Action ALERT: Gun Owners in Clermont County Need Our Help TODAY!

It’s no secret that Ohio has a terrible “preemption” statute. Ohio’s preemption statute, ORC 9.68, is the statute that supposedly prevents local cities, counties or any “political subdivision” from creating their own gun-control laws, but it is terribly weak! It is so weak, in fact, that anti-gun county officials down at the Clermont County Fair have decided to violate it and hang illegal signs at their entrances telling gun owners

Republican Kyle Koehler derails Constitutional Carry

ACTION ITEM BELOW! Please scroll down and take action once you have read this article! You’ve sent thousands of emails. You made hundreds of phone calls.

Constitutional Carry continues to pick up momentum! Powered by a surging statewide grassroots demand to restore the right to bear arms across Ohio, Constitutional Carry held its first committee hearing Wednesday morning in the House Federalism Committee.

Action ALERT: Possible Final Vote TODAY on HB86!

I’ve got some great news! Yesterday afternoon, HB86 was voted out of the Senate Government Oversight Committee and referred to the Senate Rules Committee! The Senate Rules Committee meets this morning at 11:00am, and here’s the rub: If we light up their phone lines and email inboxes all morning, there’s a chance that HB86 might get voted out of the Senate today, as there is Senate floor session scheduled for 1:30pm!

How the "Duty to Retreat" Repeal Was Gutted

Dear Ohio Second Amendment Supporters, Yesterday morning, the Senate Government Oversight Committee adopted an amendment to Sub House Bill 228 that gutted the chief objective of the bill, which was to remove one’s “duty to retreat” from a violent attacker. The gutted bill then moved to the Senate Floor, passed, went to the House for a concurrence vote, and now waits a signature, veto or no-action from Governor Kasich. As gun

Action ALERT: Full-Blown Stand Your Ground Law a Possibility!

Ohio gun owners, I got back moments ago from the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus from this morning’s Senate Oversight Committee third hearing on Sub-HB228. This article is time sensitive and extremely important, and we’re asking to read it quickly and immediately take a few minutes to make TWO quick phone calls. More on that in a moment. But first, this morning’s committee hearing on Sub-HB228 went well. I offered testimony

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.
