    Concealed carry for law abidin citizens

    Me and my best friend were talking about this Saturday. He told Ohio lawmakers are trying to make a law where law abiding citizens don't need a concealed carry license to carry concealed. I just wanted to verify that anyone else has heard about this?

    Constitutional Carry

    I heard from the NRA site that Ohio was a state that was considering of making a Constitutional Carry Law. Basically it will do away with the Concealed Carry permit carry system. Already 4 states have adopted this measure. I hope Ohio does!

    Hey, fellow Buckeyes!

    I've heard rumors of the Constitutional Carry thing, but have found no hard and fast links or information about it outside of other people saying they heard rumors here or on other more Ohio specific forums. If somebody has some solid evidence of the legislature considering this I'd be greatly obliged if he/she could post them, as I really want to look over any efforts to see what precisely is or isn't being suggested at the Statehouse level.

    Ohio really seems to be sprinting out of the gate with re-normalizing firearms carry, and I'm as happy as a clam in a stream about it!

    Here is the actual bill:

    http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/b...?ID=129_HB_256

    Since the bill has no co-sponsors and has had no committee hearings since it was introduced last June, I wouldn't hold my breath expecting it to go anywhere. Ohio is probably years away from accepting Constitutional Carry.

    Thanks RT48

    Don't be too pessimistic though, Wisconsin of all places is suddenly armed legally now. Stranger things have happened.

    So you lose reciprocity with other states and you lose the ability to ever get to legally carry within 1000 ft of a school? That doesn't really seem worth it. If your permit system is as easy and cheap as Kentucky's then you gain just a little but lose a lot.

    The idea constitutional carry would allow CC without a permit but still allow a permit system so you can freely travel to states not so quick to come around and so your state can permit you to be within 1000ft of a school.

    I strongly suspect that a CHL system would remain in place, such as we see in Arizona and Wyoming, which would allow one to get a CHL for reciprocal purposes with other states. The 1000 foot thing, I wonder, could be looked at if any real legislation bubbles up.
