Ohio: Senate Civil Justice Committee Scheduled to Take Up Concealed Carry Reform Bill Tomorrow

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

This week, Senator Joe Uecker (R-14) introduced Senate Bill 338, legislation that makes common sense improvements to Ohio’s current concealed carry laws.
 
SB 338 would make the following significant changes:

  • Close a public property loophole in state law by preventing persons or entities leasing certain government property from banning concealed handguns from the premises.
  • Reduce the number of training hours required to obtain a concealed-carry permit from 12 hours to 8 hours and eliminate the 2-hour minimum live-fire training requirement.
  • Allows investigators of the Attorney General’s office to carry a concealed weapon while investigating nursing homes, residential care facilities, long-term care facilities, Medicaid programs, and patient abuse or neglect violations.

The first sponsor testimony hearing on SB 338 will take place tomorrow, May 14, at 9:00 a.m. before the Senate Civil Justice Committee in the North Hearing Room. Using the contact information provided below, please call and e-mail members of the Senate Civil Justice Committee today and urge them to support SB 338.
