Action ALERT: Yesterday's Success and Today's Vote on HB86!

Yesterday saw a lot of success towards our goal of fixing last General Assembly’s HB228’s debacle, and it’s all thanks to the calls and emails and social media posts you’ve all been sending! As you all probably remember, there are two bills working their way through the legislature that are intended to stop common firearms from becoming “dangerous ordnance” on HB228’s enactment date of March 28th. The first bill is Senate Bill

Action ALERT: Vote likely tomorrow on HB86!

The word at the Statehouse is that there will be a vote on HB86 TOMORROW in the Ohio House of Representatives. So please read this short email and then take action below! As you know, due to a blundering oversight in last year’s HB228 (that the bill’s hapless managers and sponsors never caught because they weren’t reading their own bill), unless a fix is enacted before March 28th of this year, gun owners

Success in today's committee!

Lawmakers react to pressure. Former US Senator Everett Dirksen may have phrased it best when he said, “When I feel the heat, I see the light.” Well, let me tell you, lawmakers in the Ohio General Assembly are seeing the light right now on fixing HB228’s huge blunder — especially in the Ohio House! A few days ago, before Ohio Gun Owners got involved, the Ohio General Assembly wasn’t making any

Action ALERT: House to introduce FIX to HB228 today!

In only the last five days, over fifteen thousand members and supporters of Ohio Gun Owners have contacted their own state representatives and senators at the Statehouse demanding they fix the disastrous HB228. To be blunt, that’s a staggering number in legislative politics. And I’m happy to report to you that they are responding! During yesterday’s sponsor testimony on Senator Kristina Roegner’s SB53, the chairman of the Government Oversight Committee stated

Action ALERT: Senate FIX to HB228 Introduced!

Your phone calls, emails and Tweets demanding a fix to stop HB228 from making felons out of law-abiding gun owners on March 28th are working! Only moments ago, Senator Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) introduced Senate Bill 53 which would FIX HB228 and prevent its disastrous enactment. As you know, due to a drafting error in last year’s HB228 that was perpetuated by the incompetence of the bill sponsors and managers, unless a fix is

Action ALERT: Massive Ohio Gun Ban to Take Effect March 24th - Act NOW!

This is an Ohio Gun Owners Emergency Alert. Please read this memo in its entirety and take action below. Effective March 24th (in just a few weeks), gun owners in Ohio will likely see many firearms become illegal, thanks to the gross negligence of the bill sponsors and bill managers of last year’s House Bill 228. Specifically, the bill’s sponsor, Representative Sarah LaTourette (R-Chesterland), and bill managers Jim Irvine and Dean Rieck

Help us STOP H.R. 8!

Nancy Pelosi is working around the clock to deal a kill shot to our gun rights as she works to pass H.R. 8. This bill would create what the gun-grabbers have always wanted: a national database of every gun and gun owner in the country! This bill already has a whopping 230 cosponsors – more than the number of votes needed to pass this bill. But cosponsoring a bill and

Congress to Take Up National Gun Registry Legislation TODAY!

As we work around the clock trying to add Ohio to the growing list of Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry states, we are also paying close attention to the war against gun owners going on in Washington, D.C. That’s why I’m writing you today, as it appears likely that Congress will be holding hearings TODAY on H.R. 8! H.R. 8 is being sold to gun owners as an innocent ‘Universal Background
