Ohio: Senate Committee to Take Public Comment on Important Right-to-Carry Confidentiality Legislation this Wednesday

Monday, June 17, 2013

This Wednesday, June 19, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee will be taking testimony on legislation to further protect the confidentiality of Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holders, Senate Bill 60.  This important hearing will start at 9:00 a.m. in the North Hearing Room of the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.

The NRA encourages individuals to attend and speak in support of this critical confidentiality reform.  If you are unable to attend Wednesday’s hearing, please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee and urge them to support SB 60.  Contact information for members of this committee is provided below.

Senate Bill 60, sponsored by state Senator Joe Uecker (R-14), would permanently protect the confidentiality of concealed handgun license holders throughout the Buckeye State by eliminating the journalist access exception to this information.  SB 60 is a vital step towards ensuring the protection and safety of law-abiding gun owners given the history of journalists who have abused the current system to obtain personal information—including the name, county of residence and date of birth—of license holders in Ohio.  This measure affords Ohio carry license holders the same protections that residents in forty states already enjoy due to Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws in place.
