The concealed carry permit is NOT a way to keep and bear arms, but IS a way to fund our Government to come up with NEW laws and groups that can and will take away your right to own a gun, and if you don’t have money the odds in taking away your right becomes even greater! If they want your gun or want to take away your right to own a gun, ALL they need is to make something up or have someone make something up that will get you charged with an act of violence, etc. What we have mostly seen in Mansfield is where many of our men are losing their right to bear arms surrounding acts that stem from drinking too much or drugs.
You don’t want to lose your right to own a gun?, the single BIGGEST thing THEY will use is one of the MILLIONS of laws on the books will be related to the above mentioned – PERIOD. I am not talking about YOU being drunk or high either, YOU must stay away from anyone who may be drunk or high as well. I am sure everyone who reads this has argued with someone who’s drunk or high before, right? These people are protected by law, and all the State needs is a police report there was an act of violence or a threat to take away your right to own a gun. I personally have been dragged through this YEARS ago, this is when THEY (State) started this. It’s a SERIOUS CHARGE and you will be greatly mistaken and lied to IF unaware of what they are trying to do. First and foremost their intent is to take away your right to bear arms, and by purchasing a concealed carry is not a way to keep your right, but to fund the programs that will eventually take them away!
Be careful my buckeye friends, you will not lose your right to own or carry a gun by the Federal government changing the Constitution, they will do it with perverting the right with laws of violence etc. Mansfield is the sex offender capital, so one scenario is setting you up with a cute girls who can a will get the best of you if you’re not careful. I see a future where folks STOP going to bars where ALL false charges begin, ALL I ask is you be aware of the consequences because you and I don’t have the same professional courtesy and immunity as those who can and will set you up!
This story only shows one thing!, how they will fund their perverted programs that will eventually see your right to own taken away unless you play safe! Playing safe is keeping it in your pants and not drinking in public! – you may think I’m paranoid, but all you have to consider is the facts – alcohol and sex offenses are the number one reason for you to lose your Constitutional rights – so consider yourself WARNED!
Proof the sheeple are unaware of what’s going on!

MANSFIELD — The number of concealed-carry licenses issued in Ohio has spiked in the first three months of 2013, nearly doubling the amount issued during the same period in 2012.
State data released Wednesday shows 31,407 licenses were issued in the first quarter, up 86.7 percent from the 16,823 issued in the first quarter of 2012. As a result, the state is on pace to double the 64,650 licenses issued in 2012.
“It is a dramatic increase in permits, we are close to half of what we had all of last year with only one quarter gone this year, a stunning increase,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
He wouldn’t speculate on a reason for the increase.
In Richland County, new concealed-carry permits increased 64.8 percent from 230 permits in the first quarter of 2012 to 379 permits in the first quarter of 2013, according to reports from DeWine’s office. The sheriff’s office issued 946 new permits last year.
In Ashland County, new concealed-carry permits more-than doubled from 68 permits in the first quarter of 2012 to 160 permits in the first quarter of 2013, according to reports from DeWine’s office. The sheriff’s office issued 405 new permits last year.
In Crawford County, new concealed-carry permits increased 446.7 percent from 30 permits in the first quarter of 2012 to 164 permits in the first quarter of 2013, according to reports from DeWine’s office. The sheriff’s office issued 259 new permits last year.
In Morrow County, new-concealed carry permits nearly quadrupled from 74 permits in the first quarter of 2012 to 285 permits in the first quarter of 2013, according to reports from DeWine’s office. The sheriff’s office issued 355 new permits last year.
In Knox County, new concealed-carry permits tripled from 108 new permits in the first quarter of 2012 to 338 permits in the first quarter of 2013, according to reports from DeWine’s office. The sheriff’s office issued 435 new permits last year.
“Demand for a license is through the roof,” said Ken Hanson, legislative director of the Buckeye Firearms Association.
In the first few months of 2013, the association already has taught concealed carry classes to more people than it taught in 2012.
“People were thinking after the (presidential) election that if they didn’t get (a gun) now, the right might be taken away,” Hanson said. “Also in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, leaders started debating banning certain guns.”
Concealed carry permits are in effect for five years before they must be renewed. At the end of 2012, there were about 320,000 in force in Ohio.
