Sen. Wachtmann (R-1) Introduces SB24 - Concealed Carry Licensure
Sen. Lynn Wachtmann, a Republican from Napoleon, introduced SB24 on Wednesday, along with 9 co-sponsors, that would allow citizens to carry concealed weapons.
"It's substantially similar to the bill he introduced last year," said a Wachtmann aide. "The changes are minor and technical in nature."
Commentary by Chad D. Baus:
For those of you who are new to the history, SB130 is almost verbatim to the language that HB274 was "introduced as" before it received significant re-design, and includes FBI fingerprints. We believe SB24 will either be heavily modified in the Senate, or more likely, the Senate will wait for HB12 to be passed out of the Ohio House.
We applaud the Senate's efforts to keep the issue of legal self-defense via concealed carry reform on the forefront.
Special thanks to those OFCC and OFCC PAC supporters who took the time to contact their Senators encouraging co-sponsorship of this bill.
