CoL you will be pleased to know that by myself and BB62 starting threads on this topic at OFCC's forums, we got our good friend Werz to chime in with a suggestion for a new and much better way to proceed in getting campus carry legalized in Ohio. (For those unfamiliar with OFCC, the member with username 'Werz' is a prosecuting attorney who happens to be VERY pro-2nd Amendment. He has been literally in lockstep with us for several OC marches and such now, video taping the events for our protection from and LE organizations that might wish to overstep their authority.) Anyhow, what he proposes is some change to a section of ORC that deals specifically with the powers granted to public universities.

Per OFCC - SMMAssociates - I'm too old to care, really, although I could use the income, but what about the "damage" done (by the "no weapons" policies) to folks who might otherwise do some useful teaching (and maybe make a few bucks) as old-timers on these campuses, but can't/won't because of the restrictions?
As I have pointed out before, there is another way. Ohio Revised Code - § 3345.27. Allows senior citizens to attend classes on a nontuition, noncredit, space available basis; tuition or fee for receiving credit. http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3345.27

My above post addressing SMMAssociates was for his benefit. He is very much a gentleman.

If anybody really cares I was banned from OFCC because they don't appreciate my intolerance for misinformation. Especially when I point out the misinformation being touted as fact and if followed would cause the unknowing to be put at risk. To be on OFCC's forum you must espouse the hierarchies agenda. In other words, if you are not part of the in crowd you are skating on thin ice all the time. This statement is not directed at Brian D, BB62 or Werz.

For the record, this is my opinion and my personal experience in dealing with OFCC. My statement is not intended to discourage anyone from partaking in whatever OFCC has to offer.

I have found OCDO to be tolerant of brash disagreements. Of course most of us on OCDO are pretty thick skinned. We can take-it as well as dishing it out.

Enough said.

That is an amusing way to put it, and pretty accurate. Over there on Lake OFCC, I usually wear my dull bladed skates, and stay somewhat close to the shore line. ;)

But sometimes I'll do some barrel jumps and ignore the sound of the ice cracking under me, if an important point needs to be made. To date I haven't plunged through.

It is almost 60 days after the fact. Were are all the in your face-this is the greatest lawsuit ever know-it-alls? I forgot, they said that the OSU open carry walk would destroyed any chance of a lawsuit succeeding. It is always the other guys fault.

They can always refile the suit within a year. But, what is going to be discovered or legislation passed in the next year that's going to turn the lawsuit into a winner?

If the Republican controlled general assembly and John Kasich passed into law major gun rights reforms, I would bet, Kasich would move up in the polls. After all, Kasich claims to be a pragmatist.
You'll be glad to know that a member of OFCC's forums posted the following: "I cannot confirm or deny that your speculation is an accurate representation of the case. We (SCC) won't go into specifics in a public forum. We will be refiling a stronger case soon."

So there!!

Not sure I should necropost to this old thread, but apparently a settlement was reached between SCCC and OSU this week. In short, it will allow students and others parked on campus to keep (legally owned) firearms locked in their vehicles while parked on university property. No advancement in carry rights.

That's not much result for years of legal fees now, is it?

A lot of hype for getting OSU to comply with the law. And, you are right, "No advancement in carry rights."
