Immediate Action Is Needed!
This Critical Vote Is Taking Place At 1:30 p.m. Today, November 29!
House Bill 347, sponsored by Representative Jim Aslanides (R-94) of Coschocton, was released out of the Senate Judiciary/Criminal Justice Committee this morning and is coming to the Senate Floor at 1:30 p.m. 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.
Please call your Senator immediately at (614) 466-4900 and urge him or her to support HB 347!
