Representative Ron Hood

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

Constitutional Carry Sponsor Testimony SCHEDULED!

The Ohio Gun Owners Constitutional Carry bill is picking up more steam by the minute – read below! After being introduced less than two weeks ago, we were afraid H.B. 201 was going to be referred to the less-friendly House State and Local Government committee. But instead, it was referred to the Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee! That is good news because nine of the thirteen members are already cosponsors.

Rep Ron Hood Delivers: Constitutional Carry INTRODUCED!

Huge news! Early this afternoon, Representative Ron Hood (R-Ashville) submitted Ohio Gun Owners’ Constitutional Carry bill for introduction. The introduction of Constitutional Carry, H.B. No. 201, represents a major opportunity for gun owners in the Buckeye State. Just a few years ago, only two states enjoyed being able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights without first begging for permission or paying taxes and fees. But gun owners have been rising

Constitutional Carry in Ohio!

I have tremendous Second Amendment news to report! State Representative Ron Hood is only a few days away from revealing the Ohio Constitutional Carry Act! The Ohio Constitutional Carry Act would make it so you would no longer have to pay the government or ask permission from government in order to carry a concealed firearm in Ohio to protect yourself or loved ones. Now, if you’d like to get a

It's ready for the governor's signature

Constitutional Carry passed through the New Hampshire legislature last week. After their governor signs it (as he said he will) into law, New Hampshire residents will no longer need permission to exercise their Second Amendment rights anymore. That’s 12 states now, nearly 25% of America, where citizens exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms WITHOUT first asking government permission. Not only that, but it’s picking up steam in states

We're in position

With the national elections only a few weeks behind us, a lot has happened nationally and here in Ohio in the fight to defend and advance the Second Amendment. And with a lot going on and with so many new gun owners joining our ranks, please read this overview of where we stand as the legislature convenes today in Columbus – and then take action! Backdrop: No legislative year at

The momentum is BUILDING!

The momentum for a massive expansion of gun rights for Ohio in 2017 is building. The shockwave from the November elections ripped through state legislatures across the country and anti-gun majorities were annihilated by gun owners furious for years of attacks against their Rights. Hillary Clinton’s flaming pantsuit tails are illuminating the possibilities as states nationwide ready for the biggest expansion of gun rights in the modern era! Right here
