COLUMBUS - 

State Representative John Becker (R-Union Township) sponsored House Bill 340. This bill is similar to the Montana Firearms Freedom Act. HB 340 clarifies that the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution does not extend to products manufactured and sold entirely within Ohio’s borders.


This bill would specify that firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition manufactured within Ohio are not subject to federal regulation via the Commerce Clause as long as the products do not cross state boundaries.


“HB 340 will encourage manufacturers of firearms, ammunition, and accessories to relocate to Ohio. That will boost Ohio’s economy and create jobs,” Becker said.


House Bill 340 will be assigned to a House committee in the near future.
