Ohio Senate Approves Concealed Carry Without a Permit

Ohio Senate approves concealed carry without a permit

A concealed weapon permit no longer will be necessary and gun owners will not have to promptly notify law enforcement they are carrying a concealed weapon if the Ohio Legislature can agree on a bill that has passed the Senate.

Senate Bill 215, which passed the Senate on Wednesday nearly along party lines, 23-8, is close to a bill that passed the House in early November. The two chambers have to work out any differences before full passage and a bill is sent to Gov. Mike DeWine.

Sen. Jerry Cirino, R-Kirtland, was the only Republican to vote against it.
