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.

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

House Bill 86 Heads to Governor DeWine for Signing!

On Wednesday afternoon, the Ohio Senate voted House Bill 86 out of the Senate and on to Governor DeWine for signing by a vote of 23-9! House Bill 86 fixes last year’s HB228 by preventing common firearms from becoming categorized as “dangerous ordnance,” and will prevent people who own them from becoming targets for anti-gun prosecutors.

HB228 is scheduled for sponsor/proponent testimony in the Senate Oversight Committee on Monday morning at 10:00am! Your immediate action is needed to amend it into a SOLID Stand-Your-Ground law! As currently written, House Bill 228 does a few good things like removing the duty to retreat from an attacker and restoring the burden of proof to disprove a self-defense claim back to the prosecution. While good things in and of themselves, they

Senate Action ALERT: Pro-gun amendment possibility for weak "Stand-Your-Ground" bill!

As many gun owners already know, House Bill 228 is awaiting committee assignment in the Ohio Senate. As written, HB228 does a couple of good things, but it leaves so much on the table when it comes to much needed self-defense reforms in Ohio. It doesn’t provide immunity from prosecution for citizens forced to use a firearm for self-defense, it doesn’t establish a pre-trial immunity hearing so that gun owners

2018 Republican Primary: Mike DeWine BETRAYED Gun Owners

Mike DeWine. The very name evokes images of Ohio’s Benedict Arnold when it comes to gun rights – a reputation DeWine earned in Congress: ● DeWine sponsored background checks with Chuck Schumer and Joe Lieberman. ● DeWine joined Schumer and Dianne Feinstein to bring back the Clinton gun ban. ● DeWine voted to bankrupt gun manufacturers through liability lawsuits. And now anti-gun Mike DeWine is digging in his heels, REFUSING to go on
