Hope the homeless man is alright. Toledoans you better start buying guns to protect yourselves. Nobody else will.

The homeless man who was shot this afternoon died, Also,
early Saturday moring there was another shooting on the South side.

Toledo is just like the wild west.

Open carry is legal in Ohio...no concealed carry permit needed....but toledo cops might still harrass you..

But some of us have had CCW permits for years...

I dont leave the house without my .357

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

"Harass" ... you mean stop you at gunpoint (hence, you risk being shot by accident, since police guns carry no safeties), then confiscate your weapon (and good luck getting it back, at least before they "destroy it").

That's more than "harassment" ... that's a fucking SHAKEDOWN.

Open carry has been AFFIRMED as legal in the State of Ohio by the state Supreme Court. But city cops pretend (illegally, obviously) that that isn't true.

Uh...yeah...

My point was more that there is a distinct difference under the law Between the two....

If you dont have a CCW permit and get caught with a concealed gun...that's an automatic crime...

Open carry is legal...

I'm a certified instructor.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

one is able to strap a holster to one's hip and harbor a weapon for all to see, but it is still illegal to carry this same handgun from the shoulder under a garment?

I don't have any interest in guns whatsoever, but the confusion of the law needs to be clarified in these trying times...

From Zeitgeist: I'm a certified instructor.

Certified to instruct what and certified by whom?

You didn't tell the whole story here. If you carry your firearm openly in Toledo, the cops will call out the Toledo SWAT team and arrest you. You'll be beaten, tased, cuffed and stuffed. Your gun will be confiscated for 'safe keeping', you'll be strip searched, cavity searched (try not to tense up), have your prints, photo and DNA taken (it's standard procedure, and it's for safety) then thrown into the drunk tank. You can call your lawyer later.

You might be charged with anything and everything from loitering or creating a disturbance to menacing, resisting arrest and a host of other charges the TPD will dream up. The TPD will try and will probably get a no-knock warrant for your house. The TPD serve the warrant around 3:00 AM and will kill your dog, terrorize your wife and kids and steal the rest of your guns and ammo - which they will keep for 'safe keeping'. If the police are really feeling frisky, they'll arrest your wife for resisting arrest and put your kids into the system. Good luck on getting your kids back, because it's a long haul. Especially if you've ever spanked your kids for anything, because now you're a child molester.

Oh, yeah, you're a great big deal alright, Mister .357, I'm a certified instructor. How about telling the whole story, if you're going to tell anything at all?

Afraid of the cops....LMAO...for good reason I bet...

Blah blah blah...face it..your a gutless punk.

I aint tellin you jackshit...

You'd be the first person to dial 911 screaming for help...

"help me! help me!"

Buwhahahahahahahaha!.

If I call 911...it's going to be to request the coroner...not to call for help....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

yeah....right.

easy to call out someone for being a "gutless punk" while walking around with a revolver, instructor boy.

umm....math wizard...it's "you'RE a gutless punk", thank you.

you'd think that someone registered as an instructor would exhibit a tad more responsibility towards his craft and be proud of their station.

a legit question was posed to "The Instructor®" and it was ignored just to troll a poster.

and people wonder why I'm not armed...only stupid people with no spine would have used his gun as a cock and draw down with an an insult instead of education.

Now tell me, Jimmy, why doesn't that make sense?

fucking ignorant moron ain't no instructor of anything except his own drama...lol

BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Whatever...I dont carry a deadly weapon to impress people...you'd never know I had one unless you tried to rob me...rob someone in my presence...or riot on my street...in fact merely telling someone you have a gun to intimidate them can be considered A CRIME under the ORC.

I clearly stated open carry was legal...and to do so in toledo will get you harrased...ole madjackshit thinks they will come shoot your dog and rape your kids...LOL

Dumbass.

I'm not going to share personal info here...too many creepy little stalkers....I got nothing to prove to you....I could care less what you think about it...I really dont care if you dont believe me...*shrug*

And yeah...you guys are exactly are the type of people I DONT want running around with a deadly weapon......you dont even trust yourself with one.....why should I trust you...you clearly lack the maturity to carry a pocket knife.

Hell.... you guys cant even have a forum discussion without flipping out....LMAO.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

for someone under the impression the bank failures weren't based on a multitude of unemployed cashing out their accounts, along with the chronological timeline of when the events and occurances first unfolded to cause this mess you're trying to pin on Barack, your credibility on the meter doesn't even budge.

but I enjoy reading your fiction, just so you know....

"pin it on Barack"

*snicker*

*pats brian on head*...spoken like a good little obamatron....Yeah brother...the sky is truly green....

You and the prez on a first name basis now...LMAO

What a syncophant....

BTW..Fanny and Freddy will need another 100 billion next year....oh but they are rock solid...no risk what-so -ever...sub-primes had nothing to do with it...all Bush's fault...

Dumbass.

(yap yap yap)...the little dog who barks viciously but will never bite ...

You are hillarious....stay on the porch and lick your butt.

I've found nothing on the news stating that he died. Last info was that he was going into surgery. Where did you find the info?

You know, the one you can see from the front steps of the Downtown Police Station? Or the Greyhound station a little over a mile from the Police Station?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

It was the bus station at N. Michigan and Jefferson. Here's a link to The Blade:
