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. It doesn’t provide immunity from prosecution for citizens forced to use a firearm for self-defense, it doesn’t establish a pre-trial immunity hearing so that gun owners

Allen County Sheriff's deputies use existing law to stop school shooting!

Governor John Kasich, Representative Mike Henne and Senators John Eklund and Stephanie Kunzie want gun owners to believe their lies. They want you to believe their lies that we can be more safe if we just give up a little freedom. They want you to believe their lies that if we pass more laws criminals will magically obey them. And they disguise those lies with the blatant lie that Ohio needs to pass

Tell the Speaker: Ohio Law Already Equips Law-Enforcement to Do Their Jobs!

Governor John Kasich, Representative Mike Henne and Senators John Eklund and Stephanie Kunzie want gun owners to believe their lies. They want you to believe their lies that we can be more safe if we just give up a little freedom. They want you to believe their lies that if we pass more laws criminals will magically obey them.

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

BREAKING- DeWine Endorses Mike Henne's Gun-Control Bill?!

(Columbus) – In an alarming break from his campaign stump speech where Gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine usually claims he supports the Second Amendment, DeWine reverted back to his US Senate Stance and stated his support for gun-control Saturday afternoon. “We’re open to anything that is reasonable,” said DeWine when pressed by Ohio Public Radio’s Andy Chow! Red ALERT. What does “reasonable” mean? This is where it goes from bad to

Gun-Control Companion Bill INTRODUCED in Ohio Senate!

Things just went from bad to worse. But first some good news. Last night, lame duck Speaker of the House Cliff Rosenberger announce that, due to an FBI corruption investigation into his tenure as Speaker, he would be stepping down effective May 1, 2018. Speaker Rosenberg was one of two major driving forces behind the machine to ram through Governor Kasich’s gun-control agenda. However, not stepping down until May 1st

Pulling Back the Curtain - How the Vitale Amendment Died on the House Floor

Tuesday morning, at the request of Ohio Gun Owners, Representative Nino Vitale (R-Urbana) attempted to run a major pro-gun amendment to HB142 that would benefit gun owners across the state. If you’ve been watching our emails or seeing our Facebook posts, you already know that in its original form, HB142 was a rock-solid bill that would’ve eliminated Ohio’s notorious “duty to notify” law that requries CHL holders to notify law-enforcement on

Bad Gun Vote Happening TODAY!!

Gun owners, The House Federalism Committee isn’t picking up what gun-owners are laying down. As you know, Ohio Gun Owners members and supporters have been pounding the pavement for Constitutional Carry, nearly passing it through the Federalism committee this spring. And all summer long, we’ve been busy mobilizing more gun owners across the state in preparation a second attempt at passing it through committee this fall. But in addition to
