What Business Owners Need to Know About the Ohio Concealed Handgun Law

Ohioans For Concealed Carry has announced the launch of a new, web-based educational guide for business owners, aimed at answering their questions about implementation of the new concealed handgun license (CHL) law.

After failing to scare business lobbyists into the fight in 2003, and after loosing in the legislative arena just weeks ago, gun ban lobbyists are now hoping to convince business owners to discriminate against employees and customers who choose to obtain a CHL for self-protection.

The guide examines issues ranging from liability concerns to a fabled OHSA conflict, and provides answers utilizing a wealth of data available to business owners from OSHA, other states' Chambers of Commerce, crime data, and Ohio and national public opinion polls.

There are no credible studies that show increased dangers to businesses because of concealed carry, yet many prove the benefits.

Every state that borders Ohio has a law similar to the one that has now passed here. We are certainly not breaking new ground with a concealed carry reform bill in Ohio. If Ohio's business leaders will simply ignore these hysterics and let this new law work, madmen will never again enjoy the luxury of walking into workplaces with assurance that their intended victims are defenseless.
