Ohio Governor Signs Constitutional Carry Bill
Governor Mike DeWine (R-OH) signed a bill making it legal for state residents to carry a gun without first obtaining a state permit. With his signature, Ohio has become the 23rd state in the nation to enact constitutional carry legislation.
Senate Bill 215 allows anyone over 21, and who is legally eligible to own a firearm, to concealed carry. It also removes the requirement that citizens inform a police officer they are carrying a weapon, although they must disclose the fact if asked. The law takes effect 90 days after its signature.
