"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."

-George Washington


NRA News…
Young vs. State of Hawaii
“The U.S. appellate court for America’s largest circuit has recognized that the Second Amendment protects a right to openly carry loaded firearms in public for self-defense. The ruling came Tuesday in the case of Young v. State of Hawaii.”This is a significant victory for the 2nd Amendment. The referenced court is the infamous 9th circuit, considered to be the most liberal court in the land.

George Young is a native of Hawaii. George applied for both concealed carry and open carry permits from Hawaii county. He was denied both permits and filed a federal lawsuit claiming that not allowing him the permits violated his 2nd amendment rights.
Two of the three judges agreed that George’s second amendment rights were violated. These local cases that find in favor of the second amendment are a confirmation for the entire country.

3-D Guns
The news media has been buzzing about allowing the downloading of blueprints for 3-D guns on the internet. This is not a new issue and was the topic of discussion over a decade ago concerning Glock blueprints being downloaded to the internet for 3-D manufacturing.

Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released the following statement in early August: “Many anti-gun politicians and members of the media have wrongly claimed that 3-D printing technology will allow for the production and widespread proliferation of undetectable plastic firearms.  Regardless of what a person may be able to publish on the Internet, undetectable plastic guns have been illegal for 30 years.  Federal law passed in 1988, crafted with the NRA’s support, makes it unlawful to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive an undetectable firearm.”

Ohio Firearm Legislation
The following updates are for a few of the 20 legislative bills that have been introduced in the Ohio congress. There are favorable bills, unfavorable bills, and devastating bills impacting gun ownership in Ohio. Fortunately, for gun owners/collectors, the Ohio congress has a majority of representatives/senators in both the house and senate that are pro-gun. It is very, very important that we keep it that way. Know who you are voting for relative to their opinion of the second amendment and Be Sure To Vote. The NRA rates and grades political candidates at the State and Federal level. You can visit their website to find this information and you don’t have to be an NRA member to view. Also, the Buckeye Firearms website rates and grades Ohio politicians.

SB 81…passed both the house and senate…sponsored by 13 Democrats, 58 Republicans
John Kasich (R), governor of Ohio, has refused to sign this bill until his anti-gun bill is passed.
This bill waives the concealed handgun licensing fee for current, retired, and honorably discharged members of the military and accepts their military training as proof of competency.  The Ohio congress most likely has enough votes to override his veto.
A major problem with Kasich’s bill, HB 585 & SB 260 is that due process under the law is eliminated. Anyone can be determined as unfit to own a firearm and the bureaucracy can take your firearms without any defense by the owner. In Florida, where they have a similar law, there have been hundreds of guns, and 30,000 rounds of ammunition confiscated from private citizens without “due process under the law” to the affected citizens.

HB 693…introduced 5-22-2018…sponsored by Ron Young (R)
Requires a state certificate to carry a firearm into a school safety zone.
Provides a tax credit for school employees/contractors who have the certification.
The bill provides additional safety for schools by allowing school employees to conceal carry after receiving state certified training.  This bill is currently in committee.

HB 564…introduced 3-19-2018… Sponsored by 6 Democrats, 1 Republican (Ryan Smith)
Requires a 72 hour waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a firearm.
Imposes a fine for violation.
This bill is currently in committee.

HB 599… Introduced 4-17-18…Sponsored by 5 Democrats
Restores local authority to regulate the ownership, possession, purchase, sale, transfer, transportation, storage, and keeping of firearms.  This is a terrible bill which would allow cities to have different rules and gun owners would have to be knowledgeable when commuting to a gun range or other destination. Current State law says that local authorities cannot make a gun law that exceeds State law.  This bill is currently in committee.
