Buckeye Firearms Association Offers Pro-gun Endorsements

COLUMBUS, OH - Buckeye Firearms Association PAC (BFA-PAC) has announced candidate grades and endorsements for the 2014 general election.

As a political action committee, BFA-PAC has been issuing endorsements in every election season for the past twelve years. Through a system of weighing candidate surveys, voting records (where applicable) and personal commitment to protecting the Second Amendment, candidates are graded on the traditional A, B, C, D or F scale, in addition to being considered for an endorsement. Candidates who receive an "A" grade based only on our questionnaire are noted with an "Aq" grade.

"Every year gets tougher as more candidates want our endorsement," said Jim Irvine, BFA PAC Chairman. "Concealed carry and the shooting sports are as popular as ever, and few candidates want to be labeled as 'anti-gun' or 'anti-self-defense.' Voters who value freedom can use our voter guide to help them decide which candidate best represents their views on this critical issue."

Buckeye Firearms Association PAC endorsements are focused primarily on state-level races. The PAC also endorses in some local races and may issue endorsements to candidates for federal office who have been endorsed in prior elections or have worked with Buckeye Firearms Association on Second Amendment issues. However, Buckeye Firearms Association PAC has not endorsed in any federal office elections for the 2014 general election.

We have several statewide races where all Ohio voters can choose between a strong supporter and a proven anti-gun candidate. Jon Husted (R), Dave Yost (R) and Josh Mandel (R) all present clear choices for voters who value their Second Amendment rights.

John Kasich (R) and Mike DeWine (R) have also been supporters in their first terms as Governor and Attorney General, thus earning our endorsements.

Fact Box

We have several statewide races where all Ohio voters can choose between a strong supporter and a proven anti-gun candidate. Jon Husted (R), Dave Yost (R) and Josh Mandel (R) all present clear choices for voters who value their Second Amendment rights.

The races for Ohio Supreme Court Justice are critical, and Justices Sharon Kennedy and Judi French are candidates that every gun owner should be supporting.

After decades with no progress, a "shall issue" concealed carry law, statewide preemption, a veto override, "Castle Doctrine" legislation, and many other improvements have been made because gun owner got involved. Gun owners have the power this year to protect and restore their rights to levels not enjoyed in years.

"We will be encouraging our supporters to consider donating either time, money, or both to at least one of our endorsed candidates," said Chad D. Baus, BFA PAC Vice Chairman. "When gun owners and freedom lovers respond with donations and volunteer to help our candidates, we can accomplish a lot. Voting is no longer enough - activism is needed to win in November."

Buckeye Firearms Association is dedicated to defending and advancing the right of Ohio citizens to own and use firearms for all legal activities, including self-defense, hunting, competition, and recreation.
