DeWine Signs Bill Removing Concealed Gun Training, Permits

State Sen. Terry Johnson introduced the bill

Today, Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill that will allow anyone 21 and older to carry a gun without a permit as long as they lawfully possess it.

The measure is one of several GOP-backed proposals in recent years seeking to expand gun rights in Ohio. The bill, dubbed “Constitutional Carry” by its backers, was introduced by state Sen. Terry Johnson, a Republican from Scioto County.

Currently, the law requires Ohioans to go through eight hours of training and a background check to obtain a concealed weapon permit. With DeWine’s signature, gun owners no longer are required to obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon from their local sheriff.
