Gun Control Fight is Raging in Columbus!

“Everything is on the table.”

That’s what Governor DeWine told Ohioans over the weekend when asked what gun control laws he wants to see passed in reaction to the Dayton, OH shooting that left nine dead and others wounded.

At his press conference yesterday morning, Governor DeWine made it clear that he’s launching a full scale attack on our gun rights — and it’s going to happen fast!

Please immediately sign the petition that I have prepared for you, insisting that your state legislators reject the gun control agenda that is coming at us like a freight train here in Ohio!

More on that below.

The radical gun control crowd in Washington, D.C. and in Columbus didn’t even wait for the blood to dry in Dayton before they started demanding gun control.

You see, this isn’t about stopping mass shootings for them.

They view these shootings as an opportunity to ram their entire gun-control agenda into law, hoping that gun owners are too demoralized to fight back.

Never mind the fact that the shooter in Dayton bought all of his firearms legally, showing the futility of ‘universal background checks.’

Never mind the fact that over 92% of all mass shootings take place in so-called ‘Gun Free Zones,’ where you and I can’t fight back because of insane state and federal laws.

And never mind the fact that no gun control law will ever stop a committed criminal from carrying out a crime, as criminals can simply use other weapons — like Abdul Artan did when he stabbed 13 people on the Ohio State campus in November of 2016!

But none of this matters to Governor DeWine, who has made it clear that “everything is on the table.”

After attending the Governors press conference, it’s clear that there are three primary threats that we are facing when the legislature reconvenes on September 17.

>>>  First, is the same ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation that former
Governor Kasich tried so hard to pass in 2018

This legislation would obliterate the due-process rights of every Ohioan by allowing your gun rights to be suspended and your firearms confiscated without ever being convicted of a crime, possibly at secret ‘ex-parte’ court proceedings that you would never know about!


These complaints could be filed by virtually anyone: a bitter ex-spouse, a jealous former girlfriend, a coworker who is mad he wasn’t chosen for the promotion you received, a politically driven prosecutor, the list is endless.   


And remember, you would lose your gun rights before you’ve been arrested, indicted, or convicted of anything!

>>>   Second, is the same ‘Universal Background Check’ bill that is
being pushed by Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein in D.C.,
and Senator Cecil Thomas here in Ohio

This is one of the top legislative goals for gun grabbers across the nation, because far from being used to stop crime, this bill would create a statewide database of every gun owner in Ohio!


That’s because under a ‘Universal Background Check’ law, every single transfer of every single firearm would have to be run through a NICS check, putting that gun and gunowner’s information into a government system.


If you gifted a firearm to your best lifelong friend, for example, without first receiving government permission, you would be facing felony charges!

>>>  A ban on certain accessories like magazines that hold more
        than ten rounds of ammunition.

Citing the fact that the shooter in Dayton used a magazine that held over ten rounds, Governor DeWine and his pals like Rep. Casey Weinstein are hoping to ram a magazine ban into law.


This ban would make you a FELON for owning the standard magazine that comes with almost every pistol and AR-15 sold today!


What’s more, by limiting how much ammunition the good guys can carry, Governor DeWine would be making it that much easier for a madman to wrack up a body count, as no criminal will be surrendering his magazines!  

After reading this list, I’m sure you will agree that none of these bills will do anything to stop crime, as criminals will simply ignore every single one of these provisions.

If you agree, please take a moment sign the petition that I have prepared for you — telling your lawmakers to oppose Gov. DeWine’s entire gun control agenda

You see, far from stopping crime, these new laws will be used to demonize and harass law-abiding gun owners!

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of always being blamed for the actions of violent criminals by the media.

I’m sick and tired of the left’s attempts to try to make me feel responsible because of what some criminal did.

And I’m sick and tired of Governor DeWine and Lt. Governor Husted trying to pretend to be pro-gun, only to stab gun owners in the back by supporting radical gun control!

But just because Governor DeWine wants to punish law-abiding gun owners because of the actions of a criminal, doesn’t mean that it’s going to pass through the legislature without a fight.

That’s why it’s so important that you sign your petition telling your lawmakers that if they even think about supporting gun control, they will pay a price in next year’s primary and general elections


The Ohio Gun Owners team has been working around the clock since this shooting, getting ready for what promises to be a nasty fight in Columbus when the legislature reconvenes.

With your help, we are preparing to mobilize as many gun owners as possible before floor votes can be held, by:

  1. Cranking up the pressure on state lawmakers with targeted social media — going district by district — making sure that every gun owner knows to contact their lawmakers!


  1. Deploying an additional 50,000 pieces of direct mail with built in petitions so that gun owners can take action, reminding their legislators that they are watching their votes very closely.


  1. Rapidly expanding our email program to provide up to the moment updates as this fight and the legislation we are up against come into focus. Our pre-written emails to lawmakers are feared by many lawmakers, but we hope to take it to a whole new level.


  1. Unleashing a round of radio and TV ads the day before the vote, if we can afford it, to inundate Columbus with calls from angry gun owners! 

These steps are in addition to the lobbying work that Ohio Gun Owners is doing in the Capitol, the countless media interviews that we are granting, and the meetings we are having with House leadership -– all to make sure that every lawmaker knows that they will pay a price for supporting gun control!

It’s a full court press; it needs to be, as we are under assault from Republicans, Democrats, and the media.

But this program won’t even get off the ground if I can’t write the check to pay for it all.

Simply put, fundraising in the summer is not easy for non-profit organizations like Ohio Gun Owners, as people are busy with vacations and grill outs and family activities.

I need your help to run this program, and I need it as soon as possible.

Some of you are able to make major investments in this fight and can afford to contribute $1,000 or even $2,500. If that describes you, I hope you’ll be as generous as you can.

But of course, I know that not everyone can do that.

But I hope you know that any gift — from $500, $100, $50 or even just $25 — will be very helpful as we gear up for this fight.

I don’t know what you can afford, I only hope that whatever that amount is, you can rush it to me right away (along with your signed petition) so that I can get ready for this fight!

The media and Governor DeWine are counting on gun owners to sit quietly in the shadows, hoping that we are too ashamed to stand tall and fight for our gun rights.

But they’ve got another thing coming!

This country was built on a love of freedom and that love was secured by firearms in the hands of everyday patriots who were willing to fight for their freedom — a fight that continues to this day.

I’m proud to be a gun owner and I’m damn proud to stand alongside of thousands of other gun owners in this wonderful state as we fight to defend our heritage of freedom!

If you agree with me, then please take action immediately!

For Freedom,

Chris Dorr
Executive Director
Ohio Gun Owners

P.S. In the wake of the Dayton shootings, Governor DeWine is preparing a massive attack on the Second Amendment saying that ‘Everything is on the table.’

This fight will certainly include a push for ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ and a universal gun registry — and it’s going to happen fast!

Please sign the petition that we’ve prepared for you, insisting that your state lawmakers block this legislation!
