This story was updated during the first 24 hours after the attack, as more information became available.
There was a shooting today at SuccessTech Academy, a Cleveland high school located across the street from an FBI office in downtown Cleveland. Early indications are that multiple people were shot and transported to area hospitals. The Associated Press (AP) is reporting the attacker, believed to be 14 year-old freshman Asa Coon, is dead.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Unfortunately, we know from past experience that Mayor
Jackson will soon be standing in front of cameras attempting to blame
"lax" gun laws for this tragedy, and renewing calls for his duplicative
and superfluous "minors with guns" law.

The Buckeye Firearms Association proudly announced many endorsements in local races around the state today.
As a part of our focus on general firearms issues, this political action committee continues our efforts to direct voters' attention to an increasing variety of local races in the state of Ohio for off-year elections. This year, there are a few contests which pique the interest of Buckeye Firearms Association, some because they are between pro-gun candidates and out-and-out liberal anti-gunners, and others because we wish to support pro-gun candidates in positions that could one day lead them to the Statehouse or Governor's mansion.
Thanks to those who helped bring us good candidates!

careful considerations are made regarding just who is going to be contracted
and employed to do the work that we need done. We all know that we want the
work done right the first time, to our satisfaction, and that it will last.
There will be many who will tell us just how good they are and how much they
really want to do the job we want. With this in mind we do our homework,
we research many businesses, research the people who work there, look at
BELLEVUE, WA – The Buckeye Firearms Association – a grassroots organization of activist gun owners in Ohio – has been recognized as the “Grassroots Organization of the Year” for 2007 by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
The award was presented by CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb during the 21st annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, held at the Drawbridge Inn and Convention Center in Ft. Mitchell, KY across the Ohio River from Cincinnati.
“We give this annual award in recognition of tireless hard work and dedication to the preservation of the individual right to keep and bear arms,” Gottlieb said, “and the Buckeye Firearms Association has certainly lived up to that standard.
“If there were a living definition of ‘grassroots,’ the Buckeye Firearms Association would definitely be the example,” he continued. “In the few short years they have been in existence, they have become a driving force in Ohio at every political level.”
