Last month, on November 17, the Ohio House passed House Bill 227, which was then introduced into the Senate.
That means we have two bills, one in each chamber, that are halfway to the goal line. More importantly, we have successfully put Representatives and Senators on the record supporting and voting in favor of Constitutional Carry. So as we come to the close of the year, we are closer to putting a bill onto the Governor’s desk than at any time in history. And we hope to make this a reality before the primary election next year.
We sat down with leaders in the House and Senate late last year and made it known that Constitutional Carry would be our #1 legislative priority in 2021 and 2022. And we’ve been working on moving these bills every day since then, talking to legislators, lining up votes, answering questions, addressing concerns, providing information from other states, giving testimony, speaking to the media, and more.
In this week’s Keep and Bear Radio podcast, I talk with our Legislative Affairs Director about these bills and more than a dozen others, and we answer questions from our listeners and provide an inside look at how effective lobbying is done.
