Ohio: Two Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard in Committee Next Week

Friday, June 10, 2011

Please contact House and Senate committee members!

On Tuesday, June 14, the House State Government and Elections Committee will hear Senate Bill 17, concealed carry reform, at 1:00 p.m. in Room 116 of the Capitol.  Also on Tuesday, June 14, the Senate Judiciary Committee on Criminal Justice will hear House Bill 54, which would provide individuals a pathway to restore firearm rights, at 4:00 p.m. in the North Hearing Room of the Senate Building. 

Senate Bill 17, sponsored by state Senator Tim Schaffer (R-31), would eliminate the current confusing standards of carrying a firearm in a motor vehicle.  In addition, this bill would also allow permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense in a restaurant that serves alcohol, provided the individual is not consuming alcohol, thus eliminating another “victim zone” in Ohio.  SB 17 passed in the state Senate by a 25 to 7 vote on April 13.

Please contact members of the House State Government and Elections Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 17.  Contact information for this committee can be found here.

House Bill 54, sponsored 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.  HB 54 passed in the state House on May 11 by a 78 to 18 vote. 

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Criminal Justice and respectfully urge them to support HB 54.  Contact information for this committee can be found below.
