TOP 12 ASSAULTS ON GUN OWNERS AND SPORTSMEN BY CONGRESSMAN KASICH
ASSAULTS #1, 2, 3, 4 ? Voted For Clinton/Schumer Gun Ban Four Times and Given ?F? by the NRA In 1994, Congressman Kasich voted for Congressman Chuck Schumer‟s Gun Ban bill, which became the Clinton Gun Ban. [HR 4296, House Vote 156, 5/5/1994] As Congressman Kasich‟s spokesman said on May 6, 1994, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, ?[Kasich's] convinced that banning these guns will not infringe the rights of legitimate hunters and sportsmen in Ohio.?
Congressman Kasich was Key Vote in Passing the Clinton/Schumer Gun Ban ? If Congressman Kasich had voted against the Clinton/Schumer Gun Ban, it would not have had enough votes to pass the House. ?The measure, passed 216-214, represents a dramatic victory for the White House and gun control proponents and a defeat for the National Rifle Association, which had lobbied against the bill.? [Columbus Dispatch, 5/6/94]
In 1994, Congressman Schumer‟s Gun Ban bill was rolled into Clinton‟s Crime Bill. Instead of supporting gun rights and the 2nd Amendment, Congressman Kasich voted three times in favor of Clinton‟s Omnibus Crime Bill that banned numerous firearms, including the AR-15 and M1A that are used in the National Trophy Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio.

According to a letter to the Columbus Dispatch on October 11, 1994, ?Kasich said on WTVN (610AM) that an overwhelming number of calls to his office were against a ban on assault weapons, but he ignored them because he knew that the ?gun lobby‟ pays people to call.? On the CNN show Inside Politics Extra on May 17, 1996, he said ?it was just a common sense deal.?
ASSAULT #5 ? Voted Against Repealing the Clinton Gun Ban In 1996, Congressman Kasich had the audacity to vote against the repeal of the Clinton Gun Ban.

Despite Congressman Kasich‟s opposition, the bill passed 239-173. [HR 125, House Vote 92, 3/22/1996]
ASSAULT #6 ? Voted for a Ban on Deer Hunting In 1992, Congressman Kasich voted against the amendment by Congressman and NRA Board Member Bill Brewster to allow deer hunting to continue at the Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge.

Despite Congressman Kasich‟s opposition, the amendment was adopted 228-198. [HR 666, House Vote 101, 2/8/1995]
ASSAULT #11 ? Voted for D.C. Gun Ban In 1999, Congressman Kasich voted against Congressman Virgil Goode‟s amendment to repeal the law which prohibits District of Columbia residents from possessing a firearm. [HR 2122, House Vote 240, 6/18/1999]
ASSAULT #12 ? Voted for Handgun Restrictions In 1986, Kasich voted for anti-gun Congressman Bill Hughes‟ amendment restricting the rights of handgun owners. [HR 4332, 4/1986]
