Ohio politicians "up in arms" (pun intended)

Looks like the media and politicians dont know what to make of their inability to illegally restrict 2A rights in the "safe zone" around the Republican National Convention. Turns out when you have your convention in a state where open carry is legal, your 2 block exclusion zone cant exclude firearms, and they dont know what to make of this revelation.

I would point out that many of the objects banned would still fall under the protection of 2A. 2a has become morphed into meaning only guns or Firearms. but if your Arm of choice is a sword I see no reason a Samurai should have to give up his right to the type of Arms that he feels the need or right to carry. Mace or pepper spray is and should be protected by 2A. And what if you have learned these sweet ninja moves from the government and are pretty good with a bow staff? Are they Prohibiting Large Trucks???

It wouldnt surprise me, given recent events. That is the problem with trying to legislate safety. Politicians come up with something new to add to the "dangerous objects" list, and the criminals will either ignore it entirely, or just come up with a new way to hurt their fellow man. There are any number of items commonly available at home depot or walmart that could be used to hurt, maim, or kill people if someone is deranged enough to want to do so.

Actually yes, on Thursday Doug Wrong covered this and he mentioned that there were tight restrictions on access to the area by commercial trucks.

And... an update to this:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/17/politics/ ... index.html

The head of the largest police union in Cleveland has asked the Governor to issue an "executive order" temporarily banning OC around the RNC, and he "doesnt care if its constitutional or not".

"We are sending a letter to Gov. Kasich requesting assistance from him. He could very easily do some kind of executive order or something -- I don't care if it's constitutional or not at this point," Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, told CNN. "They can fight about it after the RNC or they can lift it after the RNC, but I want him to absolutely outlaw open-carry in Cuyahoga County until this RNC is over."


Kudos to the governor though for dismissing the request out of hand:

Kasich, responding to the request, said: "Ohio governors do not have the power to arbitrarily suspend federal and state constitutional rights or state laws as suggested."
