Gun control bills to receive first hearings in Senate committee

Senator William Coley (R-4), who chairs the Government Oversight and Reform Committee, has announced that sponsor testimony will be heard on a host of gun control bills that have been introduced by anti-Second Amendment members in the Ohio Senate.

The hearings will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 3:15 p.m. in the South Hearing Room.

Members of the Ohio Senate have already been made aware that Buckeye Firearms Association OPPOSES each of these bills.
