COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representatives passed legislation Wednesday to protect Ohioans' 2nd amendment right.
House Bill 325, clearly states that no government official can use an emergency declaration to close firearms dealers or restrict the lawful ownership of firearms.
“It remains a top priority of mine to protect the Second Amendment rights of Ohioans and House Bill 325 is an important piece of legislation that will ensure your rights are protected,” Miller said.
This legislation makes it clear that firearm businesses are essential, making the ability for an emergency declaration to shut them down not viable. The bill also makes clear government officials cannot use an emergency declaration to prohibit, confiscate or require the registration of firearms and ammunition.
Buckeye Fire Arms Association, National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation supported this legislation
The bill now moves to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
