WInning hearts and influencing minds.
We are pleased to say the Buckeye Firearms has joined Ohio Carry and OFCC as cosponsors of the Patriots Day Rally.
Nobody eats their own like the pro gun crowd and our rights are under attack like never seen in my lifetime.
There are much more important thing to do than bicker with each other.

Let Freedom ring.
Ain't activism fun?

Good news indeed, Chuck.
Learn how Project Appleseed is supporting freedom through Marksmanship and Heritage clinics.

Samuel Adams wrote:If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

received a nice email on this from BFA.. surprised it's the first formal contact I've seen on this event besides a facebook and forum post, and I did search for more info.

Join the Patriots Day Rally at the Ohio Statehouse

You are cordially invited to a rally for Patriotism and Freedom hosted by Ohioans for Concealed Carry, Ohio Carry, and Buckeye Firearms Association on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 11 a.m. at the Ohio Statehouse, One Capitol Square in Columbus.

Hear historical information on the role private ownership of firearms played in our country's founding.

Hear immigrants talk of their experiences with freedom before coming to this country and their experiences now.

Hear young people, the future of our great country, speak about why freedom is so important to their generation.

No registration is required. Just show up. But we do ask that you help us gauge how many will attend with the following 1 question survey:

Saturday's Patriots Day Rally at the Ohio Statehouse is organized by three groups that oppose most gun regulations, including Ohio Carry, Buckeye Firearms Association and Ohioans for Concealed Carry.

Gary Witt of Ohioans For Concealed Carry says the event, which begins at 11 a.m., is not necessarily a gun rally. He says it’s meant to celebrate freedom and honor those who fought for American independence during the Revolutionary War.
