(LFC Comments: This is the second article on the betrayer in chief, Governor Mike DeWine. Now he wants to take away our guns. Tell us again, how did he ever get elected?..Must have been “his turn”. First, Kasich and now DeWine…Question to the Republican Party? Is this the best you have? Do you have any patriots in your stable of politicians?)
Dear [name deleted]:
The thousands of calls and emails that Ohio Gun Owners Members and supports like you are POUNDING into our Statehouse are beating the daylights out of Mike DeWine and Jon Husted’s radical gun-control bill, Senate Bill 221!
And Mike DeWine and Jon Husted are absolutely furious about it.
Ever since DeWine and Husted slinked into their press conference following the August 4, 2019 shooting in Dayton and defibrillated their old leftist drum for gun-control, Ohio Gun Owners has been on the warpath in opposition.
Sponsored by Senator Matt Dolan (R-Chagrin Falls), SB221 creates de facto statewide gun registration and “Red Flag” gun confiscation on steroids, which they’re trying to camouflage by labeling it a “Pink-Slip Expansion.”
But with tens of thousands of Ohio Gun Owners members and supporters standing directly in opposition to the bill, Senate Republicans are becoming afraid of taking the votes to pass gun-control – especially in advance of the 2020 elections!
And [name deleted], they absolutely should be afraid.
The fact is, gun owners in Ohio are more organized and mobilized than ever before in Ohio history.
Also for the first time in Ohio history, gun owners are mobilizing as a political fighting force in targeted primary races, eager to expose and hold accountable any politician who either outright voted for gun control or who refused to fight for gun owners!
But DeWine is hell bent on passing his gun-control agenda.
You see, Mike DeWine has made a life-long career out of attacking gun rights:
➜➜ He is the only Republican US Senator ever to be endorsed by the Brady Campaign.
➜➜ He was named among the Top 10 anti-gun U.S. Senators by Human Events, because he was “consistently the only Republican to speak in favor of anti-2nd Amendment legislation on the Senate floor.”
➜➜ He joint-authored the reintroduction of the Clinton Gun Ban in 2004 with California Senator Diane Feinstein.
➜➜ He even voted to allow gun control organizations to sue firearms manufacturers!
Now facing a brutal reelection campaign in 2022, DeWine is desperate to cement his legacy of destruction of our freedoms by passing his massive gun-control bill in the remainder of 2020 – before the 2022 campaigns season gets under way.
That’s why Mike DeWine and Jon Husted have launched a brand new “dark money” gun control organization called “Standing By Ohio.”
Funded likely by the vast wealth DeWine and Husted have accumulated from their decades of “public service,” the organization is spending tens of thousands of dollars on sponsored social media posts and postal mailers, urging people to contact their senators and demand passage of their gun control bill!
But how do we know DeWine is bankrolling “Standing By Ohio?”
“Standing By Ohio Inc. was incorporated in Virginia on Aug. 21 – weeks before DeWine announced the details of his gun plan – by James Tyrrell III, a Republican lawyer based in Washington, D.C.
The group was set up as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, which can receive unlimited contributions and does not need to disclose its donors. Political activity is supposed to be limited, but the IRS has done little to enforce that, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Tyrrell also formed Protecting Ohio Inc., a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that paid for mailers supporting DeWine’s daughter, Alice, in her race for Greene County prosecutor.
Standing By Ohio’s website is hosted on the same IP address as pro-Mike DeWine dark money group Securing Ohio’s Future; Alice DeWine’s campaign page and the pro-Alice DeWine Protecting Ohio.”
The fact of the matter, [name deleted], is that Mike DeWine and Jon Husted are ramping up their efforts to go ALL-IN to pass their gun-control agenda.
And we need to fight back harder now than we ever have before!
Ohio Gun Owners is firing on all cylinders right now, working hard to defeat the Dewine/Husted gun control agenda as well as making dang sure that gun owners’ voices are THUNDERING in the coming Republican primary!
