On Sunday, the day before the start of the Republican National Convention, Stephen Loomis, the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, sent a letter to Ohio Governor John Kasich asking him to restrict Ohio’s “open carry” law for Cuyahoga County for a week:
We are …. requesting assistance from him. He could very easily do some kind of executive order or something — I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point.
They [constitutionalists, presumably] can fight about it after the RNC, or they [the governor, presumably] can lift it after the RNC, but I want him to absolutely outlaw open-carry in Cuyahoga County until this RNC is over.
