Shooting has Ohio lawmakers considering security

By admin Published: January 10, 2011

CINCINNATI: Members of Congress from Ohio say the weekend shooting of Arizona colleague Gabrielle Giffords has them thinking more about security.

But the Ohio lawmakers indicate they're not willing to make changes to the ways they interact with constituents.

Cincinnati Republican Steve Chabot tells the Cincinnati Enquirer that being accessible is part of the job.

Asked about security by the Plain Dealer, Toledo Democrat Marcy Kaptur said on Sunday: ''If we learn how to behave ourselves as a republic, we shouldn't need it.''

New Republican U.S. House Speaker John Boehner of Southwest Ohio said Sunday the violence in Arizona should not bar lawmakers from their duties to represent constituents.
