APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Please Thank Ohio State Legislators for Voting to Override Governor Taft's Veto!

Friday, December 15, 2006

On Thursday, December 7, the State House voted 71-21 to override Governor Bob Taft’s (R) veto of crucial statewide preemption legislation, House Bill 347.  Tuesday, December 12, the State Senate voted 21-12 to sustain the override, with three Democratic Senators voting in favor of the measure.  This was the first time in twenty-nine years that the Ohio legislature has overturned a Governor’s veto.


Championed by Representative Jim Aslanides (R-94), HB 347 will create statewide preemption ensuring that firearms laws are uniform throughout the state. Currently, 43 states have similar laws across the country. Passing statewide preemption eliminates 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.

Please take a moment to contact your State Representative at (614)-466-3357 and State Senator at (614)-466-4900 and thank them for defending your Second Amendment rights.  If they opposed the veto override, please politely remind them you will remember their vote come election time.
