens," said Robert Cornwell, executive director of the Buckeye State Sheriffs’ Association. "The worst-case scenarios that were put out there about the gunfight at the OK Corral didn’t come to fruition."
Of course when Wisconsin considers concealed carry again, more people - and some of the same people - will again predict Wild West shootouts. (And the MSM will print those predictions with no comment on their veracity.)
