Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,
I hope you already know Rep. Bob Gibbs, one of the strongest supporters of the Second Amendment in the U.S. Congress.
Gibbs, who represents the newly constituted Seventh District of Ohio, has a perfect voting record on gun rights issues, but he’s much more than just a good vote. He is a leader as well, earning one of only a handful of “A+” ratings from Gun Owners of America.
When Bob served in the State House and Senate, he was at the forefront of the concealed carry debate, pushing for the strongest legislation possible. And in his first term in Congress, Rep. Gibbs took on a federal “gun free zone” controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers.
Currently, firearms are prohibited on Corps land, even when gun possession is otherwise allowed by applicable state law. Rep. Gibbs’ bill would simply allow for the law of the states in which such land is located to govern firearms possession.
“The Recreational Lands Self-Defense Act seeks to restore Second Amendment rights to law-abiding citizens while they are legally camping, hunting, and fishing on the 11.7 million acres of Army Corps recreational property,” Gibbs said.
Nationally, the Army Corps of Engineers controls 400 lake and river projects, 90,000 campsites and 4,000 miles of trails. Rep. Gibbs’ language passed in the House, but is being held up by anti-gun Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Rep. Gibbs will continue this fight, as well as others involving your gun rights, when Congress reconvenes.

Ohio, of course, is a perennial battleground state. And you can bet that Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are doing their best to make the Seventh District a battleground as well. After all, a win here for Nancy Pelosi puts her one step closer to the Speaker’s Chair.
But Buckeye State gun owners have a clear choice in this election. Bob Gibbs is a trusted, consistent friend of your gun rights. His opponent wouldn’t even bother to return a GOA survey so you could know where she stands on the issue.
So please take a moment to visit our friend Bob Gibbs online, and whether you live in the Seventh District or not, do all you can to help Bob win this seat.
