Buckeye Firearms Association is proud to announce our endorsements for the March 4th Ohio primary elections.
The impact you can make on these races cannot be overstated. Due to the limited number of people who vote in primary elections, each vote counts as a greater percentage of the total votes cast. In past years strong pro-gun candidates have lost by as few as 10 votes. Can there be any doubt that there were at least 10 pro-gun voters in those districts who stayed home because it was "only a primary"? Can there be any doubt that one hour of time by a pro-gun volunteer could have influenced the votes of enough people to change the outcome?

Following the latest multiple-victim public shooting on the Northern Illinois University campus, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh focused his national audience on the fact that these shootings keep occurring in what he calls "these wonderful, Utopian, marvelous little college campi that is a gun-free zone."
This is another case in point where you have a liberal gun-free zone, hate-free zone. You go out and say you got something, but you don't got it. Just because you say it doesn't mean you got it. This wacko planned it. He planned it and executed it, and he knew that there wouldn't be anybody else in the time he had to do his damage that had a gun to fire back at him. ...This is just classic symbolic feel-good liberalism that ends up putting people at risk because it fails to recognize that people are different. When it looks at either the demented or the sick or the truly sane who are yet criminally oriented, they look at them as no different than anybody else...
Sadly, despite overwhelming evidence which proves that "increasing gun free zones increases murders," it is clear from media coverage of the NIU Saint Valentine's Day massacre that Buckeye state college students' shroud of denial has still not been penetrated.

Ohio gun owners could get some tax relief to go along with their concealed handgun license if a recently introduced bill in the Ohio House of Representatives is passed.
HB478, sponsored by State Representative Dan Dodd (D-Hebron), would "allow a refundable tax credit against the personal income tax for concealed-carry license fees." Every dollar you pay out for your license would be reimbursed by the state at tax time.
