ACTION ALERT - Gun Bill Needs Your Support TODAY
Earlier, we asked you to contact your legislators about HB 48 to eliminate victim zones and THOUSANDS of you sent emails. The effect was amazing and YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD!
NOW another bill needs your IMMEDIATE support ...
SB 199 is an important bill that would allow active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces to carry a handgun without a license AND an amendment to this bill would allow employees to store a gun in their vehicle while in the parking lot at work without threat of losing their job.
Your Senator and Representative need to hear from you on this. Military members protect our country and risk their lives while deployed. And we MUST allow them to protect themselves in their everyday lives.
As amended, SB 199 also allows employees to remain armed while driving to and from work. Right now, your employer can ban guns not only inside but outside in the parking lot preventing you from exercising your right of self defense as you travel to and from work. This must end.
The Ohio Chamber of Commerce (click to email!) is strongly opposing this bill. And in addition to emails from every gun owner, we need business owners and leaders to call to explain why it is vital to allow gun owners to store firearms in their personal vehicles at work.

Thank you for your help and support!
UPDATE - The language of the amendment follows:
For any employer, to discharge without just cause, to refuse to hire, or otherwise to discriminate against a person who holds a valid concealed handgun license with respect to hire, tenure, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, or any matter directly or indirectly related to employment, because the licensee possessed a firearm within the person's private real property or within a motor vehicle not owned or controlled by the employer, regardless of whether the motor vehicle is located on the employer's real property and, if the motor vehicle is located on the employer's real property, regardless of the location of the motor vehicle on the employer's real property.
