The war against gun owners and our precious Second Amendment is more intense now than any time in American history.
The FAKE NEWS media is trying to demonize us.
Liberal Democrats are on the war-path.
Republicans are caving.
And anyone who stands up against their radical agenda needs to be silenced, by any means necessary.
That’s why “The Trace” and “Everytown For Criminal Safety” — Fake News and political organizations PERSONALLY OWNED AND FUNDED BY MICHAEL BLOOMBERG — have turned their attention on us.
They want to shut Ohio Gun Owners down because we are ruthlessly effective at exposing radical gun grabbers in the legislature at election time — like we’re doing RIGHT NOW.
I need to know if you think we should curtail our election programs to focus only on this threat, or if we should press ahead and ignore the threat — or fight like hell and deal with this threat at the same time!
Dear Second Amendment Defender,
Some of the biggest enemies to freedom and the Second Amendment in the entire country are coming after Ohio Gun Owners — and they won’t rest until they have shut us down for good.
No, this isn’t a joke.
Our nation is in incredible turmoil right now as Antifa thugs are rioting in our streets, burning down our businesses, and even killing cops all over the country.
Here in Ohio we’ve seen violent looting, police cars being destroyed in broad daylight, an out of control mob that tried to penetrate and destroy our beautiful Statehouse — and extortion attempts by “protesters” demanding political changes while threatening violence.
ANYONE who stands up to this lawlessness is labeled a racist! ANYONE who stands up for law and order is attacked! ANYONE who stands up for peace officers is declared a fascist!
But here at Ohio Gun Owners, we’ve never wavered in our support of the Second Amendment and for the values that have made this country — and our beautiful state — a shining light to the entire world.
And for standing up against these thugs, I have received over a dozen death threats as well as threats against my family that are too graphic to describe here.
Honestly, I’ve grown somewhat used to this after fighting for gun owners for the last ten years in multiple states.
But now “The Trace” and “Everytown for Gun Safety” are gunning for Ohio Gun Owners, attacking the work we do for gun rights as hate-speech, and they are doing everything they can to get the IRS to shut our doors forever!
Of course, “The Trace” and Everytown are the epitome of Fake News Media, funded and set up by Michael Bloomberg himself in 2015 to “report” on anything that supports their agenda to destroy American freedom through gun-control!
That’s why they are attacking Ohio Gun Owners, urging the IRS to yank our not-for-profit status which would effectively shut us down, just weeks before the 2020 General Election season is set to kick into high gear!
And that’s why I’m writing you today.
You see, everything is on the line here in Ohio this fall. While the presidential election is capturing most of the news, we can’t forget that the Ohio General Assembly is being directly targeted by Michael Bloomberg for a takeover.
Bloomberg’s goal is simple.
The more America-hating socialists he can put in power in Columbus, the greater his chances of ramming through his DeWine-backed gun-control agenda of a statewide gun registry and ‘Red Flag Gun Confiscation’ laws!
There’s so much that we must do to expose radical gun grabbers in these races; the very last thing we have time (or money) for right now is a trumped-up legal threat from the IRS at the behest of Bloomberg’s groups!
When I first started fighting for gun rights a decade ago, I never would have dreamed that things like this would happen in America, much less in Ohio.
But if the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that the left will use bogus allegations, manufactured dossiers and politically driven ‘special prosecutors’ in their attempt to try to destroy President Trump, Judge Kavanaugh or anyone else who stands in their way or stands up for freedom.
So I guess we should not be that surprised that our political opponents are doing the exact same thing to Ohio Gun Owners!
Sadly, it doesn’t matter that Ohio Gun Owners plays by the rules. It doesn’t matter that we don’t break laws (or even bend them) like so many leftist organizations do.
The only reason that we’re being attacked by these far-left radicals is because we fight viciously for the Second Amendment and we are ruthlessly effective at exposing radical socialists at election time!
They simply must destroy us.
That’s why, as you’ll see, I’ve linked you to a brief three-question Ohio Gun Owners’ Member Ballot for your review.
This is a member driven organization. It always has been, and that is why I’m counting on receiving your advice right away.
As it stands right now, I do not have the funds to expose the radical socialists who are trying to destroy our Second Amendment during the fall elections while preparing for an expensive legal attack on Ohio Gun Owners at the same time.
In other words, our rights will be on the chopping block if a Bloomberg-initiated accusation sidelines us when we are needed the most.
Sure, we’ve done nothing wrong. But that doesn’t matter, because even when we win these bogus fights, the cost in time and money are extremely expensive.
The truth is, even when groups like ours defeat these bogus allegations, the costs in time and money are extremely expensive.
