The Second Amendment Preservation Act to nullify federal gun laws in the State of Ohio has been introduced – and needs your help to move forward.

SB36 has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Local Government & Veteran Affairs.  Having a hearing and committee vote scheduled  is the first step that’s needed towards passage.

The Tenth Amendment Center requests your immediate help by contacting your state senator to express your support for this legislation.  We urge you to CALL and EMAIL.  Strongly, but respectfully, inform your representative that you are concerned with federal infringements on the right to bear arms. SB36 can be viewed here.


1. Contact the Committee Chair.  Politely encourage him to schedule a committee hearing for SB36.

2.  Contact the rest of the members of the committee.  Make sure they’re aware that support for SB36 is strong.  Let them know, respectfully, that you expect to see a YES vote from them on SB36.

3. Encourage your local community to take action as well.  Present the 2nd Amendment Preservation Act to your city county, your town council, or your county commissioners.  Various local governments around the country are already passing similar resolutions and ordinances.  Local legislative action is a great way to strengthen a statewide campaign against 2nd Amendment violations
