***When fair weather gun groups and summer politicians fade away Ohioans For Concealed Carry (OFCC) stands our ground***
Ohio – -(Ammoland.com)- Fellow pro-gun Ohioans, It is a sad and tired tactic that when ambitious politicians see a tragedy they dip their quills into the blood of innocent victims and start writing laws that won't protect anybody but will absolutely infringe on our precious liberties.
None other than anti-gun California Senator Dianne Feinstein has already started doing just that in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy by seeking to ban “bump stocks”:
So could a new ban on various gun accessories start gaining momentum in Washington D.C.? You bet it could. Meanwhile, pro-gun legislation like “interstate reciprocity” and the “hearing protection act” sit idle. Since the NRA has also called for additional regulations on these “bump stocks” even some nominally pro-gun legislators might feel like they have cover:
But don't think that only the anti-gun forces in Washington D.C. are potential problems for us. Right here in Ohio Cecil Thomas, State Senator from Cincinnati, has proposed a similar ban:
And it isn't just Senator Thomas we have to worry about in Ohio. None other than Governor Kasich has also indicated he wants to get in on the act of banning an unpopular gun accessory.
So where does OFCC stand? I'll tell you where:
WE SAY NO KNEE-JERK BANS ON ANY GUN ACCESSORY JUST BECAUSE THE MEDIA HAS DEMONIZED IT.
We are standing strong. We want to advance the pro-gun agenda here in Ohio. We want what you want:
- Concealed handgun licensee active notification repeal
- Removing the duty to retreat
- Elimination of no guns zones
That's what OFCC is going to do. We are remaining on offense. We're not going to bend to the media narrative that says somehow we need to agree to “reasonable” restrictions just because some anti-gun elitist says so. Because after “bump stocks” you know they'll come after:
- “High capacity magazines” (a misnomer in itself)
- Collapsible stocks
- Bayonet lugs
- Accessory rails
- “Saturday night specials” (anything affordable enough for the common citizen)
- “High power rifles”
- and so on…
We're not going there. We're not even going to swerve near the exit lane that leads to gun ban neighborhood. We're staying in the express lane towards liberty land while driving the pro-gun agenda muscle car in high gear. That will anger the elitists in the anti-gun movement but we're just fine with that. How about you?
Please contact your state representative and state senator and tell them you want the pro-gun agenda to ONLY go forward:
Don't forget about the November 4 & 5 2017 class by accomplished author Andrew Branca.
