Last week, the Ohio State House voted 71-21 to override the Governor’s veto of House Bill 347. The bill now is headed to the State Senate for a vote as early as Tuesday, December 12.
Sponsored by Representative Jim Aslanides (R-94), 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 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. HB 347 will eliminate this requirement.
