Public schools were invented in America and are part of what makes us great!
The Ohio legislature was charged by the Supreme Court to fix the Ohio K-12 school system, and the political leadership has ignored the issue for 17 years! Seriously!!
The Second Amendment was ratified over 200 years ago in 1791 with a caveat that it applied to a well regulated militia. When I was born, regulation of firearms was an accepted covenant of modern society. We grew up in relative safety.
In 1975 the NRA began a campaign of lobbying for legislation financed by the international gun industry and designed for the unlimited proliferation of weapons in the United States of America. Times changed, our nation became polarized and in 2008 the US Supreme Court issued the Heller decision which, for the first time in United States history, articulated an individual’s right to bear arms.

Like any parent, I try my best to plan for a future of my kids and someday I hope to have grandchildren. It’s unfair that many of the wonders of the world are changing before our very eyes due to impacts of global warning and climate change that may prove to be irreversible. By acknowledging this reality and planning for it we fulfill our obligation of good stewardship to the land, air and water of Ohio.
