Each party has picked their candidates running in November’s elections for Ohio’s next Governor, US Senator and members of Congress, whether we like them or not.

But who conservatives, gun owners and Republicans pick to represent them at the General Assembly in Columbus for the next two and four years will be decided in the August 2nd primary elections!

And as a member, donor and supporter of Ohio Gun Owners, you already know how much our freedoms are determined by what happens in Columbus.

After all, it was OGO members like you who defeated both Governor Kasich and Governor DeWine’s Red Flag gun control laws.

And it was OGO members like you who crammed Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground into law in just the last couple of years.

The threat of federal gun-control out of Washington, D.C. is growing by the hour, however, and that makes who gun owners pick to represent them in Columbus much more important than ever!

Will the Republicans in Columbus fight back and defend our Second Amendment and way of life if they get elected? Or are they really Swamp Monster RINOs leveraging into position to betray us once they’re elected?

The fact is, if backstabbing RINO’s win, they will deliver total victory to the Left, and we will lose everything as the Democrats obliterate the 2nd Amendment by passing Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Government Gun Registration and everything else they want.   

The good news is, OGO is working overtime to make sure every gun owner in the state is activated and mobilized into a political fighting force for the August primary!

In fact, the OGO team has been working for two weeks straight now, and we’ve just put the finishing touches on the Ohio Gun Owners’ critical 2022 primary election plan.

I believe it’s absolutely crucial you review it right away.

And with time running out, I’m counting on your generous financial support to help us put this plan into action.



As you’ll see, I’ve budgeted $84,500 to put the Ohio Gun Owners’ plan of attack into action.

Subtracting funds that have already been earmarked for this

program, we still must raise $51,900 between now and July 22 to launch the full program.

I know that may sound steep; however, it’s only a fraction of what liberal Super PACS and out-of-state gun control groups and candidates are spending to advance their gun control agenda.

But time is running out — I need to hear from you as soon as possible!

Without your support, I’m afraid we could see an entire slate of anti-gun moderates take charge in Columbus next session.

And I can’t begin to explain what a DISASTER that would be.

Instead of building on our success in passing Constitutional Carry through the General Assembly and working to pass the Second Amendment Preservation Act, our backs will be against the wall.


Being led by some of the weakest politicians to ever hold office in the Ohio legislature, if even more moderates join their ranks, the legislature will undoubtedly renew their push for a wide array of gun control bills, including:

  • Red Flag Gun Confiscation. Long supported by RINO’s in Columbus, an Ohio Red Flag law would let your ex-spouse, an angry co-worker, or an anti-gun neighbor file a complaint against you in a secret (ex-parte) court hearing that you know nothing about, claiming that you are dangerous.

    If the liberal judge agrees, he’ll issue a confiscation order and the first you’ll know about it is when your front door is no-knocked at 6am in the morning – without ever being charged, tried or convicted of a crime!

  • A mandatory waiting period for all handgun salesOGO members stopped this legislation before, but support for this legislation continues to grow.

    Waiting periods are designed to target the law-abiding, because criminals ignore the law completely. Many women have been murdered while waiting for the chance to buy a handgun, by a bitter ex who ignored the law. 

  • A statewide registry of guns and gun owners through universal background checksThis legislation has been making inroads in Columbus for the last four years and would give the gun grabbers what they have always wanted – a list of every gun owner in Ohio.

    And if you dare to transfer a firearm to someone without going through a background check first, you would be facing FELONY charges — even if you gave a firearm to a member of your own family!

And truth be told, I’m afraid this would only be the start, because when the flood gates open, the Left will do everything they can to turn Ohio into California or New York.

That’s why gun owners need to STAND AND FIGHT NOW!


There are so many races all over our state where Ohio’s gun owners can make a difference, including:

  • House District 65.

    Battling against an anti-gun challenger in the new HD65 is incumbent Republican Mike Loychik. Loychik is a pro-gun champion, and the bill sponsor for Ohio Gun Owners’ HB62, the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA).

  • House District 85.

    Lilli Vitale is running against a herd of RINO’s as she campaigns to win the seat being vacated by her husband, Representative Nino Vitale.

