Ohio: Several Pro-Gun Bills Expect Votes Next Week

Friday, April 8, 2011

The Ohio Legislature is expected to vote on several pro-gun bills next week.  House Bill 45 and Senate Bill 17 would clarify carrying a firearm in a motor vehicle and allow a permit holder to carry a firearm in a restaurant and  House Bill 54 and Senate Bill 61 would restore the rights of firearms for certain individuals.

 

Earlier this week, HB 45 was pulled from the House State Government and Elections Committee agenda again.   The NRA expects that HB 45 could be up for a vote next week.  Please contact members of the House State Government and Elections Committee and urge them to bring this necessary right-to-carry reform bill with NO anti-gun amendments up for a hearing and a vote. Contact information for members of the House State Government and Elections Committee can be found here.

 

The House Criminal Justice Committee is also expected to vote on HB 54, the “restoration of rights” bill next week.  Please call and e-mail the members of the House Criminal Justice Committee and urge them to support HB 54.  Contact information for members of the House Criminal Justice Committee can be found here.

 

In the Senate, the companion bills to the House bills listed above are scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judiciary–Criminal Justice Committee next week.

 

SB 17, the companion bill to HB 45, would also eliminate the current confusing standards of carrying a firearm in a motor vehicle.  In addition, this proposal would also allow permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense in a restaurant that serves alcohol, provided they are not consuming alcohol, thus eliminating another “victim zone” in Ohio. 

 

SB 61, the companion bill to HB 54, would also bring Ohio in compliance with federal law to provide for the restoration of firearm rights for certain individuals.

 

Please call and e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary–Criminal Justice Committee and urge them to support SB 17 and SB 61. Contact information for the Senate Judiciary–Criminal Justice Committee can be found here.
