“This is a straightforward bill that will ensure Ohioan’s Second Amendment rights are not infringed. This bill eliminates references of the United States Code as they relate to gun laws in Ohio,” Schmidt stated that Schmidt was referring to Just the News. “The ATF’s recent attempt to curtail Second Amendment rights by classifying legal handguns as illegal short-barrel rifles was a clear overreach of the federal government against law-abiding citizens.”
She continued: “This bill helps to stand against these unlawful rules by ensuring that Ohio gun law is the standard for those who reside in Ohio.”
House Bill 51 will prohibit law enforcement officers, including prosecutors from enforcing federal acts, laws and executive orders. Critics claim that it raises concerns about the Constitution’s Supremacy clause, but supporters argue that it doesn’t. It instead states that Ohio won’t help the federal government enforce its gun control measures.
