Who’s BS’ing Now? Gonzalez Argues for Gun Confiscation but Insists She’s “Pro Second Amendment”

Gun control advocates are constantly looking for the right messenger to push an agenda that boils down to law-abiding Americans giving up their freedoms, their security, and their property without expectation of affecting the behavior of criminals. It’s a tough pitch, which is probably why it has always been difficult for its adherents to sustain any lasting intensity in the public debate. This...

Ohio General Assembly Overrides Gov. Kasich's Veto of H.B. 228 [UPDATE: VOTE TALLIES]

NOTE: The contents of this article were updated as circumstances warranted. In a historic action, the Ohio General Assembly has overridden Governor Kasich's ill-advised veto of H.B. 228. The House override was on a 67 to 22 vote. The Ohio Senate override was on a 21 to 11 vote. Even though John Kasich used all his political power and even used political gamesmanship, he could not stop the...

2018: Buckeye Firearms Association's Long List of Activities and Accomplishments

When I began thinking about writing a review of this year's activities, it didn't take long to realize that this would be a daunting task. While we try to keep supporters informed of what's going on day-to-day and month-to-month, we spend a lot more time working than tooting our own horn. But I started making notes and surprised myself when I saw just how many pages I filled up with the things we...

Cleveland Plain Dealer fails to report truth about local gun control laws

Just days before Election Day 2018, the Cleveland Plain Dealer published a series of articles exploring how Ohio's pro-gun legislators (many of whom were up for reelection and would have very little time to respond to the expose) "took away" local government's ability to establish gun control laws, and then implied that a rise in "gun deaths" was the result. The articles, written by Rich Exner ,...

Kasich veto statement on H.B. 228 rings as hollow as his word

The House and Senate passed Substitute H.B. 228 and the Act was sent to the Governor's desk. Governor John Kasich (R) vetoed the bill and issued a press release explaining his decision. The statement is as twisted as his record on firearms. He starts by stating that, "Since first being elected to the Ohio Senate in 1976, I have consistently supported Ohioans' constitutional right to bear arms and...

Another Ohio school board moves to protect its students with armed staff members

Cincinnati's FOX 19 is reporting that a Clinton County school district is the latest in the Tri-State to allow teachers and other staff members to carry guns. From the article : The Blanchester School Board voted Monday night to allow trained staff members to carry the weapons on campus. The unanimous vote was based on a public resolution, sources tell FOX19 NOW. FOX19 is working to gather more...

Cleveland Plain Dealer admits anti-gun editorial error; Has refused to correct past mistakes

On December 11, the Cleveland Plain Dealer published an editorial calling for Gov. John Kasich to veto HB 228 on the grounds that it upends "the longstanding legal requirement in every state of the union that someone claiming they shot in self-defense show by a preponderance of the evidence that they were justified in believing that." The problem? The truth is that the longstanding legal...
