Committee Chairman Tim Grendell can be expected to be a strong leader for SB184 in his committee. Sen. Grendell sports a long history of pro-gun/ pro-hunting reform votes, and voted to override a Governor Taft on House Bill 347 in December 2006. He has also expressed his frustration with those who call themselves "moderate Republicans", including the anti-gun Betty Montgomery, who quit her primary race for governor to oppose Grendell in the race for attorney general, which she then went on to lose to pro-gun Democrat Marc Dann.
In a February 2006 fund-raising letter, Grendell noted that "I have a 100% voting record for Second Amendment issues. The Gun Owners of America and the Buckeye Firearms Association, who both recently endorsed me, know that too."
