Urge Ohio legislators to fix the Concealed Handgun License expiration problem
When the state of Ohio "shut down" due to the COVID-19 virus, many sheriff offices shut down as well and stopped processing Concealed Handgun Licences (CHLs).
Within a few weeks, most were open again, but with limited hours or other restrictions. On top of this, demand for license applications and renewals spiked, overwhelming many offices and causing long wait times.
A recent survey shows that 28% of Ohio license holders will see their CHL expire before they can renew, and many will be without a way to legally carry concealed for up to 12 months!
This is NOT the fault of law-abiding license holders. The STATE caused these delays by issuing an emergency order to shut down the state.
We continue to push for Constitutional Carry so we won't have these problems, but extending CHLs until Ohio's pandemic emergency is over, is a simple, quick, noncontroversial fix that we believe all legislators can support.
