Fairfax, VA -( Concealed carry expansion legislation, Sub. House Bill 48, is expected to come up for a floor vote in the Ohio state House on Wednesday, October 7.

Sub. HB 48, sponsored by Representative Ron Maag (R-62), would expand where Ohio carry permit holders may lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense.  The bill would also give discretion for college institutions to allow concealed carry on their campuses, as previously reported.

The importance of this legislation is underscored by the fact that since 1983, the number of Right-to-Carry states has increased from 8 to 41 “shall issue” licensing/permitting throughout the country.  As the number of Right-to-Carry states has increased to an all-time high, the nation’s murder and total violent crime rates have decreased to 44-year lows, respectively.

Please contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to vote in favor of this critical legislation.

    Although this bill does a lot of good, it also makes counties more reliant on issuing concealed carry permits which is akin to a poll tax in my opinion. Just as we shouldn’t pay to vote, we shouldn’t pay to have our inalienable right to keep or bear arms. The legislation specifically allows Sheriffs to use the revenue generated by the permits to buy ammunition. That’s not a good idea in my opinion. Think about it. We want to do away with the need for a permit like Vermont and others.
