Quote of the day–Ken Blackwell

Gun control measures, from the slave gun bans of the 1700s South to the Brady Bill regulations of the 1990s have unfairly targeted black Americans and have worked to curtail a disproportionate number of their constitutional rights. Access to firearms was understood by our founders and many early American jurists as an essential aspect of full US citizenship, and it was for this reason that the Black Codes established after the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment — which constitutionally abolished slavery — prevented black freemen from owning guns.

  1. I met him at a Republican benefit dinner before the November election in Ohio.
    Nice guy, albeit linebacker sized.

    Sadly, due to the incompetence and graft of several of the Ohio Republicans (and some in Washington), he got his ass handed to him on election day.

    Maybe he’ll run again. I would vote for him again.
