It’s another week that our General Assembly is meeting in Columbus, and another week Republicans are moving gun-control bills!

Kasich's gun-control bill could BAN AR15's!

If you’ve been watching the Ohio House of Representatives pick their new Speaker, you already know it has been a dazzling display of discord.

ACTION ALERT - Federalism Committee Chairwoman Trying to KILL the Zeltwanger Amendment?!?!

We don’t have much time. This afternoon at 4:00pm in the Federalism Committee, Representative Paul Zeltwanger is moving an amendment to HB228 that would make the bill a 100% rock solid Stand-Your-Ground bill. Alarmingly, rumors are swirling around the Statehouse that Federalism Committee Chairwoman Kristina Roegner is going to move to KILL the Zeltwanger Amendment without even so much as a vote. Chairwoman Roegner has already been blocking HB201, the Constitutional Carry bill

The week ahead is critical for gun owners in Ohio because we need to kill a gun-control bill, but we also need to help advance a pro-gun bill! As you probably know, there’s a watered-down version of self-defense reform working its way through the General Assembly, called House Bill 228. Not only is it incredibly weak, but it will likely get weakened further as it works its way through the

Aiding and Abetting Mass Murder

86 minutes. The Houston Chronicle waited 86 minutes before they began beating the drum for gun control in the wake of a mass shooting at a Houston metro school this morning that has claimed 10 lives so far.
