Hagan, Foley: Pro-life gun bill appropriate in wake of anti-abortion proposals



Published: Thu, June 27, 2013 @ 4:14 a.m.

COLUMBUS

Two Democratic state lawmakers want gun businesses to disclose the potential health risks of firearms ownership before completing sales to consumers.

State Reps. Bob Hagan of Youngstown, D-58th, and Mike Foley of Cleveland, D-14th, say their “pro-life” gun legislation is appropriate, given disclosure requirements added by Republicans to the biennial budget bill this week that will affect women seeking abortions.

“Each year in Ohio, over 1,000 people lose their lives from firearm-related injuries, and thousands more end up in hospital emergency rooms,” Hagan said. “And yet we have no laws to ensure individuals buying guns in our state really understand that capacity for serious injury or even death that a firearm holds.”

He added, “This is a pro-life bill. It’s protecting life as we know it.”

Bob hagan has clearly lost it. With all the issues he could be focusing on he chooses this one. Please when your current term ends save us all and go away!

Mr Hagan should check with emergency room personnel. One of the most common injuries brought to them is a badly cut hand -- sustained while trying to slice a bagel in the kitchen. What next, Mr Hagan? Require training to be licensed to carry an unsliced bagel out of Panera or Kravitz's?

That is unless, of course, the life we are talking about is a tissue mass in the uterus of a woman. Maybe we need warning labels on the door latch of all automobiles. Buckwheat really needs to just go away.

My position on this "Hagan issue" has been summed by all of the previous posts.

One wonders why he is reelected and the same mentality applies to Obama.

I fear for the future of this country.
