Ohio Statewide Preemption Up For A Possible Senate Vote On November 29!

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

 

House Bill 347, sponsored by Representative Jim Aslanides (R-94) of Coschocton, has been scheduled for a possible vote next week in the Senate.  The measure passed the House last spring by a margin of 76-19.

HB 347 would create statewide preemption ensuring that firearms laws are uniform throughout the state.  Currently, 43 states have similar laws across the country.   Passing statewide preemption will eliminate problems for all gun owners who have been unduly burdened by local ordinances such as the Columbus' so-called “assault weapons ban”.

In addition, this legislation will correct a number of problems that have surfaced during the past year for concealed carry permit holders. The most common complaint for license holders has been the “plain sight” requirement in a motor vehicle. HB347 will eliminate this requirement.

 

This critical legislation is scheduled for a possible vote next Wednesday, November 29th in the Senate Judiciary/Criminal Justice Committee at 9:00 AM in the North Hearing Room.  Please call the following committee members as soon as possible and urge him or her to support HB 347!
