Mike DeWine serving up ice cream and homemade pie, and you're invited!

(JAMESTOWN) Mike DeWine. Say that name amongst gun owners and you will get name recognition and a response. Mike DeWine is a long-time name in Greene County, Ohio and national politics. When he returned to Ohio he made a significant effort to engage various organizations. DeWine reached out to leading Second Amendment advocates. He also contacted Ohio groups representing gun owners and sportsmen including Buckeye Firearms Association, the Ohio Gun Collectors Association and the US Sportsmen Alliance.

He made commitments regarding support for the Second Amendment and concealed carry efforts in Ohio. Mike DeWine was elected as Ohio Attorney General. He has kept his word to the pro-gun organizations. DeWine has supported reciprocity adding Louisiana (Sept 2011), New Mexico (Dec 2011) and Kansas (March 2012). DeWine joined 21 other states and the territory of Guam signing a letter from the State Attorneys General in support of the H.R. 822 National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act. He has kept an open door policy for communications with his office. Representatives have continued to meet with sportsmen and gun groups to ensure any issues are discussed. In short, Mike DeWine has kept the letter and the spirit of his promises and commitments made during the campaign.

Gun owners have a unique opportunity to thank Mike DeWine for this support by joining him and wife Fran at their Greene County home for an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social. Their country home is a beautiful setting for an old fashioned country picnic. Fran, along with family members and many friends, bakes the homemade pies in her kitchen. The ice cream will be provided by Young's Jersey Dairy. Their ice cream is regarded as the finest in Ohio and made on the farm along the Greene and Clark County line. Other entertainment for the day includes clowns, jugglers and a pie eating contest. The entire family is welcome with a focus on good family fun in a warm country setting.

I'd like to invite you to join me, along with Buckeye Firearms Association Chairman Jim Irvine, at the DeWine residence for a great Sunday afternoon in the country. Through special arrangements with Mike DeWine for Ohio campaign committee, Buckeye Firearms Association is showing our support by encouraging gun owners to attend this fun event. We are even picking up the tab for the first 100 gun owners at the gate. This is an outstanding opportunity to enjoy fine pies, great Ohio ice cream and show support for the Second Amendment in Ohio.

Come out to the Mike and Fran DeWine Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social at the DeWine Family Home, 2587 Conley Road, Cedarville, Ohio 45314 between 1:00and 5:00 PM on Sunday, June 24. I look forward to seeing you there.
