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

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 –

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

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,”

Action ALERT: Ohio Senate Committee Moves to Advance Gun-Control Bill

It’s another week that our General Assembly is meeting in Columbus, and another week Republicans are moving gun-control bills! As you know, Republican under State and Local Government Committee Chairwoman Marlene Anielski have been moving Kasich’s House gun-control bill, HB585 by Mike Henne. This week, however, it’s the Republicans in the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee that are advancing Governor Kasich’s Senate gun-control, SB288 (and other gun-control bills). Gun owners didn’t elect these “pro-gun

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
