Do Not Patronize

A community collaboration and comprehensive statewide database of places turning away your business.

Today Ohioans For Concealed Carry filed a lawsuit in Lorain County seeking to compel the City of Oberlin to comply with state law.  Contrary to what you may have read in the news the City of Oberlin's recent legislation to "allow guns in parks" did not comply with state law.  State law prohibits a city such as Oberlin from regulating the possession, transfer, or transaction of firearms.

Oberlin's "fix" was to illegally prohibit possession of "unlawful" firearms -- which remain undefined in the ordinance.  Despite OFCC addressing council and telling them what they were about to do was illegal they proceeded anyway in a 4-3 vote.

What follows is OFCC's press release.  The complaint filed with the court can be read here.  Donations accepted here.

Traditionally, just where does one expect violence?  At a school? At the shopping mall?
What about in our home while we're relaxing?

There was a time when there was no internet.  Learning of violence in public places seemed unheard of. We'd rarely hear of such horrific incidents such as we've recently watched take place in a shopping mall in Kenya.

Ohioans for Concealed Carry felt compelled to bring Reporter, Maria Scali's recent irresponsible behavior to her home station's attention (Fox8, WJW, in Cleveland, Ohio).

Ms. Scali was in Oberlin, Ohio during a recent event where law abiding gun owners were protesting against Oberlin's local law that prohibits guns in city parks, which is in conflict with a state statute that permits people to carry firearms in most public places, including parks. Below is the email sent on September 24th, 2013 by OFCC.

This letter will call to your attention the unprofessional behavior of
employee Maria Scali, whose recent actions might have endangered a large
group of adults and children.
