Ohio: Major Pro-Gun Reform Legislation Takes Effect Today

Legislation from last session to allow for the use of firearm sound suppressors while hunting in the Buckeye State takes effect today.  As previously reported, hunting with suppressed firearms provides numerous benefits to sportsmen, including the elimination of noise complaints, reduction of recoil, increased accuracy and reduction of muzzle report to hearing-safe levels.

This new law also allows for the purchase and sale of shotguns and rifles in non-contiguous states, reforms the concealed carry process by reducing the number of training hours required from 12 hours to 8 hours and requires a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) to sign off on an application to transfer an item regulated by the National Firearms Act. 

The NRA thanks House Bill 234’s sponsor, Representative Cheryl Grossman (R-23), and everyone who helped finally pass this comprehensive pro-gun legislation.
