Gavel still has not fallen on 128th General Assembly: Pro-gun bills' fate still not sealed

The Ohio House of Representatives adjourned yesterday without holding a voting session, but Speaker Armond Budish has still not declared the 128th session of the Ohio House of Representatives to be officially over.

Until and unless that happens, there is still a chance that two pro-gun bills, SB239 and SB247, could receive a vote.

Yesterday, the House adjourned "until Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 9:00 o'clock a.m."
[UPDATE: a voting session was not held on the 21st, but the House Speaker still did not close the session, and the House adjourned "until Monday, December 27, 2010 at 9:00 o'clock a.m."]
[UPDATE #2: a voting session was not held on the 27th, but the House Speaker still did not close the session, and the House adjourned "until Wednesday, December 29, 2010 at 9:00 o'clock a.m."]
[UPDATE #3: a voting session was not held on the 29th, but the House Speaker still did not close the session, and the House adjourned "until Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 9:00 o'clock a.m."]
[UPDATE #4: a voting session was not held on the 30th, but the House Speaker still did not close the session, and the House adjourned "until Friday, December 31, 2010 at 9:00 o'clock a.m."]
[UPDATE #5: a voting session was not held on the 31st, and the House adjourned for the year without acting on this important pro-gun legislation.]

Will Speaker Budish schedule a voting session, so that these important pro-gun bills, which has the support of a strong majority in the House, can receive a vote?

It is time that you, the gun owner, take charge of your gun rights and let the Ohio House know that there must be a vote on these two bills before 1/1/2011. It is also time that you, the gun owner, let every Representative know that you will consider the failure to bring these bills to a vote as an automatic disqualifier, regardless of party, in future elections. If a candidate has not voted to bring these bills to the floor, that candidate does not deserve your support.

The time for partisan finger-pointing is long past. The time for a vote is now.

Please call your State Representative and Speaker Armond Budish and politely demand a vote on these two pieces of legislation.
