Petition to Ohio State Senate, Ohio Governor, Ohio State House

Tell the Ohio House to vote NO on HB 178, permitless carry!

On April 4th, 2019, the Ohio House of Representatives referred HB 178 to the Federalism Committee. This bill is titled "Modifies weapons law; permit concealed carry without license".  This dangerous bill would allow Ohioans to conceal weapons on their person, without having to have a license. This would allow someone to carry a weapon, concealed, into crowded public areas and on city streets. People with dangerous histories, and those without any firearm safety training would be allowed to carry concealed, loaded, guns.  Anyone over 21 years of age and not prohibited by law to carry hidden loaded guns in public without a license, training, background checks, or oversight. This is extremely dangerous and would put Ohioans at risk. The sponsors of this bill call it a 'constitutional carry' bill, in their attempt to make us believe that they have a right to carry a loaded weapon hidden from the rest of us wherever and however they wish. Now they are trying to expand that to let anyone carry guns without training, licenses, and background checks. It is reckless and dangerous. The primary sponsors of this bill are Representatives Ron Hood (District 78) and Tom Brinkman (District 27). Co-Sponsors include Representatives Niraj J. Antani, Brian Baldridge, John Becker, Louis W. Blessing III, Jim Butler, Sara Carruthers, Jon Cross, Bill Dean, Kris Jordan, Candice R. Keller, J. Kyle Koehler, George F. Lang, P. Scott Lipps, Susan Manchester, Don Manning, Riordan T. McClain, Derek Merrin, Jena Powell, Craig S. Riedel, Mark J. Romanchuk, Tim Schaffer, Ryan Smith, Todd Smith, A. Nino Vitale, Scott Wiggam, Shane Wilkin, and Paul Zeltwanger. Please sign this petition and call your legislators! Tell them to vote NO on HB 178!   Yours, Ohio Students for Gun Legislation (If you have any questions, please email us at studentsforgunlegislationohio@gmail.com)

Petition to U.S. Senate

We are enforceing a proposed gun laws, This is common sense.

BILL H.R.8 ) also ( BILL H.R.1112 ) are to enhanced background Check's act of 2019 and bipartisan background Check's act of 2019. We are not taking gun's from anyone in the United States ( THIS IS #FACKNEWS ). We are just adding new law's to our 2nd amendment to make background Check's stronger for anyone that buy's gun's from gun stores or over the internet. We are also adding carry concealed weapon permit's so we know who is legal to carry a concealed weapon. Do you remember 4 year's ago when a man bought a hand gun then shot ower congress women in the head, murdered 10 year old girl and injured dozens of United States America citizens in Tucson, arizona and background Check's were stronger. As of today the background Check's are still not stronger. For the last 4 year's we have had mass shootings all over the United States of america, including school students shootings bring in gun's shooting there school students and this is going on as of today. There are 2 Bill's in the white house, they have already passed the House and now the Bill's are in the hand's of the Senate in the white house, we need to get the Senate to pass these's 2 Bill's. Here are the Bill's ( BILL H.R.8 ) ( BILL H.R.1112 ) enhanced background Check's act of 2019, bipartisan background Check's act of 2019. Everyone in the United States of america need to have the Senate in the white house to pass these's 2 bill's. .

Petition to Bruce Rauner

Ban High-Capacity Magazines in Illinois

Each year, the number of gun-related deaths in the U.S. exceeds 30,000. During the 12 months prior to May 31, 2018, there were over 20 mass murders involving firearms. The Journal of the American Medical Association calls these firearm-related deaths a health care crisis. Some say the solution is to ban automatic weapons; others say the solution is to impose waiting periods, and the administration in Washington says one solution is to arm teachers. But while we may not necessarily agree on the solution or the details, what is no longer in dispute is that something must be done. The status quo is not working. Change is needed. Sign our petition to support a ban on high-capacity magazines in Illinois. Multiple polls show that Americans favor by wide margins banning high-capacity magazines, so let us start where most of us agree. In early 2018, legislation was proposed in Illinois that would ban the sale of body armor and high-capacity magazines to anyone other than police, licensed security guards and members of the armed forces. This law was proposed after police commander Paul Bauer was killed by an assailant wearing body armor and using an extended clip in his weapon. This common sense proposal has remained stuck in Springfield. Let Governor Rauner know that the time for inaction is over. Sign our petition to support a ban on high-capacity magazines in Illinois.

Petition to Donald J. Trump, Donald J. Trump, Bryan Steil, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, Donald Trump, Charles E. Schumer

Tell Congress They Must No Longer Accept Contributions from the NRA!

After the tragic mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 15, 2018 that resulted in the deaths of 17 students and teachers and injuries to at least 17 more, it seems as though we have finally had enough of the out-of-control violence caused by people with access to AR-15s and other assault-type weapons. Despite what the NRA would like us to believe, guns do kill people! Students across the country are in fear for their lives. They are afraid to return to their schools, and are demanding major changes to our gun laws to protect them from more occurrences of the senseless violence. In support of that demand, plans are under way for a mass protest in which they will walk out from their classrooms and not return until laws are passed to ensure this never happens again. But change will never happen as long as the members of Congress are in the pocket of the NRA and the gun industry. In support of this effort to make our country a safer place for our children to grow up in, we propose the all 100 Senators and 435 Representatives sign a pledge to no longer accept donations, or funds of any kind, from the NRA or any gun manufacturer. Our lawmakers must be freed from the influence of these entities that put profit before people and actively conspire to maintain the gun culture that has allowed these unprecedented acts of violence to continue at an alarming rate. In 1996, after a man killed 35 people with a semi-automatic weapon in a popular tourist area of Port Arthur, in Tasmania, the people of Australia stood up and demanded that the their government ban rapid-fire guns to end these kinds of mass shootings. The government responded, and the proof that tougher gun laws are the solution is that there has not been one death from a mass shooting incident in Australia since the new laws were enacted. It CAN work here as well, but not as long as our elected representatives are beholden to the gun industry and their enforcers, the NRA. These are our children, the future of our country, and their voices must be heard. For America to survive and grow as a free nation, we must protect them, and ourselves, from the epidemic of deadly violence that has infected every part of our country. Let's tell our lawmakers in no uncertain terms that this must be the first step they have to take to actually protect the country and the people they took an oath to do.
