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.

Ohio Gun Collectors Assoc. makes generous donation to Buckeye Firearms Foundation

By Jim Irvine

Last year Buckeye Firearms Association made a point of working with other groups where specific goals overlapped. One such relationship has been with the Ohio Gun Collectors Association (OGCA). OGCA has been tremendously supportive and Buckeye Firearms leaders were on hand to accept a $2,500 check from them at their show last November.

Buckeye Firearms Foundation has filed an Amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in the McDonald v. Chicago case. The case is intended to apply the protections of the Second Amendment right to bear arms against the States and cities.

Filing such a brief is an expensive endeavor, but the cost of not getting involved is far greater. We can both defray the cost and strengthen our hand when we work with other good groups, and OGCA is one of the best.
