Second Amendment fundraising drive a success!

Not long ago Buckeye Firearms Foundation challenged our supporters to help us raise $30,000 so we could defend gun-rights at the Supreme Court.

As usual, gun owners from Ohio, from across the United States and even from around the world didn't disappoint and we are now thrilled to announce that we've achieved our goal. In fact, we exceed our goal and are still receiving donations.

Are your gun rights worth $8.97?

Dear Gun Rights Supporter,

I was speechless.

Recently, while reviewing donations, I found myself marveling at the generosity of our many Ohio supporters.

From every part of the state, people of all ages were showing their support for our work on the Second Amendment case now before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Checks for $100, checks for $500, and one massive check for $10,000 from the USCCA.

I was proud that our years of work had generated this level of trust and devotion from gun owners across Ohio.

That's when I saw it.

It was a plain white piece of paper, a printout from an online donation made just days before.

It totaled $8.97.

And it was signed, "From a citizen in the UK who has already lost his rights."

Governor Ted Strickland attends 2009 Buckeye Bash; promises to veto any anti-gun legislation

By Chad D. Baus

Attendees of the 2009 Buckeye Bash already knew they were in for a special time on Saturday, October 17, but didn't know until soon after they arrived that the evening was going to be made even more special by the appearance of Governor Ted Strickland.

We need $30,000! The 2nd Amendment is at stake!

Please read this carefully. We have never needed your help more than we need it now!

Dear Friend,

Last year, in a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court clearly proclaimed that the Second Amendment is an individual right.

Not a collective right. Not a right of the "militia." A right of each American citizen.

You might think that would have ended the debate, but it didn't. Even after this decision, local governments around the country pretended that the protection of individual Second Amendment rights applied only to the federal government, not to the states or cities.

This is one reason why cities like Cleveland and Chicago continue to infringe individual rights with draconian gun bans and unreasonable regulations aimed squarely at law-abiding citizens.

As is so often the case, the only way to fight against such unconstitutional behavior is to file a lawsuit and win.

That's why now, a little more than one year later, America's highest court has again taken up a Second Amendment case.