Nino Vitale has been a bill sponsor and champion for Ohio Gun Owners since our inception, and his wife Lilli promises to make Nino look like a moderate if she is elected!

But this is just the beginning. There are a slew of races that OGO believes are ‘in play’ in August. And the outcome of these races will determine what happens to our gun rights for the next two years at a minimum.

The fact is, our country is on the ropes, and in more ways than one. The radical Left is working diligently to implement their Marxist remake of America by rioting in the streets, infiltrating our classrooms, destroying the family unit and assaulting the freedoms our country needs to survive.

It is time for us to FIGHT BACK!


We have put together a four-part plan to ensure that no candidate can hide from their records, surveys, or public statements, including:

  • Some of the most aggressive digital ads ever seen in Ohio allowing us to totally saturate key legislative districts and hammer away at the weak moderates who are trying to hide their compromised records.
  • Two rounds of hard-hitting direct mail that will give gun owners the facts that anti-gun RINOS are trying to camouflage about their voting record. And since it’s going to be mailed, Facebook can’t censor this;
  • A drastically ramped up statewide email program that will cover every race I’ve mentioned already and many more than I haven’t. These emails will give dates, bill numbers, voting histories, and everything gun owners need to hold gun-grabbers in Columbus accountable!
  • Door-to-door digital lit drops in targeted districts that will give gun owners critical information while reminding gun grabbers that there is nothing OGO won’t do to expose their records and defend our Second Amendment freedoms!

You’ve seen the plan. You’ve seen some of the races that we are focusing on. Now I have to ask you to dig deep so we can put this plan into action!

Time is running out, and we need to raise $51,000 -– fast!


That’s why I hope that you will agree to a contribution of $1,000, $500, or $250 immediately!

I know that’s a lot, but our gun rights are under attack more than ever before, even from our own side! We need to send a message that anyone who attacks our freedoms will be totally exposed at election time!

If a larger amount isn’t possible, please consider $100, $50 or at least $25!

The amount of your donation is entirely up to you, but please act fast.

It takes time to produce hard hitting videos, make digital ad buys, draft the direct mail, and put together digital lit drops — we simply must have our final budget in place by mid-July!

The good news is that if we are successful in running this program, in exposing anti-gun moderates, it will remind them that messing with the Second Amendment is a bad career move in Ohio.

OGO is chomping at the bit to launch this program. But we can’t do it without your generous support.

So please consider your most generous contribution of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford, today!

For Freedom,

Chris Dorr
Executive Director
Ohio Gun Owners

P.S. I’ve outlined our primary program in greater detail below, please review it before deciding what level of support you can send us.

But please act fast, we have to make hard decisions on the size of this program very soon!

OGO 2022 Primary Election Plan and Budget


Digital Ad Campaign in Targeted Districts

Cost: $23,660


Digital ads allow OGO to absolutely saturate a legislative district or statewide demographic with our message and do it at the cheapest online engagement possible. The videos often go viral and allow gun owners to share them with everyone they know. These ads are slated to ‘go hot’ in the last half of July and we need to run them in 7-10 districts for just over two weeks.

Mail Program in Targeted Districts

Cost: $26,195


A series of two hard-hitting survey results letters informing approximately 10,000 pro-gun grassroots patriots in statewide primary races where the candidates in their primary stand, and how their current legislator voted against their gun rights! This mail will begin hitting between July 25-29.  While more expensive per engagement than digital ads, they allow us to provide more information than a 60-second ad can contain. In these three races, it’s worth it.

Internet, Phone and Email Program

Cost: $29,575


Host all candidates’ survey responses on OGO’s website and Facebook page, and pay for statewide Internet and digital media ads urging Ohio gun owners to see where their candidates stand on Second Amendment issues. Pay for a series of eleven emails – including three deploys to a statewide pro-Second Amendment prospect list – with video updates giving gun owners all of the information we have on these races.

Ground Game

Cost: $5,070


Teams of OGO mobilizers will deliver digital flyers, drilling down by known voter history and going neighborhood by neighborhood in five districts, delivering tens of thousands of our digital voter score cards, making sure that everyone in these key races know who stabbed them in the back in the legislature and who wants to fight for the Second Amendment.
