There are a few ways of getting around this requirement, according the bill’s text, including transferring weapons as a bona fide gift, transfers that prevent a death or suicide, or giving your weapon to a licensed gunsmith for repairs.
The measure is supported by Ohioans for Gun Safety, a left-wing organization that also supports the state’s attempts to pass a red flag law bill and has lobbied against the constitutional carry bill currently being considered the Buckeye State’s legislature. Ohioans For Gun Safety began circulating a petition to put the measure on the ballot shortly after the recent Dayton shooting.
Ohio’s governor, Mike DeWine, told Fox News the state is crafting its new gun control legislation with the help of gun rights supporters in order to respect due process. But many of the state’s ideas, including this ballot measure, would create a path toward a gun registration system, according to real gun rights organizations.
