Ohio: Concealed Carry Expansion Legislation Scheduled for Hearing Tomorrow

Tomorrow, January 27, Sub. House Bill 48, legislation to expand concealed carry, will receive sponsor testimony before the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee at 8:45am in the South Hearing Room of The Ohio Statehouse.

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.  Sub H.B. 48 passed the Ohio House of Representatives on November 17, 2015 with a bipartisan 68-29 vote.

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 contact your state Senator TODAY and politely urge him or her to support this critical pro-gun legislation.
