Ohioans For Concealed Carry

Ohioans For Concealed Carry

Ohio --(Ammoland.com)- The Tony Gordon Memorial Award was created in honor of Ohio resident James Anthony “Tony” Gordon.

Tony gave his life at the age of 27 to protect his then 13 year-old nephew during an attempted car jacking in Dayton in August of 2003. Despite being mortally wounded, Tony was able to get his nephew safely home before succumbing to his injuries.

Rather than blame the gun the killer used for this tragedy, Tony’s family was determined to ensure future carjacking victims had an alternative to driving away and could defend themselves with a firearm if they chose. They worked to help get concealed carry reform passed in Ohio; even attending one of the many open-carry self defense walks held prior to passage of HB12.

In 2004, at the first annual Party in the Park picnic, OFCC presented Tony’s family with the Tony Gordon Memorial Award. This award is presented annually to an individual who goes above and beyond while working to further gun rights in the State of Ohio.

This award is given annually to a deserving person who has performed exceptional work to promote, support, or expand gun rights in Ohio.
