Buckeye Firearms Assoc. Leaders evaluate policy for Strickland transition
The Xenia Gazette recently published a story noting that Governor-Elect Ted Strickland is using the remaining time in 2006 preparing to take office in January, and that a Greene County local (and Buckeye Firearms Association region Leader) is contributing to the transition.
From the story:
- Strickland-Fisher transition teams have been set up to evaluate current policy in 14 areas from education to health and human services, ethics and government efficiency.
...Jamestown resident and outdoorsman Larry Moore was selected as an advisor to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources transition team. Moore represented the political action group Buckeye Firearms Association. The advisors were interviewed Wednesday and Thursday of last week.
"I was honored to be asked to provide input to Governor-elect Strickland's ODNR transition team," Moore said. "...I applaud their team for taking the initiative to seek input from a wide range of organizations and individuals. That is what government for the people and involvement of 'we the people' means."

Again, from the Xenia Gazette:
- Moore emphasized the consequences funding cuts have had on Ohio's natural resources. "We have a division of parks that is nearly broke. That is an award-winning division of parks and we cannot let that continue to be the situation," he said.
Advisors also raised issues such as firearms reform and management of state forests and discussed concerns including the environmental impact of mega-dairies and the increased use of bio-fuel technology, Moore said.
Buckeye Firearms Region Leader John Salyers was also a part of this meeting.
We look forward to many future opportunities to work with the Governor's office to defend and advance the rights of Ohio citizens to own and use firearms for all legal activities, including self-defense, hunting, competition, and recreation.
