Ohio: Concealed Carry Expansion Legislation Likely to Receive House Floor Vote This Week

Please contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to vote in favor of Sub. HB 48!

Concealed carry expansion legislation, Sub. House Bill 48, is expected to come up for a floor vote in the Ohio state House on Wednesday, October 7.

Sub. HB 48, sponsored by Representative Ron Maag (R-62), would expand where Ohio carry permit holders may lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense.  The bill would also give discretion for college institutions to allow concealed carry on their campuses, as previously reported.

The importance of this legislation is underscored by the fact that since 1983, the number of Right-to-Carry states has increased from 8 to 41 “shall issue” licensing/permitting throughout the country.  As the number of Right-to-Carry states has increased to an all-time high, the nation’s murder and total violent crime rates have decreased to 44-year lows, respectively.

Please contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to vote in favor of this critical legislation.
