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

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

ACTION ALERT: Ohio Supreme Court Proposes Rule Change to Destroy Second Amendment

This is an Ohio Gun Owners ACTION ALERT for the entire state of Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court is proposing a judicial rules change that would fundamentally alter the Second Amendment by stripping the legislative branch of its power to protect due process and instead instituting judicial gun-confiscation by decree. The public comment period ends Friday, which means gun owners like you and me from across Ohio need to THUNDER our opposition –

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. And they disguise those lies with the blatant lie that Ohio needs to pass

Can the Chaos in Columbus Help Our Gun Rights?

It’s chaos in Columbus. With the biggest showdown over gun control Ohio has seen in years just around the corner, BILLIONAIRE gun-grabber Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group “Moms Demand Action” are rallying in support of Governor Kasich’s Republican Omnibus Gun Control bill (H.B. 585/S.B. 288). Meanwhile, Republican House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger has been forced out due to an FBI corruption investigation. And while GOP State Representative Ryan Smith just secured the battle for “interim speaker,”

YUGE Pro-Gun Bill Opportunity - Take ACTION!

Gun owners in the Buckeye State have been getting our teeth kicked in lately here in Ohio. With another hearing on Thursday regarding Governor Kasich’s gun-control bill (HB585), however, we’ve got some teeth kicking of our own to keep doing to stop their attacks on our gun rights. But right now I’m asking you to take a moment to contact the members of the House Federalism Committee before tomorrow’s hearing —

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

2018 Republican Primary: Mike DeWine BETRAYED Gun Owners

Mike DeWine. The very name evokes images of Ohio’s Benedict Arnold when it comes to gun rights – a reputation DeWine earned in Congress: ● DeWine sponsored background checks with Chuck Schumer and Joe Lieberman. ● DeWine joined Schumer and Dianne Feinstein to bring back the Clinton gun ban. ● DeWine voted to bankrupt gun manufacturers through liability lawsuits. And now anti-gun Mike DeWine is digging in his heels, REFUSING to go on
