Nice safe with fingerprint lock

Had lot of requests for options to lock up handguns lately. Here's a nice safe at Costco that offers fingerprint access, for $230.

Violent relationship ends in death

We have dozens of students who come in every year to learn self defense, just in case a relationship gone bad comes back to haunt them. It happens. If you're in such a situation, best to be prepared.

A local case of this seems to be unf0lding now...

Fight back or submit and get shot?

A woman was recently shot in the stomach at the Wal-Mart in Moraine. We are constantly told that we need to cooperate with robbers, but the end result of this woman complying was being shot in the stomach.

A good article you might want to consider posting...compliance has never been safe and we must take our defense into our hands.

*Thanks to Brad for the info.

Who needs a gun in a national park?

Ken Blackwell to chair Ohio RNC?

Would be a good thing for Ohio gun owners. Blackwell is a strong gun-rights supporter.

NRA fights to keep CHL fee in Ohio from increasing

Looks like it was being pushed to $80, but the NRA stepped in when the numbers didn't add up, and it'll stay at $55, for now.

Thank the NRA for all the efforts in watching out for gun owners and concealed carry!

Chicago mayor to hold anti-gun conference

Sometimes you're left to fend for yourself

Be it a natural disaster like Katrina, riots like in LA, or even a nasty snow storm. The police can't always be there to help you.

Criminals for gun control

This guy sponsored a gun buy-back program! Goes to show, the bad guys don't want the good guys to be armed.

If you don't like it, tax it

One thing to watch out with this new gov't-- the tendency to tax as a disincentive. It's been tried before with guns and ammo, let's hope they don't try it again.

An example is how NY is taxing things like non-diet soda to discourage their use. And adding 88 other fees/taxes to the mix... Jeez...

Student calls 911, dies from attack

You're told by many anti-gunners that the police will save you, should you be attacked. In this case, the 48 minutes it took for the police to arrive wasn't fast enough.

Self-protection is important. You can't count on the police to save you, and hope you don't live in a place, like a college campus, where guns are forbidden.

Right to carry in National Parks to be restored

From the NRA today:

The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), through the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has announced the final amended version of its changes to rules on carrying of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. DOI's move will restore the rights of law-abiding gun owners who wish to transport and carry firearms for lawful purposes on most DOI lands, and will make federal law consistent with the state law in which these public lands are located. NRA led the effort to amend the existing policy regarding the carrying and transportation of firearms on these federal lands.

A reason for concealed carry: Fight terrorism

I know, it sounds weird to say, but terrorist situations these CAN be stopped, as long as someone with a gun (and the knowledge to use it) is in the right place at the right time.

The Mumbai attack involved 10 (yes, only 10) men with rifles. If this attack would have happened in a hotel in Indiana, they probably would have been outnumbered 20-to-1 with CCW permit holders in the building, making their odds for a successful attack much more slim.

Watch out for copy-cats in the coming months. When one crack pot sees all the press these guys are getting decides he wants to be on the front page, who knows what he'll do...

Mumbai photographer: I wished I'd had a gun, not a camera

Even cops have to follow the gun safety rules

FOLLOW THE GUN SAFETY rules, and nobody ever gets hurt...

This is why we check to make sure the gun's unloaded before handling it. Every time. No exceptions.

1) Safe direction (glad it wasn't pointed at the young girl or at something more important than his leg).
2) Finger off the trigger (one flaw in the Glock-- you squeeze the trigger to disassemble, that's why the 3rd rule is so important)
3) Keep UNLOADED unless you're using it.

Talking about gun safety is not using the gun, especially if you're disassembling the gun to clean it. Check to make sure it's unloaded every time you pick it up.

Mumbai: A gun-free utopia

Explosions and shootings rock India's financial capital...

80 dead, over 250 injured...

Pools of blood at five star hotel...

TERRORIST RUN AMOK IN MUMBAI...

What they're not telling you: It is nearly impossible for a law-abiding citizen to own a gun in Mumbai. So who has the guns? The terrorists and the police. Normal citizens are left helpless to attack.

Past this, note that the terrorists were searching for American and British citizens (as reported on ABC tonight). So Americans visiting, who may have the ability to protect themselves at home, aren't given that right in Mumbai.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws have guns...

Rape on UC campus

To: UC Community

From: Capt. Jeff Corcoran
UC Police

The University of Cincinnati Police are investigating a report of a rape
which occurred in Daniels Hall between 3AM and 5AM on Saturday morning. A
possible suspect in this crime has been identified by police. The victim
reports that she was assaulted in a restroom by a male white subject,
approximately 18 to 20 years of age, 5'10" to 6'0" tall, with blond hair.
Anyone having any information regarding this crime should contact the UC
Police at 556-1111.

The University of Cincinnati Women's Center is available to provide support
to victims of sexual crimes. UCWC's Reclaim Help Line at 513.218.9531 is
available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A trained advocate will be able to
inform you of your options, provide crisis intervention and support.
University Hospital has a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program (SANE),
through which nurses are specially trained to support survivors in
treatment. They are on-call 24 hours a day. Questions? Call 584-8108.

