DUNKIRK, Ohio (WTVR) — Four members and supporters of a high-profile Richmond-area firearms rights group were killed in an early morning crash Friday near Dunkirk, Ohio.
Among those who died when their car collided with a tractor-trailer was Jason Spitzer III, the founder of The Right To Bear Arms RVA, a grass-roots group of Second Amendment supporters who are known for openly carrying their rifles and other firearms in neighborhoods and shopping districts. Stephen Kim and Jimmy Higgins were also killed in the crash, according to the Kenton Times. The Hardin County Sheriff’s office has not released the identity of the fourth crash victim.
The crash occurred shortly after 7 a.m. on U.S. Route 68. Preliminary reports from the sheriff’s office indicate the northbound car carrying the Virginians collided with the southbound truck. One of the car’s occupants was taken to a Lima hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The rest died at the scene. The trucker was not seriously injured.
Members of The Right To Bears Arms RVA told us the four were on their way to Detroit, Michigan, to march through the city with their firearms with a brother group called the Hell’s Saints.
Because Spitzer’s car was carrying a number of rifles, federal authorities got involved after the crash to find out what they were all about.
