Concealed Carry Reform Picks Up a Vote in Senate
The OFCC PAC volunteer staff has been hard at work, following up on the story we first reported here on January 8, concerning the replacement of anti-CCW Senator Priscilla Mead (R-16). Last Thursday, Steve Stivers (R) was sworn in as her replacement.
OFCC PAC went to work immediately to learn about Mr. Stiver's understanding of and support level for concealed carry reform efforts. We are pleased to report that Ohio's pro-CCW contingent in the state Senate has been increased by Mr. Stivers' appointment, and that his constituents in west Columbus now have a representative concerned about their constitutional right to self-defense.
Senator Stivers has told OFCC PAC's Vice Chairman that he is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and is in favor of concealed carry reform in Ohio. He is active as an officer in the Army National Guard, and shoots regularly at a public range in the Columbus area.
We look forward to working with Senator Stivers in the 125th General Assembly and beyond.
