What Makes BFA So Effective?

Buckeye Firearms Association is Ohio's #1 grassroots organization dedicated to defending and advancing gun rights. How do we make such a big difference in Ohio?

We harness the power of thousands of members, donors, volunteers, and supporters throughout the Buckeye State to lobby for pro-gun legislation.

Ohio concealed carry law signingWe work closely with our friends in the legislature to review bills, keep an eye on anti-gun legislation, and craft laws that give citizens the freedom and liberty they deserve.

Our leaders have played a key roll in passing many pro-gun laws, including concealed carry. Here you can see Jim Irvine, BFA President, with former Governor Taft as he signs HB12 (Ohio's Concealed Handgun License legislation) into law.

We educate the public by regularly appearing on NRA News, commenting in the media, publishing thousands of articles on our website, circulating our popular weekly newsletter, handing out literature at gun shows, and more. When it's necessary, we organize or support protests such as the Open Carry Walks, which helped concealed carry become law in Ohio.

Plus, we work with national organizations, including the NRA and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. CCRKBA recognized our success by naming us "Grassroots Organization of the Year."

We volunteer our time to make Ohio a better place for you, your family, and your friends each and every day. While our work is focused on Ohio, we have frequently assisted pro-gun organizations in other states and our efforts are recognized nationwide.

Our articles are quoted by top bloggers, such as Michelle Malkin. Leading politicians actively seek the endorsement of Buckekye Firearms Association PAC. Even celebrity activists such as Ted Nugent and Rush Limbaugh have expressed support for the work we're doing.
