Ohio: Concealed Carry Expansion Legislation Passes in the House!

Yesterday, concealed carry expansion, Sub. House Bill 48, passed in the state House by a vote of 68-29.  Sub. HB 48 will now go to the state Senate for consideration.

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.  This bill would also give college institutions discretion on whether to allow concealed carry on their campuses.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group funded by billionaire and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, is working hard to kill Sub. HB 48 and to restrict your rights in the state of Ohio by using fear tactics and spreading misinformation.  

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.

Please take a moment to thank your state Representative if she or he voted in favor of this important legislation.  Your NRA-ILA will update you on this critical legislation once it has been assigned to a committee.
