2010 Buckeye Firearms Foundation SW "Gun Skills Challenge" Re-Cap

by Joe Eaton


On September 25 Buckeye Firearms Foundation hosted another of our regional fundraising shoots known as the "Gun Skills Challenge" at the the Izaak Walton Conservation League Tallawanda Chapter in Oxford, Ohio.

Almost 50 donors and volunteers were on hand for an entire day of shooting and networking with other supporters from Ohio. The majority of attendees had never done more then shoot at square targets on a square range, but thanks to the coaching by Randy Bueche's IDPA Range Officers, by the end of the day everyone was comfortably shooting while moving, shooting around walls and barricades, shooting off-hand and many other important self defense skills.

Wisconsin Carry, Inc files Federal lawsuit against the City of Madison and Madison Police Chief Noble Wray

On Monday, Buckeye Firearms Association informed readers about the arrest of five members of Wisconsin Carry Inc., a state firearms rights group in Wisconsin, who were legally open carrying in their local Culvers restaurant when a dreaded "man with a gun" call was made to the local police. We announced an effort by the Buckeye Firearms Foundation to help the Wisconsin five pay for legal fees to fight the charges against them, to which BFF had already committed $2500 in matching funds.

Buckeye Firearms supporters responded immediately. By the end of the day on Tuesday, more than twice the original goal of $2500 was raised, and on Wednesday a check for $7,500 was mailed to Wisconsin Carry Inc.

That same day, Wisconsin Carry, Inc filed a Federal lawsuit against the City of Madison and Madison Police Chief Noble Wray.

UPDATE #2: Wisconsin Carry, Inc files Federal lawsuit against the City of Madison and Madison Police Chief Noble Wray

On Monday, September 20, 2010, we received the sad news that the Ft. St. Clair gun club in Eaton, Ohio is closing. While we lament the loss of another range, we were touched that one of their final acts was to give a generous donation of $2,500 to Buckeye Firearms Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to defending your firearm rights.

At almost the same time, we received word of a truly horrifying abuse of police power that occurred in Wisconsin over the weekend.

An open letter to our partners in Second Amendment victory

Dear BFA Supporters,

Recently the Supreme Court of the United States, in McDonald v Chicago, ruled that the Second Amendment applies to the states and cities.

For the first time, our highest court has "incorporated" the Second Amendment through the 14th Amendment. No matter what anyone may tell you, understand that this was a HUGE win for gun owners, and those who believe in the rule of law, our Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision: Second Amendment applies to states and cities

Buckeye Firearms Association is thrilled that the United States Supreme Court has ruled to strike down the ban on private ownership of firearms in Chicago. Today, in a 5 to 4 decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment applies to states and cities. The decision is a result of a case brought by Otis McDonald (and others) against the city of Chicago. Leaving no room for doubt, the court made clear that the Second Amendment applies to Mayor Daley and Chicago.
