Although Republicans lost their super-majorities in both chambers of the legislature, Ohio voters had preserved a strong pro-gun majority in the House and Senate, and for the first time in recent memory, they had elected a truly pro-gun Governor in Democrat Ted Strickland. More than half of the tenure of the 127th General Assembly is now over, and gun owners have nothing to show for the blood, sweat and tears they poured into campaigns through volunteering, donations, spreading the word to friends and family, etc. The Legislature seems to think Ohio gun owners are fine with the lack of progress on our many issues. If you do not feel this way, it is time for you to let your legislators know. To help in this endeavor, Buckeye Firearms Association is beginning a campaign to assist gun owners in contacting their state representatives and senators regarding the lack of legislative progress on specific topics relating to gun ownership. Each week over the next several weeks, we will feature a new Emergency Action Item that needs to be addressed by the 127th General Assembly. Emergency Action Item, Week of January 21: Issue: The General Assembly made unloaded transportation of a handgun in Ohio illegal, and unloaded transportation of other firearms is a confusing trap for the unwary. Impact: All firearm owners and persons visiting Ohio with firearms. (Not a concealed carry issue.) For Specifics, download the official white paper here. (.pdf) BuckeyeFirearms.org's RepWrite feature allows concerned Ohioans to write their elected officials, even if they don't know who they are. Please take a moment to use our RepWrite feature to contact your State Representative and Senator. As always, feel free to modify our letter and make it your own, but remember to always keep it polite and professional. After you have contacted your state representative and senator, please help us spread the word to other gun owners. Many issues, including this one, effect ALL gun owners. We need your help in getting as many people as possible to contact their legislator if we are to get any bills passed in the remaining months of this session. » * Email this page * 55 reads User login Username: * Password: * * Create new account * Request new password FREE CCW Cards!
