Ohio Gun Owners 2020 Pre-Primary Survey RESULTS!

The 2020 Ohio Primaries are rapidly approaching! The Ohio Primary is gun owners’ opportunity to make the BIGGEST impact for gun rights of the entire election cycle. Simply put, the winners of the Ohio Senate and Ohio House of Representatives races will have a huge impact on gun rights for the next two or four years. That’s why I’m hoping you’ll take a few minutes to scan through our 2020

Here is what Ohio gun owners face in 2020

Next session is going to be explosive with Governor DeWine and a growing number of Republican lawmakers determined to pass ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation here in Ohio. And no, he’s not calling it that anymore. In fact, both DeWine and Lt. Governor Husted are working around the clock with key legislators as well as their pals in the fake news media to try to rebrand this bill. The worst

Senate Stand-Your-Ground Bill Scheduled for Proponent Testimony!

The Senate Stand-Your-Ground bill, Senate Bill 237 by Senator Terry Johnson, has been scheduled for proponent testimony! This is a very important event, so please mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 3rd at 3:15pm in the South Hearing Room of the Ohio Senate, and Site, please plan on attending. SB237 is the mirror image of House Bill 381 by Representatives Candice Keller and Ron Hood, and if passed it will

Gun-Control Hearing Tomorrow: Urge your Senator to vote NO on HB123!

Tomorrow morning at 10:15am in the south hearing room of the Ohio Senate, gun-control House Bill 123 will be hearing “opponent testimony” from citizens like you and me. HB123, as we have explained previously, is a social engineering bill that would pave the way for gun-control organizations like Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and Sandy Hook Promise to enter our schools under the guise of teaching “violence and suicide prevention,”

DeWine/Husted Gun-Control Hearing: ZERO video or recording allowed!

I could hardly believe my ears when Ohio Senate Government Oversight Committee Chairman Bill Coley’s staffer shoved the “request form” back into my hands. “Chairman Coley has denied your request, you do not have permission to record today’s meeting.” I couldn’t even believe it. In the dozens and dozens of committee hearings I have attended for our membership ever since we founded Ohio Gun Owners three years ago, I’ve never

Action ALERT: DeWine/Husted Gun-Control Hearing!

When the Dayton killer walked into the Oregon district on the morning of August 4 to execute his murderous rampage, the rights of law-abiding gun owners like you and me were thrown onto the chopping block. And tomorrow afternoon at 3:30pm in the Senate Government Oversight Committee, the first attack will commence as Jon Husted and Mike DeWine’s gun-control bill, SB221, has its first hearing. That’s why I’m urging you

SPOOKY Gun-Control: Urge your Senator to vote NO on HB123!

If there’s one thing we know for sure here at Ohio Gun Owners, it is that the radical left is bulldozing harder than ever before to dismantle the traditional fabric of our state and nation. The Democrat party has been hijacked to the point of embracing pure communism, and many jelly-spined Republican politicians have adopted a “kowtow policy” in response to their demands. So with “our side” on the run with

Stand Your Ground Bill Introduced!

I’ve got some great news! First of all, your emails from yesterday urging Ohio’s House Republican Leadership to stop fast-tracking HB354 through the committee process seems to be working, as they pulled it from Thursday’s committee agenda. (For more information about the perils in HB354, please see the email from yesterday below) This is good news for now, but we cannot stop pounding on them, not for a moment! So

Deadline TOMORROW: Has Your State Rep Cosponsored Stand-Your-Ground?

“Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.” It’s a popular phrase, but the truth is we need one now more than ever! That’s why I’m so happy that Representatives Candice Keller (R-Middletown) and Ron Hood (R-Ashville) are introducing Stand-Your-Ground legislation for Ohio Gun Owners’ members and supporters! The bad news is, Site, the deadline for your State Representative to add their name to this bill as a cosponsor ends

Action ALERT: Husted and DeWine ATTACK!!

Governor Mike DeWine and Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted launched their official attack on our gun rights last Monday, and it is bad. Gun-control radicals in our legislature and across the state are overjoyed, giddy that “Republicans” are buckling to their pressure and introducing gun-control bills they couldn’t dream of getting passed in Ohio. Democrat Senate Minority leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) praised them, saying “I’m encouraged by Gov. DeWine’s message
