(TIFFIN) – State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin), Republican candidate for Ohio’s 26
Senate District, issued a statement today reaffirming his strong support for Second amendment rights saying that he would vote “no” on the proposed “red flag” legislation pending in the Ohio General Assembly.
Rep. Reineke issued the following statement:
“I have been an unwavering supporter of the Second Amendment my entire life. All Americans are clearly and unequivocally given a Constitutional right to own and operate a firearm to protect themselves and their families. Red flag laws are government overreach and I am genuinely concerned that they would unduly chip away at law-abiding citizens’ Constitutional rights, which is something I simply cannot support.
Mental health issues are very important to me and we have worked tirelessly at the Statehouse to provide more funding and resources to assist in this crisis. I’m committed to continuing to work on mental health issues without infringing on individual Constitutional rights of Ohioans.”
During his time in the Statehouse, Bill Reineke has been a tireless defender of the 2
Amendment. In each of his past elections, Bill Reineke has been consistently endorsed by Buckeye Firearms and A-rated by the National Rifle Association.
State Representative Bill Reineke was raised in Fostoria and is the eldest of ten children. A graduate of Morehead State University, Reineke has spent his career in business in northwest Ohio, employing over 450 Ohioans. Reineke was first elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 2014 and is a leader on workforce development issues. A 100% pro-life, pro-2
Amendment conservative, Reineke is a thirty-year resident of Tiffin and is a proud father of his two adult daughters, Suzanne and Jacquelyn.
