"The Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association is asking the governor to suspend state law allowing the open carry of firearms for the duration of Republican National Convention. Alarmed by the succession of deadly police shootings, including Sunday's deaths in Baton Rouge, police union president Steve Loomis said he is appealing to the governor to declare an emergency. He said the state's open carry law is making the job of securing the convention 'much more difficult.' ... 'Somebody's got to do something' Loomis said Sunday. 'What we have now is completely irresponsible.' Gov. John Kasich does not have the power to arbitrarily suspend federal and state constitutional rights or state laws, spokeswoman Emmalee Kalmbach said. Under Ohio law, legal gun owners can carry firearms in plain sight." (07/17/16)

    Yes, let’s disarm all cops for the duration of the convention. And afterward as well. Only normal citizens, who are nearly universally peaceful, should have access to firearms; police, who are nearly universally violent, should not.
