Gun Week Magazine - HB347 to be out of committee this year

Aslanides told Gun Week that his intent is to have "a single, common law that everyone in Ohio can live with, so that traveling from city to city doesn't catch gunowners" in conflict with some local ordinance.

Almost immediately, the Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA) endorsed the legislation, filed as House Bill 347 (HB-347). Aslanides already has 47 co-sponsors out of a 99-member House of Representatives, and he insisted that other lawmakers will support the measure. He hopes to have it out of committee by the year's end.

BFA's Jim Irvine told Gun Week that he expects bitter opposition from Ohio anti-gunners, who contended that the current concealed carry law would lead to bloody shootouts in the streets and taverns. None of their dire predictions has come true, he noted.

He said there are tenets of the bill "that should make everybody happy."
