One year new or renewal membership with OFCC.
This is a critical time for gun rights in Ohio, and OFCC is in the thick of the fight. In the summer of 2008, our long battle to preserve statewide preemption of local gun bans was successful. Thanks to our win in the Ohio Supreme Court in the Ohioans For Concealed Carry v. the City of Clyde case, all local gun related ordinances, registration schemes, 'assault weapons' bans, public park bans, etc. were invalidated. It was a long, grueling process, but we persevered and prevailed; and your gun rights are safer because of it. But we cannot rest on our laurels.
We've all seen on the news that concerned citizens have been stocking up on guns and ammunition out of fears of new gun rights restrictions from the incoming Barack Obama administration. Since Federal laws trump State laws, OFCC will be heavily involved in Federal issues if your Rights are threatened on a national level.
In addition, the work here at home is not done. Ohio still has some of the most restrictive laws in the country, and these need to be addressed. In particular, the ban on self defense while dining that denies your Second Amendment rights simply because you are in a restaurant that happens to serve alcohol, even when you're not consuming any alcoholic beverages.
We also need to work to expand the Castle Doctrine to return the presumption of innocence to those forced to defend their lives against violent criminal attacks when outside of their home. Stand Your Ground legislation, which has proven to be a great success in every other state where enacted, needs to come to Ohio. If you're the victim of a criminal attack and forced to defend yourself, you should not be victimized again by a court system that automatically assumes you were at fault and forces you to prove otherwise.
Our strength is in our members, and we truly cannot do it without you. Note that you can order multiple years and save us processing your renewal every year!
