Senate vote scheduled on Ohio Restaurant Carry reform

While HB 203 is stalled in the Ohio House, SB 239 has been scheduled for a vote on Wednesday, May 26 at 9am in the Senate South Hearing Room.

SB239 provides for several reforms for Ohio's concealed carry laws, most notably removing the current ban which prohibits concealed handgun licensees from carrying their firearm into any establishment that serves alcohol. Under the provisions of this bill, a licensee would be able to as long as he or she did not consume any alcohol.

The bill also removes the many rules about how a loaded firearm may be transported in a motor vehicle bringing Ohio law in line with many states in this country.

An NRA-ILA Alert that went out urged Ohioans supporting this law to get involved:

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary - Criminal Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support SB239. Contact information for the committee can be found below.
