Ohio Pistol Permit News
(April 8, 2015) Bill introduced to allow concealed carry without permit: Rep. Niraj Antani introduced a bill in the Statehouse to allow citizens the ability to carry concealed firearms without a permit. The proposed law, which has 20 co-sponsors, would allow anyone 21 or older to carry any firearm not banned by state or federal law without a permit. The bill would also prohibit law enforcement from searching and detaining otherwise law-abiding citizens based solely on the possession of a firearm.
(Mar. 23, 2015) Attorney General adds reciprocity with 5 states: Attorney General Mike DeWine announced that pursuant to changes adopted in House Bill 234 of the 130th General Assembly, Ohio now has concealed carry permit reciprocity with Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, Texas, and Wisconsin. This bill provides that a concealed carry permit issued by another state is valid in Ohio so long as the permit holder is not an Ohio resident and is in the state temporarily.
