Ohio Considering “Permitless” Carry

posted on April 14, 2015

A proposal under consideration by Ohio lawmakers would allow residents 21 and older who are not ineligible to own a gun under federal law to carry a concealed firearm without a right-to-carry permit. The measure, by Republican Rep. Ron Hood of Ashville, is very similar to the one just signed into law by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback. 

The legislation wouldn’t do away with Ohio’s permitting system, so those wishing to could still obtain a right-to carry permit. Five other states—Alaska, Arizona, Vermont, Wyoming and Kansas—currently have laws allowing “permitless” carry.
