The stakes couldn’t be higher for Second Amendment supporters here in Ohio in 2018.
After the recent killing spree in Las Vegas, gun-grabbers believe the political winds will be blowing their way in 2018.
BILLIONAIRE gun-grabbers like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros are ready to pour in MILLIONS of dollars to launch their takeover of Ohio.
First, their goal is to KILL all the momentum you and I have built for Constitutional Carry over the past several months.
Then, in the 2018 elections, they’re hoping to seize control of our Governor’s Mansion and attempt a hostile takeover of BOTH houses of our State Legislature to RAM through their entire gun control wish list!
That’s why I’m counting on you to help FIGHT BACK.
As you’ll see, I’ve included a link for you to renew your membership in Ohio Gun Owners for 2018.
More on that below.
But first, I must be blunt. I need all hands on deck in 2018.
You see, Ohio is one of the states national anti-gun organizations have targeted as “ripe for a takeover” in 2018 to help them advance their 2020 presidential aspirations.
With the media doing all it can to drive up anti-gun hysteria after the recent horrors at the church in Texas and the concert in Las Vegas, gun-grabbers think they have 2018 in the bag.
If they succeed in crippling our legislative pro-gun majorities, all bets could be off. With total control of our Government in Columbus, they’ll unleash their entire gun control agenda, including:
••• So-called “Universal Background Checks” (aka STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION).
The ONLY way government can enforce such a scheme is to keep track of all guns and gun owners in the state. And as you and I both know, registration is just the first step toward outright CONFISCATION;
••• A statewide “Assault Weapons Ban.”
They’ll target handguns, rifles and shotguns — even those used for hunting — based on certain cosmetic features;
••• The Gag Act.
Designed to muzzle organizations like Ohio Gun Owners during election years, it forces organizations to jump through expensive bureaucratic hoops just to mention a candidate’s name and record during an election year!
While the events in Texas and Las Vegas have certainly made them more emboldened, the gun-grabbers’ typical scheme relies on sneaking their handpicked candidates through hotly contested primaries and General Elections while keeping their views on “controversial” issues like gun rights mostly hidden.
Instead, the Gun Control Lobby will advise their allies to “play it close to the vest,” mouthing nothing but poll-tested talking points on the campaign trail like, “I support the Second Amendment,” while also pledging support for “common sense gun safety.”
That’s why a public, roll-call vote on Constitutional Carry is the gun-grabbers’ worst nightmare.
As you know, if passed, the Constitutional Carry Bill (HB201) would restore the right of every law-abiding Ohio citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families — WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!
That means no more expensive application fees, endless paperwork or carrying around a plastic-coated permission slip — just to exercise your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
In short, if you’re legally able to own a firearm, you’re legally able to carry it. Period.
This is the way it’s been done in Vermont, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona and Wyoming for some time.
And just in the past two years, Constitutional Carry has passed in Kansas, Maine, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, New Hampshire and neighboring West Virginia!
There’s no reason why it can’t happen here in Ohio.
And the great news is, just by fighting to force votes, we’re EXPOSING the anti-gun state legislators Michael Bloomberg and George Soros are counting on to take over our state in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre.
Once exposed, the anti-gun “wolves in sheep’s clothing” in Columbus will find there’s a major political price to be paid for voting against our gun rights.
So forcing a vote puts you and me in a win/win situation.
But with the 2018 election year rapidly approaching, Ohio Gun Owners’ legislative programs combined with our Primary and General Election Candidate Survey Programs could not be more critical.
As I explained, our legislative programs will set the anti-gun dominoes up, and then our Candidate Survey program will knock ‘em down!
With your support, I’m prepared to pull out all the stops in 2018 if I can raise the resources.
That means mail, email, social media and even hard-hitting radio and online ads to ensure Ohio’s Second Amendment supporters know the TRUTH about where their candidates stand on critical gun rights issues.
You saw this program in action in 2016 as the gun issue was the decisive factor in several key House races all over the state.
Those 2016 programs are a big reason why we’ve seen consistent progress for Constitutional Carry in 2017, including forcing House hearings. But needless to say, we still have more work to do including forcing public, roll-call votes!
Of course, none of the plans I have for 2018 are going to be cheap.
After all, you’re a critical part of Ohio Gun Owners’ winning team.
So please, when you renew your membership in Ohio Gun Owners for 2018, please consider “digging deep” and renew your membership in the amount of:
>>> $500 (Lifetime Membership) <<<
>>> $125 (Patriot Level) <<<
>>> $75 (Freedom Level) <<<
>>> $35 (Liberty Level) <<<
I know for some that a lifetime membership is probably a stretch. But we have so much on our plates in 2018.
Of course, as always, the amount you choose is up to you.
Your support will make all the difference in the critical year ahead.
Ohio Gun Owners
P.S. 2018 is going to be a critical year with battles over Constitutional Carry and gun-grabbers going all-out to seize control of our Governor’s Mansion and BOTH houses of our State Legislature.
With so much at stake, please act at once!
