Anti-Gun Groups Pushing Ohio Gov. Kasich To Veto Self-Defense Legislation

posted on December 17, 2016

NRA-ILA is reporting that anti-gun groups have escalated their tactics and are fiercely lobbying Ohio Gov. John Kasich to veto Sub. Senate Bill 199—an important piece of NRA-backed self-defense legislation.

Sub. SB 199 exempts active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed-carry permit license requirements. The bill also makes several important changes in the Concealed Handgun Law regarding a person who is an active-duty member of the U.S. armed forces and is carrying a valid military identification card and a certificate issued by the person's applicable service branch indicating that the person has successfully completed small arms qualification (qualifying member of the military).

Sub. SB 199 also allows an employee to store a firearm in his or her locked vehicle without fear of employer retribution.

Use Your Power!

Sub. SB 199 is an important self-defense bill that aims to protect the Second Amendment rights of active-duty military members, employees and law-abiding Ohioans across the Buckeye State. Please contact Gov. Kasich and urge him to support this important bill by clicking here.
