Two Pro-Gun Bills on the Move in Ohio

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Two pro-gun bills are up for a possible vote on the House floor at any time.  House Bill 45 is an important self-defense reform that would simplify where you can carry and House Bill 54 would allow individuals a pathway to restore firearm rights.

Introduced by state Representatives Danny Bubp (R-88) and Terry Johnson (R-89), HB 45 would eliminate the current confusing standards of carrying a firearm in a motor vehicle.  In addition, the 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.

HB 54, introduced by state Representatives Ron Maag (R-35) and Jarrod Martin (R-70), would bring Ohio in compliance with federal law to provide for the restoration of firearm rights for certain individuals.

Please contact your state Representative and respectfully urge him or her to support House Bills 45 and 54.  Contact information for your state Representative can be found here.
