Committee Action Expected Today On Ohio Pro-Gun Measures

posted on December 6, 2016

The Ohio legislative session is winding down, and two important pro-gun bills are scheduled to be voted on in committee today.

Sponsored by state Sen. Joe Uecker, SB 199, under consideration in the House State Government Committee, would exempt active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed-carry permit license requirements. In addition, an amendment to SB 199 has been filed to allow an employee to store a firearm in his or her locked vehicle without fear of employer retribution.  

Additionally, the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee is scheduled to hear Sub. House Bill 48.  Sponsored by Rep. Ron Maag, Sub. HB 48 would enhance law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense by expanding the list of places where citizens can legally carry concealed. The goal of the measure is to close current loopholes in the concealed-carry regulations and ensure that law-abiding citizens are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
