Petro at New Albany Shooting Range

By Linda Walker
Several Buckeye Firearms volunteers and leadership team were on hand at New Albany Shooting Range Wednesday evening for a political fundraiser for Governor candidate Attorney General Jim Petro and his running mate Senator Joy Padgett. Both candidates were on hand to mingle with the guest.

Mr. Petro gave a rousing speech, explaining his beliefs that self defense is a right and his support for our gun rights. He spoke extensively of concealed carry and HB347, the concealed carry fix it Bill. Mr. Petro also spoke on the subject of the legislation of Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground that was recently introduced in the House.

After speaking, he took several questions and comments from the attendees. He listened intently as the audience gave him suggestions on how we would like these bills improved.
After the event, several members of Mr. Petro's entourage proceeded to the indoor range to enjoy some after hours shooting, some for the first time ever.

Attorney General Petro again has shown us that he and Sen. Padgett are very strong supporters of our gun rights in Ohio. He has vowed to help us fix concealed carry and get Castle Doctrine passed in Ohio. Buckeye Firearms is proud to call Mr. Petro a friend to our gun rights!
