Woman stood her ground

June 23, 2013

To the editor: This is in response to the story about Tammy Takach, the homeowner who thwarted a home invasion and robbery by holding the useless jerk at gunpoint. You go girl. We need more of this....

I meant to say agree and disagrees instead of likes and dislikes.

ohnson's bill would also arm Medicaid fraud investigators appointed by the attorney general and expand the "castle doctrine" to apply outside of the home in any place a gun owner "lawfully has a right to be."

"Not everyone is a track star and the legal duty to retreat in Ohio law places the elderly, the infirm and those of us who have gained a few pounds at risk," Deeken said. "It's absurd that in order to satisfy the law that I must flee to protect my loved ones. 'Castle doctrine' was a great first step but [HB 203] is where the law should be."

Becker is also toiling on legislation that would give public employees who have a concealed-carry license the right to carry guns inside the Statehouse, including the House and Senate floors.

Terry Johnson, of Southern Ohio, introduced a bill that would allow people from outside the state to carry a concealed gun in Ohio if they hold a concealed handgun license issued in another state. The proposal included in House Bill 203 would apply only to licenses issued by states that recognize concealed handgun licenses issued in Ohio.

In addition, HB 203 would change the training requirement to obtain a concealed handgun license. Current law states a person must go through 12 hours of training. HB 203 doesn’t set a minimum number of hours required for competency.

Johnson’s bill would also arm Medicaid fraud investigators appointed by the attorney general and expand the “castle doctrine” to apply outside of the home in any place a gun owner “lawfully has a right to be.”

Ohio Expanding gun laws and CCW laws.

House Bill 191, introduced by Republican Rep. John Becker, of Southwest Ohio, would strip a clause from Ohio’s definition of “automatic firearm” that classifies a semi-automatic weapon that fires more than 31 rounds without reloading as “automatic.” The legislation would keep language that defines “automatic firearm” as a gun that fires multiple rounds with a single trigger pull — a more traditional definition.

House Bill 210 would stop the state’s law enforcement agencies from destroying legal, confiscated firearms and ammunition. Instead, agencies would be compelled to sell the ordnance to a federally licensed dealer.

The measure also gives law enforcement the option to sell the guns “for sporting use or as a museum piece or collectors’ item.”

The ninety percent lie. My first question is 90% of who? A Quinnipiac University poll called here and asked about extended background checks. If this is the poll they used it is highly biased and weighted liberal. Not a fair representation of the minds of the people. Do you think that 90% of the people in TX, Ark. Ak. Oh, Pa, WY, WV, AZ,VA,NV, ND,SD, NC, or SC wanted the crap bill that Manchin Toomey were trying to push on US? Ninety Percent my Butt.

Senator Manchin's political ad running on TV now makes me angry. Senator Manchin is a liar, and his ad is misleading. The NRA should throw him out as should the voters in Wva. He calls for criminal back round checks we already have , and act like he is getting picked on for that. He is getting called out on his extension of background checks, banning of so called assault weapons and registration which will lead to confiscation. Manchin is a liar we have back round checks we don't need more and we don't need his lies.

The Second Amendment gives me the right to own any type of weapons I want. Even military style automatic weapons if I have the proper licenses and can afford them. They are very expensive.

If I want to take out some thug that is breaking into my home with a 9 mm pistol or bazooka that is my choice.

Fritz do you own a weapon and are you prepared to defend your home from invasion.

Fritzopup- Wherever would she, or anyone else for that matter, get a "military assault rifle"? The only people that have access to those are the military. Are you referring to an AR-15? If so, that is just an ordinary .223 hunting rifle. It's just dressed up in black plastic instead of an old fashioned wooden stock. Hey, maybe that's what it is! You don't like them because they're black! Politicians coined the term "assault rifle" because they know words are scary and sheeple fall for it.

Oh, Fritz, before I forget. The rifle also has much more energy than a handgun. The chances of having to fire more than 2 rounds into a threat to stop it are minimal at best. Especially when using high performance law enforcement grade ammunition.

Fritzopup, I have a semiautomatic rifle available for home defense for various reasons. First and foremost the aluminum quad rail allows the mounting of a vertical foregrip for better control of the weapon, I also have a high intensity light for target identification. Also, the AR-15 platform allows the mounting of a holographic sight for easier target acquisition, along with a backup iron sight if the electronic sight fails. The 5.56mm cartridge when loaded with the correct ammunition is not known to over penetrate barriers, so there is less of a chance of a bullet passing through a threat and exiting my home. Because of low recoil and therefore better controllability my wife can more effectively deal with multiple threats more efficiently than with a handgun. Finally, it has the capability to change magazines easily when under stress so if you get "click" instead of "bang" the problem can be fixed in a hurry.

Fritzopup, do you know what an "assault rifle" is? Can you tell me what makes an "assault rifle?" I highly doubt you can since you think such weapons have 50 round magazines.

Fritzopup, I have to ask you this. What if there were 3 armed intruders? A standard capacity 30 round magazine in the AR-15 platform would be a good thing to have. 50 round magazines to my knowledge don't exist for the AR-15.

Note that she successfully defended herself without using a military assault rifle with a 50 shot magazine. One loaded shotgun/handgun was more than enough. It wasn't "the government" storming her house it was one intruder. Get the point?

I'm so glad that people are starting to realize that their life is their responsibility and standing up against the no good thugs that would otherwise cause them harm. This letter, this story sends a great message. People, your safety depends on you. Arm yourself well!
