Important Pro-Gun Legislation to be Introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Please Contact your state Representative TODAY!

State Representative Terry Johnson (HD-89) will soon be introducing important legislation to address several problems with current gun laws by: 

  1. Establishing an automatic reciprocity between Ohio and other states that have automatic reciprocity for their concealed handgun licenses.  Currently, the Attorney General must enter into a written agreement with another state to establish reciprocity.  This bill would still allow for written agreements between the states if the other state does not have automatic reciprocity, but it eliminates the requirement for a written agreement if reciprocity can occur automatically by operation of law.
  2. Eliminating the renewed competency certification requirement for concealed carry licenses.  Currently, after the first renewal of your concealed handgun license, you must submit proof of renewed competency to show that you are range competent for all subsequent renewals.  This bill would make it so that you can simply show your existing or expiring license or your original competency certificate as proof that you have had the necessary training for all renewals.
  3. Changing the definition of a loaded firearm in a vehicle.  Currently, a firearm is considered loaded if a loaded magazine is present in the vehicle, even if the magazine is not inserted into the firearm.  This will change the definition so that the magazine must be inserted into the firearm before it is considered loaded.
  4. Defining “Concealed Handgun License” in one section of the revised code and clarifies that the definition applies to all references to a concealed handgun license in the revised code.  This will simplify the code and make it easier to read, understand, comply with, and enforce.

Please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to cosponsor this critical legislation and that the deadline to do so is this Tuesday, March 20 by 5:00 pm.  Contact information or help identifying your state Representative can be found here.
