2nd Amendment in the News

Ohio Gun Owners is Under Attack!

  The radical left is attacking Ohio Gun Owners and I need your help to fight back! As many of you noticed, OGO’s online fundraising ability ‘went dark’ some time ago, severing our ability to raise support online, at the worst possible time. You see, OGO has spent heavily all session long, mobilizing tens of thousands of gun owners who sent emails to Columbus, insisting that legislators oppose moderate RINO’s and Democrats’ efforts to

Gun Rationing in H.R. 5717!

With all that has been going on in our state (and our country as a whole) over the last month, sales of firearms and ammunition have been skyrocketing! It’s easy to see why. It seems like every hour brings more concerning news about the Coronavirus and the state and federal government’s reaction to it. That’s one of the things that makes America the most incredible country  on earth; we can exercise

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

Legal Threats to Shut Down Ohio Gun Owners?!

Any day now I expect a loud knock at my door. A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations and their pals in our General Assembly — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “SEE YOU IN COURT!” Sadly, these ugly tactics are becoming commonplace across America today as anti-freedom forces routinely abuse our legal system to target those

House Leadership Advances Gun-Control Bill, Kills Vitale's Stand-Your-Ground Amendment to HB228!

I’m afraid I have bad news (again). News broke last night that HB228 is dead for the remainder of the summer session, with a chance they may call it up in the fall. As you know, HB228 is the watered-down gun bill that we were ready to FIX with an amendment by Representative Nino Vitale into a rock-solid Stand-Your-Ground bill! On top of that, State and Local Governement Committee Chairwoman Marlene Anielski’s office put out a bulletin late

Gun-Control Hearings Wednesday - ACTION NEEDED!

The committee hearings for Governor Kasich’s gun-control omnibus bills (HB585 and SB288) are happening Wednesday morning, and both committees need to hear from gun owners right away! So I’ll cut right to the point and ask you to do two things: First, please email the members of the House State and Local Government Committee and demand they OPPOSE HB585! Up to this point, we’ve been asking you to contact your

Not guilty, not ashamed, and no share of the blame

It would be easy to sit back in the aftermath of Florida and let the gun-grabbers lie repeatedly without interruption about our Second Amendment rights. But you know that’s not who we are here at Ohio Gun Owners. We’ve taken to social media, mail, email and we’ll be in the halls of the Statehouse in Columbus tomorrow to combat the disinformation being spewed throughout the Fake News media and on

OGO Stand-Your-Ground Bill Ready for Cosponsors!

I’m asking you to please read this email in its entirety and take action below! But before you take action, here’s a couple of things you need to know about the bill. First, the Ohio Stand-Your-Ground bill

This is an Ohio Gun Owners' Member Action ALERT regarding legislation moving today at the Statehouse. Please read this in its entirety and take ACTION!

But even if you have, I hope you’ll take a moment RIGHT NOW to do it again!

Chicago man with concealed-carry permit fatally shoots would-be robber

Chicago – When this 23-year-old man went out to walk his dog in the 8200 block of South Ingleside in Chicago, he brought his lawfully carried concealed pistol along with him. So when an armed gunman shot the 23-year-old in a brazen daylight robbery attempt, the gun owner drew his own firearm and shot back, striking the suspect in the head, killing him. The Cook County medical examiner confirmed that
