Ohio Senate 2004
The effort to restore Ohioan's self-defense rights came at a great price. While Ohio's new concealed carry law is already saving lives, it has also proved to be faulty in several ways.
Calls for making legislative improvements to this law started almost the day it was passed. But know this - efforts to "reform the reform" will only be as successful as are efforts to achieve victory in the elections listed below. We must protect our "veto-proof" majority in the Ohio House, and we must change the makeup of the Ohio Senate, if we are to make improvements to this law anytime before Bob Taft leaves office in 2006.
