HB347 voted out of committee

HB347 passed out of the House Criminal Justice Committee today by a 12-3 vote. The bill now heads to the House floor where it is expected to pass quickly with strong support.

The process is far from over, as the bill will likely undergo changes in the Senate. Buckeye Firearms will continue to keep you informed on the progress of this bill, including the schedule for a vote on the House floor. We are pleased that this important legislation is finally progressing. It is important that legislators continue to receive support from constituents.

While it is always appropriate to thank your Representative for their vote, the phone calls can become overwhelming. They would far prefer a written thank you. If your Representative voted against HB347, it is important that you POLITELY express your displeasure for their vote, and why this issue is important to you.

If you do not know who your State Representative and Senator are, you can fill out our volunteer form and it will return with that information as well as a short synopsis of where they stand on our issues.
