"Duty To Inform" Measure On Tap This Week In Ohio

posted on May 15, 2017
The Ohio House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee on Tuesday will consider pro-gun House Bill 142.


The measure would remove the requirement that a concealed handgun licensee notify a law enforcement officer that they are carrying a concealed handgun when stopped for a law enforcement purpose, like a traffic stop. Currently, Ohio concealed handgun licensees who comes into contact with a law enforcement officer must immediately inform the officer that they are carrying a concealed handgun. 

As NRA-ILA pointed out in a Friday update, when pulled over most individuals are not thinking about the “duty to inform” requirement, rather what action might have resulted in their detainment. Adding another element in the “traffic stop” process for the driver is confusing at best and might result in an unintended criminal penalty and an additional fine.

Use Your Power!

NRA-ILA is encouraging Ohio gun owners to contact members of the committee and urge them to support HB 142. Contact them by clicking here.
