Post subject: Whats in the fire for 2017 Pro gun bills?
Post Posted: Mon Dec 26, 2016 8:33 pm
Anyone know what we can expect to look forward to for the next year?
I would like to see existing pro gun laws strengthened and less restrictive laws on transporting firearms in vehicles. I miss seeing gun racks in the back of trucks! Lets make it happen!

Not sure what's on the agenda yet - it probably won't matter for another two years though since the Ohio way is to wait until after the election then take several pro-gun bills and slice & dice them, mix them together and come up with something almost but not entirely unlike what they started with, vote on them in a rush at the last minute without proper review of what they are proposing, pass them, flaws and all, and submit to the governor for his signature.

BTW, gun racks are perfectly legal for long guns as long as the gun is unloaded. See ORC 2923.16 (C) (3):

Quote:
(C) No person shall knowingly transport or have a firearm in a motor vehicle, unless the person may lawfully possess that firearm under applicable law of this state or the United States, the firearm is unloaded, and the firearm is carried in one of the following ways:
...
(3) In plain sight and secured in a rack or holder made for the purpose;

They do it that way to shut us out of the discussion. They want our money and our votes, but they don't want our input and don't respect our rights.

Years ago people didn't freak out about a guy with guns in a rack but I think anymore they would be pulled over more often and if your ammo isn't in the bed or put somewhere locked up where you can't access it you could be arrested for it

I just don't like that you could be arrested for buying a new firearm and box of ammo and for people not knowing to seperate it and lock it up they could be arrested

mikesohio, as long as the ammo is loose or in a factory box, etc., there is no issue, whether or not you have a CHL. The only problem arises when you have loaded magazines and don't have a CHL, then you have to have the loaded magazines "stored in a container that provides complete and separate enclosure" - like a glove box or center console that closes with a latch of some kine (but doesn't have to lock). With a CHL, you can even have loaded magazines for your long gun anywhere in the vehicle you like.
