Representative Hood Prepares Correction Amendment for HB178 - Your Action NEEDED!

The Second Amendment was written as a prohibition on government, NOT on law abiding gun owners like you. Believe it or not, there ARE some states in America where the legislatures take that seriously! That’s why Republican legislative leadership in our neighboring states of Kentucky and West Virginia went to bat for gun owners and delivered the big wins of Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground for their gun owners. In all,

Republican Kyle Koehler derails Constitutional Carry

ACTION ITEM BELOW! Please scroll down and take action once you have read this article! You’ve sent thousands of emails. You made hundreds of phone calls. You demanded NO votes on weakening amendments. Above all, you told them to vote YES on HB178, the Ohio Constitutional Carry Act. And because of all of your hard work we are getting very close to moving Constitutional Carry out of the House Federalism

Action ALERT: Tell House Leadership "NO Amendments on HB178!"

The Ohio Prosecuting Attorney’s Association (OPAA) is trying to GUT the Ohio Constitutional Carry bill, and we need your help to stop them! If “OPAA” makes alarm bells go off in your head, you’re thinking of the right group. Spearheaded by their anti-gun “leadership” from Franklin, Cuyahoga and Hamilton counties, OPAA is infamous in the Ohio gun rights community for testifying against virtually every single pro-gun bill to come before the

Action ALERT: Tell your Representative to Support Constitutional Carry

With THREE positive hearings already completed for Constitutional Carry (HB178), it is time for grassroots gun owners like you and me from all across Ohio to start directly lobbying our State Representatives to vote YES on Constitutional Carry! Just like we bombarded our Statehouse with calls, emails and social media messages during the battle to pass HB86 in order to clean up the debacle from last year’s HB228, now we

Mike DeWine Signs HB86 Into Law!

This afternoon, Governor Mike DeWine signed House Bill 86 into law in his ceremonial office at the Ohio Statehouse! His signature comes as the culmination of the hard work of the thousands of gun owners like you across Ohio who took action and contacted your state representative, state senator and the Governor’s office! With the signing of House Bill 86, firearms like the Mossberg Shockwave, the Remington Tac-13 V3 and the

House Bill 86 Heads to Governor DeWine for Signing!

On Wednesday afternoon, the Ohio Senate voted House Bill 86 out of the Senate and on to Governor DeWine for signing by a vote of 23-9! House Bill 86 fixes last year’s HB228 by preventing common firearms from becoming categorized as “dangerous ordnance,” and will prevent people who own them from becoming targets for anti-gun prosecutors. Clearing this final legislative hurdle (but it still has to pass the governor’s signature pen, yet!)

Action ALERT: Possible Final Vote TODAY on HB86!

I’ve got some great news! Yesterday afternoon, HB86 was voted out of the Senate Government Oversight Committee and referred to the Senate Rules Committee! The Senate Rules Committee meets this morning at 11:00am, and here’s the rub: If we light up their phone lines and email inboxes all morning, there’s a chance that HB86 might get voted out of the Senate today, as there is Senate floor session scheduled for 1:30pm! That’s

Action ALERT: Senate FIX to HB228 Introduced!

Your phone calls, emails and Tweets demanding a fix to stop HB228 from making felons out of law-abiding gun owners on March 28th are working! Only moments ago, Senator Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) introduced Senate Bill 53 which would FIX HB228 and prevent its disastrous enactment. As you know, due to a drafting error in last year’s HB228 that was perpetuated by the incompetence of the bill sponsors and managers, unless a fix is
