Ohio: Right to Carry Reform Bill Moves on to 5th Hearing

Tomorrow, the House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee will have a fifth hearing for House Bill 142.  This legislation, sponsored by state Representative Scott Wiggam (R-1), would remove the requirement that a concealed handgun licensee notify a law enforcement officer that they are carrying a concealed handgun when stopped for a law enforcement purpose, like a routine traffic stop.  Under current law, when a CHL holder is stopped by a law enforcement officer, they must immediately inform the officer that they have a CHL and a firearm in the vehicle.  Failure to do so could result in a misdemeanor and the CHL being suspended. Please contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 142!  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.
