Thanks to an outcry of opposition from NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, your NRA-ILA was informed that the proposed firearm registration ordinance by the Columbus City Council has been amended and excludes firearms, firearms accessories and ammunition. You can view a copy of the updated proposal here.
As previously reported, the proposed registration ordinance would have required “secondhand dealers” to register all firearms with Leads Online, a third party property registration service provider. The updated version of this proposed ordinance, which was not made available to the public until this morning, eliminates any registration of firearms. It was your support and action that enabled this change to happen, further protecting your Second Amendment rights.
Once again, thank you for voicing your opinions to Mayor Brown, City Council members and Police Chief Maddix.
