Just finished reading the bill, and a few thing jumped out to me.
First, the new section 2923.26 (B) is entirely superfluous as it is already required by Federal law and a violation would result in Federal penalties including their revocation of their FFL.
(B) No federally licensed firearms dealer shall transfer a
firearm to any person unless the federally licensed firearms
dealer complies with the requirements of 18 U.S.C. 922(t).
Any FFL providing the service of facilitating a transfer under this bill has an additional burden as it requires them to conduct *two* background checks, one through the NICS system as they already do, as well as a *new* background check through the office of the Ohio Attorney General. You thought that sometimes the NICS system would get backed up and cause delays? Imagine the delays when the AG office gets backed up.
It limits the fee an FFL can charge for the service of facilitating the transfer to $10 - well below the going rate of $25 for an FFL transfer. Since this service is optional, and requires *more* work than a standard transfer, one wonders how many FFLs are going to provide the service.
There are no exceptions for family, not even immediate family, or persons with a valid CHL.
You also cannot legally let someone borrow your firearm while out shooting unless you are at a range "owned or occupied by a duly incorporated organization organized for conservation purposes or to foster proficiency in firearms;" so if you live out in the country and are shooting on your own property and let your son or your friend shoot your gun, you are a criminal.
Even letting someone borrow a gun at a shooting competition is illegal unless the competition is held "under the auspices of or approved by an agency of this state or a nonprofit organization;"
For that matter, the way I read the bill even letting anyone *hold your gun and look at it* without going through an FFL would be illegal under the plain wording of this bill.
What a total and complete pile of garbage.
