Senate Action ALERT: Pro-gun amendment possibility for weak "Stand-Your-Ground" bill!

As many gun owners already know, House Bill 228 is awaiting committee assignment in the Ohio Senate. As written, HB228 does a couple of good things, but it leaves so much on the table when it comes to much needed self-defense reforms in Ohio.

Our backs are against the wall!

We’re only days away from the November 6 elections and frankly, it’s “do-or-die” time.

Bloomberg's in Ohio..

Michael Bloomberg is on the warpath in Ohio. As the keynote speaker at a gun control event hosted a few weeks ago, Bloomberg railed against your rights, bragging about “landing punches” and that your Second Amendment rights are “on the ropes.” He concluded by saying “we’re getting stronger and stronger!” Bloomberg is zeroing in on Ohio as one of his main targets because he’s hopeful that if he can keep
