2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

"I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians."
- George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

Another one we apparently won!

Back in February I posted about the proposed "hidden compartment" bill in Ohio, Senate Bill (SB) 305 that was aimed at fighting drug trafficking in the state but might have also taken out lawful CCW holders trying to safeguard their weapons.  I, and many others apparently, contacted the bills sponsor, State Senator Jim Hughes  and other government officials and asked for the bill to be modified to allow for such lawful carry and concealment of our firearms.

Somebody was listening...

Buckeye Firearms reports that they have worked with Governor Kasich to amend the bill to protect our rights!

A compartment built into the Mercedes E550 that would have been criminal under the proposed law...I found this picture on a LE Officer site showing concealable weapons that criminals use... ironic.  To-short-shorts not included in the vehicle purchase price...

Thanks to any and all that helped contribute to this grass roots effort to remind our government that we are not going to stand by and allow our rights to be eroded...whether on purpose or by simple oversight in drafting laws (as was the case here I believe).
