In the wake of Baton Rouge Police Union urges Gov. Kasich to Suspend the Second Amendment saying “I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point”.
In the wake of the Baton Rouge police shooting that left three police dead, the Cleveland Police Union President Stephen Loomis has sent a letter to Gov. Kasich urging him to suspend the second amendment of the constitution in the city during the RNC convention. Commenting on the request, Loomis said the following to CNN:
“We are sending a letter to Gov. Kasich 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”.

Gov. Kasich offered a response through a spokesperson saying “Ohio Governors do not have the power to arbitrarily suspend federal and state constitutional rights or state law as suggested.”
This is the natural inclination of a despotic government. The only response they have to a heinous crime is to suspend the bill of rights? The retired officer in the video above practically spelled out what he thinks Kasich should be doing. He says “call the president” and “declare a state of emergency.” So now we get to watch the media trot out retired cops or whomever, so that they can call us cowards for not throwing away our constitution. If cops and elected leaders want to go down this wholly unconstitutional route, I can promise you… they won’t like the result and neither will we if we go along.
