Oho gun rights group has put its lobbying efforts on fully auto

Working against the clock, Ohio's gun rights activists still maintain their sights on two legislative proposals.
o much so that their Ohio General Assembly supports have demanded a discharge petition; a point they recently won by a goodly bipartisan margin in the Ohio House.

The first mater deals with modifying the state's current concealed carry law and which would clarify how permitted handgun owners can carry or store their weapons while in a motor vehicle as well in restaurants and bars that serve alcohol.

Second is a measure that would restore the right of gun ownership to some former misdemeanor violators.

Backing both measures and successful Ohio House discharge petition is the Buckeye Firearms  Association.

Much of the opposition - and anger directed at gun rights groups - is coming from the media, the Association says.

Which means that firearms owners still have their work cut out for them, the Association said further.
