Ohio House presented with legislation that would proclaim the state a Second Amendment Sanctuary.
House Bill 62 is sponsored by Republican state Reps Mike Loychik and Kiane Grendel.
Fox 8 reports that HB 62 “would have the power to nullify any federal law or court ruling that goes against the second amendment,” including:
- Tax on guns or ammunition
- Registering or tracking guns and their owners
- Any act forbidding gun ownership or transfer
- Any act ordering the confiscation of guns
The bill is referred to by Rep. Loychik as the “safe haven” act by The Statehouse News Bureau.
The push for sanctuary status at the state level comes as Republicans removed the universal background check from Gov. Mike DeWine’s (R) budget.
On April 14, 2021, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Pete Ricketts (R) proclaimed Nebraska a “Second Amendment Sanctuary State.”
The proclamation’s warning was highlighted by NTV ABC, “The White House and U.S. Congress have announced their intention to pursue measures that would infringe on the right to keep and bear arms.” As a result, “Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life.”
