Ohio: Concealed Carry Expansion Legislation May Receive House Floor Vote Tomorrow!

Please contact your state Representative and urge them to support Sub. HB 48!

Concealed carry expansion legislation, Sub. House Bill 48, will likely come up for a floor vote in the Ohio state House of Representatives tomorrow, November 17.

As previously reported, 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.

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

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