Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland is backing the Heller decision handed down today by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"In a statement, Strickland said he agreed with the decision "which emphasizes what so many have long understood: The right to bear arms is a fundamental civil right like the freedoms of speech and to vote. And it's important that governments at all levels not infringe on those fundamental rights."
That's a good thing. Firearms owners were a big part of his election to the big office in the Buckeye State. His belief in the Second Amendment also has appeared to be genuine, even going back to his days in Congress.
