The last time the turkey's tried this we smacked them around the courtroom a while, then the lawyer slam-dunked the case, and the law was abolished...

THIS time we're trying pre-emptive strikes. (Cheaper ;)

Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman and Columbus City Councilman Michael C. Mentel are leading the charge to pass another Assault Weapon Ban for the City of Columbus. Following this brief message are the names and contacts for the Mayor and all members of Columbus City Council. Please contact all of the persons listed by phone, mail and e-mail. We need to flood these elected and appointed representatives on Columbus City Council. As always, please be respectful.

The October 20th, 2004 Columbus Dispatch carried the breaking story of the proposed ban. According to the Dispatch Article, Mr. Mentel will hold public hearings next month to decide whether ban or regulate the sale and ownership of assault weapons. Also being considered are Tasers and Stun Guns. The first Public Hearing will be on November 4 at 5:00pm.

The Dispatch article was written by Mark Ferenchik and was on the front page.

Kacer, you're hella on top of things in Ohio, that's fer sure.

Do you see this as having a chance of passing?

Why did it get thrown out last time?

And most importantly, are there any new rollercoasters at Cedar Point?
