    Ohio Bill Corrects Definition Of Automatic Weapon

    A newly introduced Ohio bill would correct the definition of automatic weapon in Sec. 2923.11 by removing the sentence that now says '"Automatic firearm" also means any semi-automatic firearm designed or specially adapted to fire more than thirty-one cartridges without reloading, other than a firearm chambering only .22 caliber short, long, or long-rifle cartridges.

    This is one Ohio gun owners should get behind!

    Yes, indeed. Many gun owners do not know about that 31 round limit.

    I hope this passes! I always thought the 31st round making your gun a "machine gun" was a bit absurd.

    I agree, we need to get behind it. It is not just gun owners who do not understand it, I have seen mags in gun shops that would be illegal to use under current Ohio law. While I do not really want such a mag, I do want the right to make that decision.

    Ohio only came out of its "no issue" status in 2004, one of the last states to do so. Small wonder that these unfriendly gun laws remain on the books.

    ???

    I thought "automatic", "high capacity", "machine gun", "high powered", "clip", "assault", "military-style", and "shoulder thing that goes up" all meant the same thing!!!

    I don't know of a 32 round mag, but a 31 rounder is illegal in Ohio as it would allow you to shoot more than 31 rounds without reloading.
