Ohio Becomes The 23rd Constitutional Carry State In Major Win For Gun Rights

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine just signed a bill that allows people to conceal carry without a permit. It’s a major win for gun rights and the Second Amendment.

Democrats have tried to push for more gun control but have largely failed. There are simply too many new gun owners in the United States as the direct result of liberal policies which led to higher crime.

This is great news.

Senate Bill 215 allows anyone aged 21 or older to carry a concealed firearm unless they are prohibited from possessing a gun under state or federal law.

The decision by DeWine makes Ohio the 23rd constitutional carry state, according to the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action.

“NRA thanks Gov. DeWine for signing this critical bill that upholds the Second Amendment in Ohio, for the benefit of law-abiding citizens,” the lobbying arm of the NRA stated.

SB215 will also eliminate penalties for motorists who fail to proactively tell law enforcement about concealed handguns in their vehicles during traffic stops. However, drivers would still have to say whether they have a gun with them if an officer requests, according to cleveland.com.

Previously, drivers faced a first-degree misdemeanor, a $1,000 fine, and suspension of their concealed-handgun license if they failed to proactively tell authorities that they have concealed handguns on them, the news website reported.

Other states may follow Ohio’s lead.
