FBI: Handgun Murders Drop When States Pass Constitutional Carry

You and I have always known it was true.

More firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens equals lower violent crime rates.

It’s common sense.

A criminal is much less likely to commit a violent crime if they know they could face “early retirement” at the hands of their intended victim.

And that’s why Ohio Gun Owners is so committed to passing Constitutional Carry at the Statehouse in Columbus.

Constitutional Carry is the simple idea that law-abiding citizens shouldn’t have to beg permission to get a license to defend themselves and families.

States across the country are starting to notice that Constitutional Carry is also good for public safety, too.

In fact, Breitbart News ran an article last week citing FBI crime report figures showing that in states that abolish their concealed carry requirements, handgun murder rates have decreased!

However, gun-control groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety are working overtime to stop Constitutional Carry from passing, claiming that blood will run in the streets if your gun rights are restored.

But the FBI’s own statistics prove otherwise!

Action ALERT!

As you read this, Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill is in the House Federalism Committee.

With summer break rapidly approaching, I hope you’ll take a moment right now to contact the members of the Committee with this simple message. . .

. . . pass Constitutional Carry (H.B. 201) out of Committee and send it to the House Floor for a full vote!

Dear Member of the House Federalism Committee,

With more states every week passing Constitutional Carry, and most recently with Michigan passing it through their House chamber, the time is NOW for Ohio to jump on board.

Summer break is fast approaching, so please work quickly to schedule a vote, vote YES, and PASS H.B. 201 out of the Federalism Committee and send it to the House for a full floor vote!


Web, we need to build on the national momentum for Constitutional Carry if we’re going to see it passed here in our state.

So please make your calls and send your emails TODAY!

For Freedom,

Chris Dorr
Executive Director
Ohio Gun Owners

P.S. As Breitbart News reported last week, the FBI’s crime report confirmed what we already knew: more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens equals lower crime rates. . .

. . . in states that pass Constitutional Carry!

With the Ohio General Assembly only weeks away from going on “summer break,” you and I need to get H.B. 201 out of the Federalism Committee and sent to the House for a full vote!

That’s why I hope you’ll contact the members listed in the email above and tell them to pass H.B. 201, Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill, right away!
