Buckeye Firearms Association is a non-partisan, all-volunteer political action committee,dedicated to electing pro-gun candidates and improving laws for sport, hunting, and self-defense.We played a key role in making Castle Doctrine a reality in Ohio; helped make concealedcarry legal; helped eliminate the “plain sight rule” for carrying in a vehicle; supported statewide preemption to simplify local gun laws; endorsed a bill to help introduce young people to hunting;and supported passage of a law to assure that license fees for hunting, trapping, and shing are
used only for conservation and not diverted to political pet projects.
We even played a key roll in two landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases:
 D.C. v Heller 
and 
 McDonald v Chicago
.We stand up for your rights every day. Stand with us.
Sincerely,James Irvine, Chairman
