Pulling Back the Curtain - How the Vitale Amendment Died on the House Floor

Tuesday morning, at the request of Ohio Gun Owners, Representative Nino Vitale (R-Urbana) attempted to run a major pro-gun amendment to HB142 that would benefit gun owners across the state. If you’ve been watching our emails or seeing our Facebook posts, you already know that in its original form, HB142 was a rock-solid bill that would’ve eliminated Ohio’s notorious “duty to notify” law that requries CHL holders to notify law-enforcement on
