Ohio Right to Carry Needs Your Help!

JUNE 20, 2003


This week, the Ohio State Senate passed an amended version of House Bill 12, sponsored by Representative Jim Aslanides (R-94), which would allow law-abiding citizens, who have satisfied a criminal background check and taken a training course, to obtain a permit to carry a handgun concealed for personal protection. The amended version of HB 12, passed by the Senate, included a provision requiring all permit holders who are traveling in a car with passengers under the age of eighteen to secure their handguns in a locked box, making them unaccessible and unable to be used for self defense.

Please call your State Senator and State Representatives and respectfully urge them to remove the mandatory lock provision and support the House-approved version of HB 12. You can find contact information for your lawmakers by using the "Write Your Reps" feature found at http://www.capwiz.com/nra/dbq/officials/.

Please make this important call today!
