BFA endorsee circulating letter requesting co-sponsors for "Parking Lot Firearm Legislation"
State Representative Joe Uecker (R-66), a multiple-time past and present endorsee of Buckeye Firearms Association, is circulating a letter inviting colleagues to sign on as co-sponsors to a bill that would seek to "permit a concealed carry licensee who is an employee of a private employer to store the employee's handgun in a locked motor vehicle while parked on premises owned or leased by the employer."
"The parking lot legislation is aimed towards enabling people to protect themselves on the commute to and from work. Currently 13 other states have enacted Parking Lot Legislation including Kentucky and Indiana."
The letter gives an August 20 deadline for co-sponsors to sign on.
The effort to restore the right to bear arms for self defense to Ohio workers is bound to be met with excitement by gun owners across the Buckeye State. Unfortunately, given that the General Assembly is expected to be in recess until after the elections in November, the amount of time left in the 2010 legislative session can be measured in days, rather than weeks or months.
When contacting your state representative about this proposed legislation, please also remind them that pro-gun voters are expecting them to act on two pro-gun bills that have already passed by super majorities in the Senate - SB239 (Restaurant & Car Carry Rules Fix) and SB247 (Restoration of Rights).
When is it ok to be against private property rights?
