Legislative Alert - Your Action Needed

Our lawmakers are receiving thousands of letters, calls and emails demanding a wide variety of gun control measures including an outright ban, registration and confiscation of guns. Some (a few) are calling for measures directed at actual crime control which is something all OGCA members can get behind assuming the law is well-written and actually enforced. Our credo, after all, includes “...We believe when a person convicted of a crime in which a weapon is used, the punishment should be swift, certain and severe.”

Mass shootings have become more and more sensationalized and have resulted in a debate over gun violence that is widely misrepresented by the media and certain political groups. Anti-firearms extremists are doing a better job than we are in getting our message across, and the sooner we face that fact, the better. Our rights and our grandchildren’s rights are at stake! With onerous legislation on the docket and a crucial national election only 13 months away we are calling on each of our members, like-minded friends and family to contact your legislators.

If you have never written a letter to your congressman today is the day, and for your convenience we have provided a sample letter on our website. You may edit the letter according to your personal beliefs and opinions or sign it and send it as is. If you are reading this at www.ogca.com click
here to go directly to that generic letter as a Word doc.  See below for a pdf file format and links to  pre-addressed letters to some of our Ohio legislators and President Trump. (Contact us for a hard copy of the letter as needed at (330) 467-5733.)  Find your legislators using the links below.

Don’t forget your pro-freedom legislators! A natural assumption is that we don’t need to pressure those who already think like us on the Second Amendment, but that couldn’t be more wrong! They need to be able to tell the press and the anti-gun forces that the number of contacts they are receiving in favor of the Second Amendment are more than those calling for ineffective and dangerous gun control and outright bans.

Likewise, if you have never taken the time to write an intelligent, well-reasoned and respectful blog, post or letter-to-the-editor, now is the time. This is no false alarm or hype. Our lawmakers, media and general public need to hear the opinions of the 18,000 members of The Ohio Gun Collectors Association, their friends and family.
