Ohio Bill Prohibits Firearm Seizure, Forced Registration & Potential Ban

Two Ohio Senators are sponsoring a bill in the Buckeye State that is preemptively striking against Washington's gun grab legislation insanity. Senator Kris Jordan introduced SB36 which would prohibit firearms seizures, registration and bans in Ohio. Senator Tim Schaffer co-sponsored the bill as it was introduced on February 12, 2013.

In addition, to the above items in the bill, it also prohibits forced gun registration and includes first degree felony charges to any law enforcement officer (state or federal) or international agent who attempts to enforce a firearm registration or firearm ban.

The summary of the bill reads:

To enact sections 5502.23 and 5502.231 of the Revised Code to prohibit any agency and its employees and agents from seizing or authorizing the seizure of any firearm from any person lawfully in possession or control of the firearm except when a law enforcement officer reasonably believes the immediate seizure of the firearm is necessary for the safety of the officer or another person or to preserve the firearm as evidence, to prohibit the establishment of a firearm registry, and to prohibit law enforcement officers and international agents from enforcing a firearms registration requirement or firearm ban.

Senator Jordan, in responding to the 1995 interview on 60 minutes with Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), said, "These law abiding Ohioans are not the ones to be scared of, rather it is the politicians who say it is their goal to disarm “Mr. and Mrs. America” that we should fear."

Republicans are expected to give strong support to the bill since they control the Ohio General Assembly and it is ultimately expected to be on Republican Governor John Kasich's desk for his signature.

Kasich recently expressed, “I’m a Second Amendment supporter and that’s not going to change. There are a range of issues at play here involving mental health, school security and a culture that at times fails to reject the glorification of violence that can desensitize us to the sanctity and majesty of life. Going forward, we need to pay close attention to what the experts conclude from this incident in order to see if there are lessons to be learned and applied here in Ohio.”

I am cautious in regards to Governor Kasich as he caved on the Obamacare and Medicaid. It makes me even more cautious of his statement above. Especially the part about "Going forward, we need to pay close attention to what the experts conclude from this incident in order to see if there are lessons to be learned and applied here in Ohio." Some might call me crazy, but the reality is that we must encourage Kasich to do the right thing and this appeal to "experts" conclusions and "lessons to be learned and applied" give me pause. With that said, I think Ohioans should contact their representatives, senators and governor and encourage them to pass this new legislation to nullify Washington's attacks.

  1. Great ideas from everyone. I suggest we all send a letter to our Reps, Senators and Governor Kasich to pass and sign this bill. Mine are in tomorrows mail. United we stand, divided we fall.

  2. Sounds like it is time for the Fed to crack down on Ohio!

  3. They are attempting to get a similar bill through in Montana, but, it has been "watered Down" so much by the demoncrats that it has little bite left in it.

    Waiting for the Tennessee legislature and sheriffs associations to take a voice their opiniions either pro or con. Take a stand or continue to be wusses.

  5. Why can't or why won't states pass laws that allow for the arrest of politicians who violate their oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Maybe if Oklahoma arrested Pelosi for failing to vette Obama we all could breath a little easier. Or toss Feinstein in jail for conspiracy to destroy the Second Amendment along with Chumpy Scmuzzer.

    If you can....leave NY(the city)and come join us in America. We still exist.

  7. I'm not sure that Gov.Kasich would sign the bill into law. He will probably become more "Rino" to get reelected! I'm beginning to think he is not quite as conservative as he was before elected as governor!

    when he goes to court they should have thousand go to court with him.. block all door ways peaceful protest..........if he gets jailed.... have him go on hunger strike like gandhi call him gun- dhi...for the 2 amendment and the bill of rights i'm not kidding these tactics broke the British in India and helped martin Luther king Jr. get his point across these tactics work with out firing a shot if we start shooting we will lose the people

  9. It just keeps getting better! Now comes the piling on ... lets all get on board this movement. It will take all of us to preserve the freedoms we have remaining.
    GOD Bless The U.S.A..

  10. GOOD its time to take a stand against the anti- 2nd amendment crowd, and OBABLER CARE.

  11. There is NOT a single so called expert from the government that has stated ANYTHING truthful about these ILLEGAL gun laws.

  12. This hasn't even been presented on the floor yet..... At this point this is all conjecture.

  13. If he has caved once, then once again (based on the facts of Obubba's "experts"), then he will most certainly cave again. A servant always wants to make their master happy. His first job will be to make sure the people believe that he will support the law before it comes to his desk, so he can ensure that he is still in power when it reaches him, then not sign it when it finally gets there. If I'm not mistaken, it will not be able to be brought back up until the next session of the state legislation (6 months to a year), giving obubba and his minions more time to gather troops that support them, get more police on their side and put more legislation down to take more of our rights to be armed away. Has anyone else noticed that you can't seem to find any more .223 or 5.56 NATO ammunition any more. I've been looking for over a month and I can't find a SINGLE box anywhere? I don't believe it is due to hoarding either. A gun serves no purpose without the ammunition to operate it. If anyone knows of a good supplier that has these rounds, please reply. Thanks and good luck to us all...Keep your powder dry and your knife sharp!

    • This is one of the reason DHS has been buying such large quantities. It's to overwhelm the manufacturers with orders and clear the shelves of stores so we "peons" can't find ammunition while they work to seek bans on them all. Believe me, the next ban they'll seek is on certain calibers. It's illegal in most of Europe for civilians to own a firearm that uses 9mm parabellum (9x19mm) ammunition. That is for police and military only. What purpose that serves one can only guess, but they made it illegal decades ago. When I was living in Italy in the early 90s I bought a Beretta 92FS, but it came in 9x21mm, because 9x19mm was illegal. Strangely enough, even our Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agents had to carry firearms in 9x21mm.

  14. The problem is all the so-called experts--like the convicted domestic terrorist buddy of the usurper that is now an "education expert". It's time to stop looking to experts with an ideological bent and use a little common sense.

  15. I hope Florida comes up with a law like Utah they have have the best gun laws in the country against this communist muslim obama government.But Florida doesn't have the balls like most states.
