HB585

Legal Threats to Shut Down Ohio Gun Owners?!

Any day now I expect a loud knock at my door. A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations and their pals in our General Assembly — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “SEE YOU IN COURT!” Sadly, these ugly tactics are becoming commonplace across America today as anti-freedom forces routinely abuse our legal system to target those

House Leadership Advances Gun-Control Bill, Kills Vitale's Stand-Your-Ground Amendment to HB228!

I’m afraid I have bad news (again). News broke last night that HB228 is dead for the remainder of the summer session, with a chance they may call it up in the fall. As you know, HB228 is the watered-down gun bill that we were ready to FIX with an amendment by Representative Nino Vitale into a rock-solid Stand-Your-Ground bill! On top of that, State and Local Governement Committee Chairwoman Marlene Anielski’s office put out a bulletin late

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,”

Kasich's Gun-Control Bill Could BAN AR15's

If you’ve been watching the Ohio House of Representatives pick their new Speaker, you already know it has been a dazzling display of discord. Representatives Ryan Smith, Larry Householder, Andy Thompson and others have been battling it out, each side claiming foul as they all look to shore up the votes they need to grab the gavel. But while this distraction has been front and center on Ohio’s political stage,

Three ways you can OPPOSE HB585 at Thursday's hearing!

Dear Second Amendment Supporters, 9am on Thursday morning in room 114 at the Statehouse is our chance to OPPOSE and testify against Governor Kasich’s gun-grab, HB585. A direct assault on gun owners, HB585 would: ➤ Destroy due process for gun owners by creating secret, star-chamber court hearings that would allow for gun confiscation without a gun owner even being present to defend themselves. ➤ Destroy a gun owner’s 4th Amendment protections

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

Help Stop Kasich's Gun-Control in the Ohio Senate!

Fellow Ohioans, Two hundred and sixty-five days stand between now and Governor Kasich’s exit from our governor’s Mansion, but he’s hell-bent to use every one of them against gun owners. In a Lincoln room press conference yesterday at the Statehouse, Kasich signed an Executive Order (EO) to expand the amount of data flowing from Ohio into the Federal gun-owner database. photo credit: State Representative Nino Vitale Slinging sound-bytes from Bloomberg’s

Gun-Control Companion Bill INTRODUCED in Ohio Senate!

Things just went from bad to worse. But first some good news. Last night, lame duck Speaker of the House Cliff Rosenberger announce that, due to an FBI corruption investigation into his tenure as Speaker, he would be stepping down effective May 1, 2018. Speaker Rosenberg was one of two major driving forces behind the machine to ram through Governor Kasich’s gun-control agenda. However, not stepping down until May 1st
