State-based groups like ours have had many victories in 2015. Here in Ohio, we're proud that by amplifying the voices of our supporters we were able to slow down HB 48, the guns everywhere and campus carry bill. But our legislative session isn't over yet, and when the General Assembly comes back from summer break, we'll have more work to do.
