Representatives Hood and Brinkman introduce HB 178 (Constitutional Carry, Concealed Weapons License & Remove Duty to Notify)

Editor's Note: This article has been updated to reference HB 178. A previous version of the bill (HB 174) was introduced with language that is no longer necessary, thanks to passage of HB 86. Representatives Ron Hood (R-78) and Tom Brinkman (R-27) have introduced House Bill 178, a bill which seeks to have Ohio join the growing number of states which allow "constitutional" carry, or lawful carry...

April Fools: Gun Controllers Use Fuzzy Math to Push an Agenda That Doesn’t Add Up

There are a lot of things Second Amendment supporters and gun control advocates disagree on, including history, constitutional interpretation, the frequency of armed self-defense, and the role of human agency in violent crime. But one thing everybody should have a common understanding of is numbers and mathematics. Unfortunately, recent events show that even when it comes to numerals and counting...

Who Are the Real Extremists?

NRA is often vilified by the gun-ban community and its supporters in the mainstream, legacy media as an “extremist” organization because of its steadfast defense of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

In Oregon, we see just how extreme the...

Another Study Blames Guns, Excludes Reality

A study published in Preventative Medicine by Yu Lu and Jeff R. Temple concludes that “the majority of mental health symptoms examined were not related to gun violence.

Thursday February 14 marked the one year anniversary of the terrible crimes at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. It was a somber occasion, but some media outlets couldn’t contain their glee this week that last year’s horror might finally advance the anti-gun agenda. A CNN headlined heralded “A new era on guns.” “After Parkland, everything is different,” Salon gushed. But a new...

HB 228: What the New Ohio Gun Laws Mean to You

House Bill 228 takes effect on March 28, 2019. Here are the changes and how they may affect you. The biggest change is easily the “burden shift.” For decades, Ohio has been the only state which required the victim of a deadly force encounter to prove self-defense if charged.

Blast from the Past: Proof Found That Brady Campaign Still Exists!

Nostalgia gripped gun owners [recently] as longtime foe the Brady Campaign managed to garner a few measly headlines in the media landscape they once commanded so ably.

Why do high school students think our rights come from the government? In the wake of last year’s Valentine’s Day massacre inside Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School , mainstream media repeatedly trotted out a small group of carefully selected Douglas students who served as the expert voices of America’s youth, demanding that something be done about gun violence – specifically “calling...
