Changes Coming to Ohio’s Concealed Carry Law!
From Our Friends at Buckeye Firearms:
Buckeye Firearms Association is pleased to announced that changes made to Ohio law via the recently-passed Senate Bill 199 will take effect on March 21, 2017.
The changes and improvements made to Ohio law for gunowners include the following:
• Prohibit a business entity, property owner, or public or private employer from banning a person who has been issued a valid CHL from transporting or storing a firearm or ammunition when the items are locked in a person’s privately-owned motor vehicle on company property.
• Allow CHL-holders to keep their handgun locked in a motor vehicle on school premises.
• Allow colleges and government bodies to decide for themselves if concealed-carry should be allowed.
• Allow CHL-holders to carry on private aircraft, in the non-secure area of airports and in day-care centers (unless the day care posts a “no-guns” sign).
• Allow active military members who have the same or greater training than that required to obtain a concealed handgun license (CHL) to carry a concealed firearm as a license-holder to carry without a license.
• Allows the sale of firearms to active duty military members without regard to their age. Current law prohibits those under 21 from purchasing a handgun.
