The only group missing in this event that I'm aware of is BFA, of which two things:
One: If anyone knows how to get them involved in an event like this, please, take action. They were made aware of this event and have not responded, much less offered their support.
Two: I hesitate to call them an Ohio firearm rights advocacy group these days. They don't seem to be doing anything more than raising money though raffles, running the FASTER program, and posting on social media. They've been ignoring their members for quite some time, and now their forums have been "down for maintenance" for over two weeks. They've fought *against* the interests of Ohio gun owners in the legislation they've recently supported and opposed, and have endorsed an candidate in the Republican primary for Governor who is *at best* characterized as not being pro-gun rights.
OK, I'll get off my soapbox now.
That's my take as well. Trouble is, BFA likely has the biggest "name recognition" at the Statehouse, and among the media in many parts of Ohio.When AM talk radio down here wants a "gun rights guy" on-air, it always seems to be my old pal Joe Eaton from BFA.A few of the show hosts are only aware of OFCC because I've sought them out at station events and chatted "us" up.
Hope it's a great turnout today. Wish I could be there, but a good friend of mine with no local family is in the ICU, Going to spend time tending to his house, bills, etc. this weekend.
