    I'm sure this is also listed in the Columbus Dispatch and Toledo Blade and all of the other semi-worthless rags in the Buckeye State. I'm just confident of it. It being in the Daily News, though, is heartening.

    I used to live down the street from that place during sophmore year of college. I'm glad they caught the other scumbag. I hope a needle finds it way into the arms of these worthless thugs. Robert Bragg is a hero in my book.

    That's one hell of a guy. Looks like confronting criminals does work.

    He was just lucky and without authority. I'm glad that it ended peacefully.

    Use this to counter the screeching over that one lady shooting the panhandler.

    Interesting. We identify him as a CHL holder and attribute the insight to the Buckeye Firearms association article. They called him a CHL holder and attribute their source to a newspaper (Dayton Daily News) that never reported him as a CHL holder. The newspaper identifies him as a national guardsman. He identified himself as a military policeman.

    I didn't see anything that said he was a CHL holder in Ohio, only that he used his own gun that he retrieved from his house. He wasn't even carrying it. As best as I can tell, somebody mutated the notion of the gun being personally owned to Bragg being a CHL holder somehow.

    As a military policeman, he would certainly be more than just your ordinary CHL holder, assuming he was a CHL holder.

    Two murderers that might have gotten away are now behind bars. That's good in my book. I'm not entirely happy about all of this "hero was conceal permit holder" smoke blowing on some level. I think it's great that it's getting out there that permit holders aren't psychos or egotists, but at the same time, statements similar to that are like they're calling it a license to kill.

    If it had been me, who is not a permit holder, I would like to think I'd have done the same thing to stop them. Would I be in jail because I'm not a permit holder? Does Ohio Open Carry law cover such a situation? I'm basing this on the lack of statement in the article that he concealed it.
    If he didn't conceal it, with the exception that it might have been held beside his leg on approach to conceal it from the killers, then it's open carry and there's no reason to bring up the permit. At the worst, it'd be brandishing, which the cops may or may not excuse in this example.

    I'm just thinking.... Anyone versed in Ohio OC law want to chime in?

    I hate to bring bad light to this guys but this is only the beginning. I know this situation very closely and it is unfortunate but there may be charges.

    Charges for what? He didn't shoot them,....wait uh oh, did the magazine in his gun carry more than 10 bullets? That is a stupid Dayton city ordanance, no high cap mags for you. What else could they charge him with,...inciting a panic or something? If he hadn't stopped those men, who'd to say they would have never been caught, he deserves a medal, or a steak dinner or something.

    Dayton is a screwed up place run by liberal democrat anti gunners...but I can't imagine any jury convicting him. I can't speak for the leadership but if Dayton brings charges against him I suspect our group BFA will probably consider starting a defense fund for him.

    With passage of HB347 into law such silly ordinances banning high cap magazines or so called assault weapons bans died . Now state law reigns supreme.

    Oops, there you go. Very good!

    Still, this isn't just a save by a CHL person. It is by a trained professional, just not on duty.