For example, not long ago our sister organization in Iowa defeated a 47-page bogus ethics complaint that was filed against them by embittered lawmakers, after Iowa passed Stand-Your-Ground law.
But it came at the cost of thousands of dollars in legal fees and over a solid week of time that they had to spend in responding to the charges that were filed against them!
Sadly, I’m afraid this kind of nonsense just goes with the territory these days.
The gun-grabbers know that many people simply won’t fight back, as the costs add up and the media is allowed to drag your name through the mud — as they are doing to Ohio Gun Owners.
They know that if gun owners like you and me just give up,
they will be free to take a sledgehammer to our most cherished freedoms without ever having to face angry voters here in Ohio!
I’ve never, ever believed that’s the way politics should work — not for a second. I still believe politicians work for us, not the other way around. That’s why I started Ohio Gun Owners in the first place.
Without organizations like Ohio Gun Owners out there to call politicians to the carpet for their records, I shudder to think how many MORE of our freedoms would have already been consumed by the poison of tyranny.
That’s why they want to silence us so badly ahead of the 2020 General Election — so we can’t expose their radical gun control agenda!
Just a few of the races where Ohio Gun Owners needs to expose gun grabbers using our email program, targeted social media, and radio and internet ads include:
>>> Ohio House District 27; Tom Brinkman, an absolute rockstar
for gun owners who sponsored the Ohio Gun Owners Constitutional Carry bill and cosponsored Stand-Your-Ground, is being challenged by leftist radical Sara Bitter, an advocate for Universal Gun Owner Registration, magazine bans, waiting periods, AR15-bans and Red Flag Gun Confiscation orders!
>>> Ohio House District 67; Kris Jordan, a close ally of Ohio Gun Owners and cosponsor on all of our pro-gun bills, is being attacked by Rachael Morocco, a vicious opponent of Stand-Your-Ground law who is endorsed by Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety!
>>> Senate District 24; Senator Matt Dolan – the backstabbing bill sponsor of Governor DeWine’s gun-control bill, is desperate to win reelection so he can continue his attacks on gun owners by introducing bills that would track, trace and register gun owners like sex-offenders and pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders as well!
Of course, these are just a couple of the legislative races where OGO needs to be active in exposing the records of anti-gun radicals, but we haven’t even talked about the Congressional races!
That’s why our 2020 election program is so vitally important!
In fact, until just a few days ago, my hope was to run a massive program throughout October — using mail, email, digital ads, and even hard-hitting radio and TV ads if I could raise the money to pay for them.
But I’m afraid, as it stands right now, I won’t be able to afford to deal with a legal challenge to Ohio Gun Owners’ non-profit status AND still fund our election programs at the same time.
I know we’ve done nothing wrong. But neither did President Trump when he ran for office in 2016. That doesn’t matter. Today’s insane leftists want to DESTROY anyone who stands against their hate-America agenda and they’ll do anything to accomplish their goal. So we simply must prepare for the worst.
That’s why I need you to tell me what to do:
OPTION #1: Should I ignore the attacks from Bloomberg’s organizations, hope the IRS doesn’t try to close our doors forever, and go all-in with a full-scale program to expose anti-gun candidates this fall?
OPTION #2: Should I just give in to the pressure and cancel our election program, play it safe, and focus exclusively on getting ready to defend OGO from these spurious legal attacks?
I know what I want to do. But I don’t have millions of dollars sitting around in the bank like BILLIONAIRE Michael Bloomberg and his pals do.
Ohio Gun Owners has always run on a shoestring budget, and that’s especially true with so many Ohioans recovering from the Covid-19 debacle.
OPTION #3 just really isn’t an “option” without a massive and IMMEDIATE influx of funds from Ohio Gun Owners’ members and supporters.
I know that’s asking a lot, but the stakes couldn’t be higher and doing nothing is just not an option.
I don’t know about you, but the idea that an America-hating ultra-leftist organization can simply accuse Ohio Gun Owners of being an evil organization and expect us to shut down makes my blood boil!
They are the ones who hate freedom! They are the ones who hate our President! They are the ones who want to silence the voice of Second Amendment supporters everywhere!
And I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand by and do nothing while hordes of raging socialists in Washington and our own Statehouse (being backed up by violent Antifa thugs who are burning their way across this country) try to strip us of our precious Second Amendment freedoms!
The election season will be in full swing shortly, and the attacks on our gun rights are only going to heat up, so I need to hear from you right away.
Ohio Gun Owners
P.S. Michael Bloomberg and his bought-and-paid-for “media” outlets are viciously attacking Ohio Gun Owners and are doing everything they can to close Ohio Gun Owners’ doors forever!
With the 2020 election cycle just about to kick off, I have some very critical decisions to make and I have to make them fast –- so I need to hear from you right away.
