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.

Vote Likely This Week on Constitutional Carry!

I’ve got some great news, but I also have some alarming news, so I hope you’ll read this email and take quick action! Good News The great news is that Constitutional Carry is scheduled for a vote in the House Federalism Committee this coming week, possibly on Wednesday. Before a vote happens, however, the Federalism Committee will be holding an “interested party testimony” hearing, and that is scheduled for Wednesday

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

DeWine Launches Bid to Pass Kasich's Red Flag Gun-Control Bill!

That didn’t take long. Last week, barely 100 days into his first term as Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine announced his intentions to RAM Red Flag Gun Confisaction into law. And just as if John Kasich had never left the Governor’s Mansion, it’s all out war at the Statehouse once again against our gun rights. This is bad news. As you know, Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders destroy due-process rights

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

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

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

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: Full-Blown Stand Your Ground Law a Possibility!

Ohio gun owners, I got back moments ago from the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus from this morning’s Senate Oversight Committee third hearing on Sub-HB228. This article is time sensitive and extremely important, and we’re asking to read it quickly and immediately take a few minutes to make TWO quick phone calls. More on that in a moment. But first, this morning’s committee hearing on Sub-HB228 went well. I offered testimony
