Critical Self-Defense Legislation Heads To Ohio Governor

posted on December 10, 2016

In an extremely important and positive turn of events for Buckeye State gun owners, early Friday morning Ohio Sub. Senate Bill 199, which now includes original language from Sub. House Bill 48, overwhelmingly passed the House and final concurrence in the Senate.

The measure now goes to Ohio Gov. John Kasich for final consideration. Kasich has 10 days to consider the legislation. 

Sub. SB 199 exempts active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed-carry permit licensing requirements, and also allows an employee to store a firearm in his or her locked vehicle without fear of employer retribution. The amended language from Sub. HB 48 would also enhance law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense by expanding the list of places where citizens can legally carry concealed.

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is encouraging Ohio gun owners to contact Gov. Kasich and urge him to sign this important self-defense legislation into law. To contact the governor, click here.
