Sen. Padgett introduces Senate version of House firearms legislation as SB252

Buckeye Firearms Association is pleased to announce that Senator Joy Padgett, a 2004 Buckeye Firearms Association endorsee, has introduced a companion bill to Rep. Jim Aslanides' comprehensive firearms law reform legislation.

Senate Bill 252, which mirrors HB347 to the letter, already has 19 co-sponsors.

The practice of introducing concurrent legislation has often been done in past sessions, and can be used as a vehicle to move legislation through the General Assembly quicker by having hearings in both chambers running concurrently.
