Ohio's 12th District is in danger of being lost to a gun grabber. That's why it's vital that you VOTE for BFA and NRA endorsed Troy Balderson.

Here's the situation ...

When Pat Tiberi resigned his office, it left an open seat in Congress. So a special election was scheduled in Ohio for August 7, 2018.

During his time in the Ohio legislature, Balderson has amassed a perfect 12-0 voting record for gun rights and earned an "A" rating from the NRA. He has engaged in meaningful conversations and helped us when we needed it. Congressman needs leaders who are good on our issue, and we need Balderson to represent our issue in Washington D.C.

But his opponent, Danny "Ban Guns" O'Conner is threatening to flip the district.

O'Conner is rated "F" by the NRA. He's endorsed by gun-grabbing Gabrielle Giffords. He's marched with the Parkland astroturf kids who want to take your guns away. O'Conner has called for banning "assault" weapons, is in favor "red flag" laws to seize guns without due process, and wants to prevent teachers from being armed in schools to protect kids.

If O'Conner wins the 12th District, we will have another anti-gun voice selling out Ohio's gun owners in the U.S. House. We can't let that happen!

Because Ohio is a swing state, and the animosity in politics today, magnified by the passionate feelings people have toward President Trump, the nation is watching this race. The party who wins will be able to fundraise and help other candidates this fall. While it seems silly to put a lot of effort into a race that will be redone in three months, this race will likely affect many other races, and possibly the balance of power and agenda for the rest of President Trump’s presidency.

It is critical that members of Ohio’s 12th Congressional district get out to the polls on August 7 and vote for Troy Balderson. Special elections have low voter turnout, which our enemies are using to help them score a critical victory in their quest to take congress and our guns. Don’t let them win.


If you live in the 12th District, get out and VOTE on August 7 for Troy Balderson! We need every gun owner in the 12th District to VOTE and keep the district pro-gun.
