Ohio gun owners group urges passage of two proposals

With the state legislative clock ticking down the hours until the close of this lame duck session, the Buckeye Firearms Association is pressing for the passage of two proposals.

These include a proposed measure to fix state law as it relates to a legally licensed individual carrying a concealed weapon in a restaurant or car. The other is a "restoration of rights" bill that would bring Ohio into line with federal standards for restoring rights - including gun ownership - to those who lost them, mostly due to past criminal activity and any subsequent penalty completion.

Both bills originated in the State Senate where they passed handily. Each is now before the Ohio House, the firearms association says and which urges its members to take up pen, cell phone, Facebook and Twitter to press their elected House members for passage.
