BREAKING: SB 215 for Constitutional Carry Passes Out of Committee

On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, the Ohio House Government Oversight Committee voted 8-5 to pass Senate Bill 215 on Constitutional Carry.

The bill now moves to the House floor for a vote. If it clears the House, it would then go back to the Senate floor for Concurrence, then on to the Governor for his signature.

We are at a historic moment in Ohio legislative history. This is the closest we've ever been to passing a bill to make the licensing process optional for concealed carry of a firearm. Bills have been presented in former legislative sessions, but have not advanced.

After events of the last two years, with riots and lawlessness in cities across the U.S., and with many elected officials preventing law enforcement from doing their sworn duty to protect citizens, Ohio lawmakers are motivated to get government out of the way and allow citizens to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Buckeye Firearms Association declared this our #1 legislative priority for the 134th General Assembly and have been working on an almost daily basis to make Constitutional Carry a reality in Ohio.

As of the publication of this article, 21 other states have some form of Permitless Carry, and Ohio is poised to become number 22. Stay tuned.
