Today, Governor John Kasich (R) signed NRA-backed House Bill 495 into law. This bill was introduced by state Representative Terry Johnson (R-89) to address several problems with current Ohio gun laws.
An amended substitute to the original bill passed in the Ohio Senate on December 13 by a 26-7 vote and the Ohio House of Representatives concurred with that version later in the day by a 66-23 vote that includes further clarifications regarding the transportation of loaded magazines and firearms and permits lawfully owned firearms to be stored in vehicles in some government-owned parking lots. However, in order to ensure its passage during this legislative session, the sections regarding expanding concealed carry reciprocity were amended out of the bill with a commitment to address this issue early next session.
The final version of this bill remains strong and includes several necessary improvements to Ohio’s concealed carry laws. The final version of HB 495 makes the following changes:
This measure will go into effect ninety days from today.
Thank you to all NRA members who contacted your elected officials in support of this priority state legislation!
