Gun Control

The 2nd Amendment strictly limits any interference with gun ownership by saying: "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."  The right to bear arms is inherent in the right of self defense, defense of the family, and defense against tyranny, conferred on the individual and the community by our Creator to safeguard life, liberty, and property, as well as to help preserve the independence of the nation.

The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution; it may not properly be infringed upon or denied.  The Constitution Party of Ohio calls upon the Governor and the State Legislature to immediately rescind and declare null and void all laws at all governmental levels within the State that are contrary to this fundamental right of the people, that is unequivocally protected by the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, and established by the Constitution and other founding documents and papers as an unalienable right from our Creator. 

The Constitution Party of Ohio upholds the right and responsibility of its citizens to keep and bear arms. We oppose attempts to prohibit ownership of guns by law-abiding citizens, and stand against all laws which would require the registration of guns or ammunition.  As such, we call upon the Governor of Ohio to direct the Ohio Attorney General to declare all federal firearms legislation, beginning with Federal Firearms Act of 1968 as null and void.

We call upon the Governor, Attorney General, and the Ohio State Legislature to declare null and void all Presidential executive orders, any future executive orders, and any treaty ratification which would in any way limit the right to keep and bear arms, including the abolition of all CCW (Carry Concealed Weapons) laws within the state along with its associated registrations.  We call upon the State governmental bodies and officials to restore “Constitutional Carry” to U.S. citizens residing or otherwise existent within the State.
