Constitutional Carry

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!)

Here Are The Cosponsors For Constitutional Carry So Far:

“Have folks call ’em. That’ll get ’em to cosponsor the bill!” That’s what OGO member Matt just told me on the phone when he called our office to ask some particulars about Constitutional Carry. You see, Representatives Tom Brinkman and Ron Hood are introducing Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill, and right now it is open for cosponsors. But the deadline for cosponsorship ends tomorrow at 5:00pm sharp! I explained to Matt

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

Crank Up the Phones!

Dear Fellow Patriot, They thought the work was over when they got elected. But gun owners didn’t elect a two-third Republican “pro-gun” majority in BOTH chambers of our legislature just to go to Columbus to be empty suits! They’re supposed to FIGHT on behalf of the voters back home, the pro-gun folks like you and me who are sick and tired of watching state after state pass major pro-gun bills

Pulling Back the Curtain - How the Vitale Amendment Died on the House Floor

Tuesday morning, at the request of Ohio Gun Owners, Representative Nino Vitale (R-Urbana) attempted to run a major pro-gun amendment to HB142 that would benefit gun owners across the state. If you’ve been watching our emails or seeing our Facebook posts, you already know that in its original form, HB142 was a rock-solid bill that would’ve eliminated Ohio’s notorious “duty to notify” law that requries CHL holders to notify law-enforcement on

Pulling back the curtain on today's committee hearing

“This legislation strikes a reasonable balance and makes the penalties for not notifying an officer you are exercising your rights much more manageable for gun owners.” That’s what one “proponent” of the compromised substitute language in HB 142 said in today’s committee hearing at the Statehouse in Columbus. I nearly gagged. As you know, this afternoon was the House Federalism Committee hearing on substitute language for HB 142. HB 142,

Bad Gun Vote Happening TODAY!!

Gun owners, The House Federalism Committee isn’t picking up what gun-owners are laying down. As you know, Ohio Gun Owners members and supporters have been pounding the pavement for Constitutional Carry, nearly passing it through the Federalism committee this spring. And all summer long, we’ve been busy mobilizing more gun owners across the state in preparation a second attempt at passing it through committee this fall. But in addition to

Game on, Web

It’s game time. No, I’m not talking about the Buckeyes, who you probably know lost to the Sooners last Saturday. What I’m talking about is the legislative session and passing pro-gun bills like HB201, Representative Hood’s Constitutional Carry bill! As you may remember, gun owners came INCHES away from passing Constitutional Carry through the House Federalism Committee last summer before the politicians vacated Columbus to go on summer break. But
