Ohio Governor Signs Important Self-Defense Legislation

posted on December 21, 2016

On Monday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed into law Sub. Senate Bill 199—an NRA-backed self-defense measure that will benefit all of the state’s law-abiding gun owners.

This law is another step forward in protecting the Second Amendment rights of active-duty military members, employees and law-abiding Ohioans across the Buckeye State. Among other things, the law will exempt active-duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed-carry permit license requirements. Sub. SB 199 will also allow an employee to store a firearm in his or her locked vehicle without fear of employer retribution.

The amended language will also enhance law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense by expanding the list of places where citizens can legally carry concealed firearms. The law will take effect 90 days after the signing.
