Yesterday, April 27, the Ohio Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 199. SB 199 will now go to the House of Representatives for further consideration. Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative and urge them to vote in favor of SB 199!
SB 199, sponsored by Senator Joe Uecker (R-14), would exempt active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed carry permit license requirements. The bill would make several important changes in the Concealed Handgun Law regarding a person who is an active duty member of the U.S. armed forces and is carrying a valid military identification card and a certificate issued by the person's applicable service branch indicating that the person has successfully completed small arms qualification (qualifying member of the military).
