On Monday, Ohio joined 23 other constitutional carry states after Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill into law that will allow residents to conceal carry without a permit.
Senate Bill 215 allows any person age 21 or older to conceal carry a firearm as long as they are not prohibited to possess a gun under the state or federal law.
It will also do away with penalties for motorists who do not proactively alert law enforcement officers about concealed handguns in their vehicles during a traffic stop. However, if an officer asks, they must truthfully answer whether they have a gun with them.
Fox News reports:
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.
"NRA thanks Gov. DeWine for signing this critical bill that upholds the Second Amendment in Ohio, for the benefit of law-abiding citizens," said the lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association.
Supporters of the bill argued that law-abiding citizens have a right to carry concealed weapons under the Second Amendment unless there is a compelling reason to stop them from carrying. They argued the decision empowers those citizens to exercise their right to carry without having to go through government red tape and delays.
Opponents of the bill argue that it will make Ohioans and law enforcement officers more vulnerable to gun violence. The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police, Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey and the Ohio Mayors Alliance had opposed SB215.
Personally, I am surprised to hear that DeWine passed the bill considering he acted like a RINO during the entire pandemic. Yet now he has come back to his Conservative roots? Perhaps it has something to do with wanting to be re-elected, eh?
