Buckeye Firearms Association Mourns Loss of Rick Jones

Ohio lost a great man on January 4, 2022. Rick Jones, Life NRA member and lifelong gun owner and sportsman, worked for decades to advance Second Amendment rights.

The Columbus Dispatch Publishes BFA's Rebuttal on Constitutional Carry

She swims like a fish, will be scuba certified in a year or 2, has helped me clean deer and ducks...

Since leading anti-gun researchers acknowledged no connection between the 2020 surge in firearms sales and violence, unscrupulous anti-gun advocates must cite underwhelming statistics as meaningful evidence. That’s what The Trace did, in an article written in collaboration with FiveThirtyEight. We’d expect a more sophisticated analysis from FiveThirtyEight, but this is what Nate Silver’s outfit...
