In what has become an all too familiar story each lame duck session, it is once again necessary to ask Ohio gun owners to call their state Senators and encourage their support for a pro-gun bill that will otherwise die at the end of the legislative session on December 31, 2008.

Buckeye Firearms Association Chairman Jim Irvine is fond of saying that all politicians are not the same, despite people’s belief to the contrary.
