Ohio Senate Stand Your Ground Bill Scheduled for Proponent Testimony!

The Ohio Senate Stand Your Ground bill, Senate Bill 237 by Senator Terry Johnson, has been scheduled for proponent testimony! This is a very important event, so please mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 3rd at 3:15pm in the South Hearing Room of the Ohio Senate and please plan on attending. SB237 is the mirror image of House Bill 381 by Representatives Candice Keller and Ron Hood, and if passed

Representative Hood Prepares Correction Amendment for HB178 - Your Action NEEDED!

The Second Amendment was written as a prohibition on government, NOT on law abiding gun owners like you. Believe it or not, there ARE some states in America where the legislatures take that seriously! That’s why Republican legislative leadership in our neighboring states of Kentucky and West Virginia went to bat for gun owners and delivered the big wins of Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground for their gun owners. In all,

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 House Leadership "NO Amendments on HB178!"

The Ohio Prosecuting Attorney’s Association (OPAA) is trying to GUT the Ohio Constitutional Carry bill, and we need your help to stop them! If “OPAA” makes alarm bells go off in your head, you’re thinking of the right group. Spearheaded by their anti-gun “leadership” from Franklin, Cuyahoga and Hamilton counties, OPAA is infamous in the Ohio gun rights community for testifying against virtually every single pro-gun bill to come before the

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

Here's the carry bill language!

“What does the bill actually say?” “Can you shoot me a copy of the bill?” “Excellent, but do I still have to notify an officer I’m exercising my Rights each time I see one?” These are a sample of the questions we’ve received in the last 24 hours after we announced that Constitutional Carry was finished drafting and ready for co-sponsors! That’s why I thought I’d take a moment to

12th state for Constitutional Carry?

15 states. According to Guns & Ammo Magazine, there are only 15 states in the country right now that are WORSE for gun owners than Ohio. Every few months – as more and more states reform their gun laws by passing pro-gun legislation – Ohio is getting left further and further behind. I don’t know about you, but I think this is flat-out UNACCEPTABLE. That’s why I was so happy

Renew Your Support for the 2nd Amendment in 2017!

You know what happened nationally. But with the strong results achieved by Second Amendment supporters right here in Ohio on November 8, it’s time for our State Legislature to get to work. There can be no more broken promises. No more excuses. Instead, it’s time for legislators to DELIVER with passage of Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry to restore Ohio’s place as one of the leading pro-Second Amendment states in the
