Amended HB450 (Armed Services 18-21 gun rights restoration) voted out of committee

Buckeye Firearms Association leaders were on hand today as the Senate's Judiciary Committee on Criminal Justice passed Rep. Bruce Goodwin's House Bill 450, legislation that would restore gun rights to members of the armed services or the Ohio National Guard who are between the ages of 18 and 21, by a 7-2 vote.

Sens. Nina Turner and Shirley Smith voted against the restoration of gun rights to members of Ohio's and our nation's armed services.

Several last minute amendments were adopted by the committee, which are being analyzed by Buckeye Firearms Association to determine how they might effect gun owners.

Today may be the final day of session in the Ohio Senate. Will HB450, which passed the House by a 90-3 margin, be given a floor vote in the Senate?
