ACTION ALERT: Your Calls Needed!

Your pressure is working, but we can’t let up now! Thanks to your calls and emails, Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill (H.B. 201) was introduced with over two dozen co-sponsors. And now H.B. 201 has already had “sponsor” and “proponent” testimony! But now it is time to crank up the pressure to make sure the House Federalism Committee knows that there is real grassroots support for Constitutional Carry. Constitutional Carry isn’t

Ohio Action Alert: Call the House Federalism Committee!

On Tuesday afternoon the House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee heard “proponent testimony” on H.B. 201, Constitutional Carry. I was happy to offer testimony on behalf of Ohio Gun Owners, our members and supporters in support for Constitutional Carry! But it is not enough – not NEARLY enough – for me to simply stand there and speak in favor of the bill! Now that we’ve cleared the hurdles of getting

It's time: Call the House Federalism Committee!

I just received word yesterday that Constitutional Carry will be heard TODAY at 4:00pm in room 115 at the Statehouse! On the agenda? “Proponent testimony.” In other words, now is the time for gun owners across Ohio to make their voices heard that you want Ohio to be the 14th state to pass Constitutional Carry! Constitutional Carry is the simple concept that if you’re legal to own a firearm, you’re

Constitutional Carry Clears First Hurdle

Yesterday afternoon in room 115 of the Statehouse in Columbus, Constitutional Carry took its first important step. Ohio Gun Owners’ bill sponsor, Rep. Ron Hood, gave “sponsor testimony” on H.B. 201 and introduced Constitutional Carry to the members of the House Federalism Committee! As I sat there to witness it, I realized we are a ways off from passing Constitutional Carry into law. But I also knew it was the

Constitutional Carry Sponsor Testimony SCHEDULED!

The Ohio Gun Owners Constitutional Carry bill is picking up more steam by the minute – read below! After being introduced less than two weeks ago, we were afraid H.B. 201 was going to be referred to the less-friendly House State and Local Government committee. But instead, it was referred to the Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee! That is good news because nine of the thirteen members are already cosponsors.

Constitutional Carry Makes Successful First Move!

It may only have been introduced on Wednesday of last week, but Constitutional Carry just took a huge step forward!You already knew that Constitutional Carry has 24 sponsors. And you already knew that we were waiting to find out which committee it would be assigned to. Now, just yesterday, H.B. 201 was assigned to the House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee! But here’s the good news: NINE of the thirteen

H.B. 201: The Next Step for Constitutional Carry

When House Bill 201 was read into the journal last Wednesday afternoon, I’ll admit I felt a little excited! You see, Constitutional Carry is a major pro-gun bill. Most of the time, when politicians aren’t on the outright warpath against our gun rights, they expect gun owners like us to just be happy more of our rights aren’t being taken away. And IF gun owners can bark loud enough, the

Rep Ron Hood Delivers: Constitutional Carry INTRODUCED!

Huge news! Early this afternoon, Representative Ron Hood (R-Ashville) submitted Ohio Gun Owners’ Constitutional Carry bill for introduction. The introduction of Constitutional Carry, H.B. No. 201, represents a major opportunity for gun owners in the Buckeye State. Just a few years ago, only two states enjoyed being able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights without first begging for permission or paying taxes and fees. But gun owners have been rising
