Ohio Suppressor Hunting Bill passes House

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

The bill is officially in the hands of the Ohio Senate. http://lsc.state.oh.us/coderev/hou130.n ... enDocument It should be assigned to a Senate commitee. That would be the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources Commitee. And the dance continues.

The Bill has been given to the Civil Justice Committee. The Civil Justice Committee focuses on bills, policies and issues that directly impact civil and commercial law. When they say it is ok then the Senate will vote then it goes to the Governor. He either signs it or veto’s it. If he does nothing for 10 days then it passes automatically.

Thinking "wortuson" is a troll. My SSNcN says he wouldn't cross the street to piss on him if he was on fire.
What amount of a man is composed of his own collection of experiences... and the conclusions that those experiences have allowed him to "know" for certain as "Truth"? :Ick

Wednesday May 21 at 9:30 The Civil Justice Committee of the Ohio Senate will meet for the first hearing. This is the sponsor hearing. They hear from the people who sponsored the bill. The second hearing will be the proponent/opponent/interested party hearing. Cross your fingers that it can all get done before they break for the summer at the end of June. They don't give much notice about these meetings. It was not posted until sometime on Monday May 19. Thats just 2 days notice.

This would make my coyote hunting more pleasurable with my threaded barrel 223 rem 700.

Today May 21 the first hearing of House Bill 234 took place. Here is the link. http://www.ohiosenate.gov/senate/commit ... il-justice# Go to May 21 click on the agenda view button. Then go to House Bill 234. You can read what Representative Grossman presented to the committee as the sponsor. It is a pdf. The next hearing will be for opponent/proponent/interested parties. I have no idea when that will be. They don't give much notice. I will post the date and time as soon as I get it.
