U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday the Ohio Senate Overwhelmingly passed Constitutional Carry legislation, Senate Bill 215, by a 23 to 8 vote. The measure now heads to the house to be scheduled for further consideration.
Senate Bill 215 allows a law-abiding adult who is at least 21 years of age, and legally allowed to possess a firearm, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.
Thank you to bill sponsor, Senator Terry Johnson, as well as to those Senators who voted in favor of Senate Bill 215.
