Question of the Day
Would a resolution by the Dayton City Commission sway your opinion about the proposed "stand your ground" legislation in Ohio?
Comment: Why should I need permission from anybody to defend my right to life.I should be able to travel freely anywhere I wish without fear of having to run away from someone trying to do me harm.Do you think criminals abide by the rule of law. They do not that's why they are criminals.The government is out of control.They need to abide by the same rules as I do.They are no more important than you or I.Yet they pass these laws and exempt themselves I don't think so.If they don't have to abide by the laws they pass neither do I or will I abide by them.They get an armed security detail but I don't WRONG!I am my own security detail.Until they play by the same rules I will do as they do.Just like the health care bullsh** I WILL NOT COMPLY fbho from America by Silence Dogood
Comment: I don't intend to try to run. I'm 62 with a new hip. FU from Columbus/Ohio by Pancho
Comment: another shot at citizens rights to protect ourselves...does it really make since to protect the rights of criminals over the rights of law abiding citizens protecting themselves??if confronted with deadly force i WILL protect myself and my family with deadly force... red white and blue.. do we forget THESE COLORS DONT RUN!!!!!!!! from miamisburg by MM
Comment: I am for 'Stand your Ground'. I would guess that 'the majority' in Dayton is also for stand your ground. If the law needs tweaked to make more sense, then do that. However, if I had to count on 'running away' to be safe, I'm toast. This should not be a black/white issue. EVERYONE has the right to defend their own safety. The squeaky wheel always gets the oil though doesn't it. from Dayton, OH by Gloria
Comment: I just read a story on here about a w/m who had a hot dog stand outside a Home Depot when 4 B/m's took his cell phone from him and when he tackled one of them they beat him with a hammer. I'll be carrying my 45 everywhere from now on, and its legal. from Riverside, Ohio by Glen
Comment: I think this would be good for Ohio. There might be circumstances where its not possible to retreat and you should be able to defend yourself and family. from Dayton OH by Jim
Comment: This resolution is a very bad idea. We need to be able to defend ourselves/ from Centerville, Ohio by Phil
Comment: Yet another reason why the Dayton City Commission doesn't have a clue about what is good and just for each citizen. Libs like these have ruined most metropolitan cities. from Union,Oh by Uncle Eric
Comment: Total BS you people and yes i mean black and those who are against Stand Your Ground. This law would not cause any more gun deaths our then bad guys. This mean those of a certain group and age would have to drop the gangbang ideas and be more respectful. All these punch out game idiots would have to stop now or take chance of being put 6 foot under. It would also stop the roaming gangs doing damage to property and people. And this means less anger beating out of fear of dieing . from Celina Ohio by Michael Harris
Comment: THERE IS NO ONE ON THE COMMISSION COMPETENT ENOUGH TO PROPOSE OPPOSITION. THEY MAKE KNEE JERK DECISIONS TO KEEP THE NAACP SATISFIED. from sunny downtown Fairborn by the ol' Man
Comment: I watched this on 6:30 news I heard talk about reducing gun violence in relation to this new legislation. But I did not hear a thing about reducing crime. Witch if they were not committing a crime people would not have nothing to worry about. It sounds like City of Dayton is trying to make it easer for criminals and more difficult for a honest people / victims to defend themselves. from Dayton OH by Russ
Comment: yes on stand your ground from springfild ohio by jro
Comment: No the City Commission's resolution is an ill-considered move that, because of the vagueness of the language, simply makes ANY method of self-defense a criminal act. Their only 'approved' action is to become a victim. from Dayton/OH by Donna
Comment: Stand Your Ground laws are common sense; if attacked, one should not be REQUIRED to retreat from where they have a legal right to be. As a note, George Zimmerman's case was based on "Self Defense," NOT as incorrectly reported, "Stand Your Ground." One lady indicated a firearm is not an effective option for self defense. What better options would she recommend? What viable options would she recommend for a 110 lb. women if attacked by an 220 lb. man (or even 2-3 male assailants)? from Eaton, OH by Steve
Comment: Won't change my opinion on the proposed law. Does reinforce my considered opinion that The Dayton City Commissars are a bunch of uninformed pansies. from Huber Heights by Barry
Comment: But I am already opposed to the stand your ground law.
Comment: I feel that the stand your ground law should be approved, legal gun owners aren't idiots, its the criminals who are taking innocent lives. from Brookville, Oh by Nancy
Comment: The Dayton city council has no right to deny citizens the right to defend themselves. The places with the lowest crime rates are the ones where Open Carry and/or Concealed Carry is allowed. from Fairborn, OH. by Dave
Comment: I fully support all Stand Your Ground Legislation. How about this, legislation requiring an educated argument for the reasoning behind someone wanting to make it necessary for good people to have to run from an attacker, if they have the means to STOP THE THREAT! Yes, attackers get killed, yes, it is tragic... but obviously they (the attacker) did not have any common decency in the first place, or they wouldn't be in that position, would they. So why do we try to reason with them, protect them and not honest people? This legislation is not only ridiculous, but a serious step in the wrong direction in the preservation of liberty. I used to live in Dayton; I know the stupidity of the legislators there. I see it hasn't changed and remember now, why I left. By the way, All the $$ I make in Contracting overseas? Now goes to a city and state that appreciates, supports and allows me to defend my Rights and an American. Enjoy poverty, Dayton. from Palm Bay Florida by Sean Conover
Comment: Why on earth would they oppose a person's right to defend themselves if there life is in danger? Do they even understand what this law proposes? from Dayton, Oh by Chris
Comment: Anything the Dayton City Commission is for I'm Against. The DCC says stand your ground would increase gun violence when it would actually reduce it. Most criminals would think twice before robbing someone if they thought they might get shot. Right now only cops and criminals (did I repeat myself there?)can carry guns and the rest of us are victims of both groups. from Riverside, Oh by Irv
Comment: It's sad, but in today World you have to carry a weapon to protect yourself and your Family. No matter where you are at....your home,car or on the streets,you should be able to stand your ground!!! Who knows,one of these CCW permit holders may save you or a loved one from harms way. from Germantown,Ohio by Gary
Comment: I FERMLY support Stand Your Ground. I do not, and will not support any politician that opposes my right to defend myself! from Ohio by Rod
Comment: Dayton City Commission is just repeating Democrat talking points. The resolution is just partisan politics and nothing more. from Dayton OH by Finn
Comment: I understand some individuals reasoning about this law but now that it did get opposed would this decrease crime?, stating; If an individual is getting off work and has no protection? I guess this may be considered collateral damage from dayton/ohio by j
Comment: We all have a right to protect ourselves. Now that it's been opposed by the commission apparently nothing has ever happen to them but example if something did, would they change their mind? -I think so!-who would the stand your ground really protect? from Dayton/Oh by j
Comment: with a huge black and white trash population of Dayton all guns should be legal from xenia oh by matt
Comment: yes on stand your ground help the good and stop the bad from springfield by jro

Obama economists: Rosier picture if budget passed
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's top economists say the nation is on track to make economic progress over the next two years, but say it would do even better if Congress would enact the additional spending he proposed in his most recent budget. A divided Congress in an election year is not likely to heed that call.
