Beck Announces House’s Approval to Amend Gun Ownership Laws
COLUMBUS—State Representative Peter Beck (R-Mason) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed legislation that allows for restoration of gun ownership rights under certain conditions, which would bring Ohio into compliance with a recent Supreme Court/BATFE ruling that states that to restore gun ownership rights for someone under firearm disability, there must be a complete restoration.
House Bill 54 expands the categories of those who may apply for relief from a disability against acquiring, having, carrying or using any firearm so that any person who is prohibited from acquiring, having, carrying or using firearms may apply for relief.
“I am pleased to see the passage of House Bill 54 from the Ohio House of Representatives as it is important to bring Ohio into compliance with the Supreme Court rulings,” stated Rep. Beck. “This bill will restore a person’s civil firearm rights to the extent that the uniform federal ban on possessing any firearms at all does not apply to that person.”
House Bill 54 was introduced in January 2011 and will now move to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
