Recently, gun-control advocates have pushed for sportsmen and gun owners to carry firearms insurance. They figure requiring insurance will “promote” responsible firearm ownership, along with being able to use insurance money to offset the cost of violent crime caused by criminals. This tactic is nothing more than an attempt to punish us, the law-abiding, for owning a lawful product and making us pay for the criminal acts of others.
Ohio’s pro-gun legislators are pushing back. On Wednesday, March 1, at 3:30 p.m. in the North Hearing Room, the Senate Veterans & Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 58. This legislation prohibits a person from being required to purchase firearms insurance or pay a fee to possess a firearm, part of a firearm, its components, ammunition or a knife.
Please use our take action button to email the members of the committee urging them to support SB 58. Criminals will not be purchasing firearm insurance, and law-abiding sportsmen and gun owners should not be made to pay for their firearms freedom.
Don’t forget to share this message with your family, friends, and fellow sportsmen and urge them to email the committee also.