Mexico: another gun-free Utopia

Personal firearm ownership is very restricted in Mexico--anyone who's tried to cross the boarder with a gun knows that all too well.

Looks like it isn't working out so great. Disarm the good guys and all is left is the bad... and they're armed against defenseless victims.

This is the sort of thing Democrats have been pushing for a long time. Don't make guns illegal, but limit what you can have to a very small range of options. Options they deem "safer" (read less lethal, and therefore less effective against attack).

We need to watch out for the slippery slope of gun laws. As things pass, we must fight to keep our rights. Afterall, Mexico has their own version of the 2nd Amendment, and it hasn't stopped politicians there from stripping away nearly all gun rights...

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

Election results aren't a surprise, now it's time to protect your rights

Make your belief that gun rights are important known and don't concede any ground in the face of what will probably be a tough 4-years.

It's a slippery slope with gun rights--they'll come after the low-hanging fruit like 'assault rifles,' high-cap mags, and registration, first. All of these lead to stricter regulations that will effect your ability to purchase, own and carry guns in ways you might not suspect.

A 'common sense gun law' should be met with suspicion and careful review. Should a tragedy occur, like another college shooting, the reactionary anti-gunners will pounce on the opportunity to cripple your rights.

Hold on, dig in, and don't lose hope!

Give yourself time to vote tomorrow, prepare for the new

Make sure you give yourself ample time to vote tomorrow. Rumor is they'll be a big turnout and that may mean long lines, malfunctions, etc.

If your still on the fence about local or national elections, the NRA has a good guide at www.NRA-PVF.org. Put your zip code in and it'll tell you how the candidates on your ballot feel about guns.

And, if you're like me and like to do a second patriotic thing on election day, buy a gun. I'm putting in an order for a new AR-15 (never know what a new president and congress will do!).

Pro-gun voter guide

From Buckeye Firearms Assn:

On Tuesday, you'll make the most important vote of your life.
Sen. Obama is the single most anti-gun presidential candidate in this nation's history. So it is more important than ever to VOTE PRO-GUN and make sure he doesn't get a chance to destroy decades of gun rights progress.
Download your voter guide NOW <http://www.buckeyefirearms.org/Voter-Guide> and vote for the men and women who have shown their support for your rights.
Take your friends and family to the polls. Give your work mates a ride. We all need to show up in force to defeat Obama, anti-gun Ohio candidates, and all the cartoon characters and dead people who have illegally been registered in Ohio.
Don't let this election be stolen. Don't let our rights be stolen. VOTE. And vote PRO-GUN!

New phone number!

We've upgraded our voicemail to a more reliable service (anyone who's been forwarded to one of our instructor's cell phones and been surprised knows why).

Our new number is (513) 672-9714. The old number will forward for a while, but we wanted everyone to update their records. This number is a general mailbox that forwards to our instructors. Using the VM service allows the proper instructor to quickly respond to you, and allows people to register for classes who don't want to do so online.

Thank you, and please update your contact list!

ODOT removing no guns signs

An update from our friends at Buckeye Firearms Assn:

ODOT: Rest Stop "NO GUNS" signs to come down

Buckeye Firearms Association has just received word from ODOT that the NO GUNS signs at state rest stops have been ordered removed. In the telephone call to BFA Leader and NRA EVC Rick Jones, ODOT stated that their legal department has confirmed with multiple state departments that the signs are to be removed.
BFA would like to extend our thanks to Rick Jones and all the other BFA volunteers who called or wrote regarding these rest stop signs. Remember to vote in the upcoming election to help preserve hard-won breakthroughs like this!

Boy dies shooting automatic weapon

Horrible accidents like this are very rare, but when they do happen, it's a reminder to anyone who owns or uses firearms how much respect and care must be given to their use. Especially firearms that have particularly dangerous habits, like automatic weapons that force the muzzle to rise with each shot. If someone who cannot handle the recoil is using the weapon there can be disastrous consequences.

Very few people die from gun accidents in the US. In fact, gun accidents have recently reached all-time lows, even while gun ownership is at an all-time high (total guns in circulation).

Be careful, shoot safe, and never put someone in danger in the use or possession of a firearm. It's your responsibility as a gun-owner, and we pray for the family of this young boy.

Gun-owner's guide to 2008 elections

The NRA has put together an easy-to-understand guide to the election, rating each candidate from A-F on how they stand on gun rights, based on a questionnaire they've filled out and their past record.

As every election, there are many issues to vote on. But if gun rights are important to you, it may be good to at least pay attention to the NRA's recommendations.

Here is Ohio's guide: http://www.nrapvf.org/Elections/State.aspx?y=2008&State=OH

On the main page you can type your zip code and it'll generate a guide just for you, or click another state.

Make sure you vote. Even if you don't care who wins the big races, it's often the local races that impact your daily life, especially when it comes to gun rights.

Our next Atty General- either is good for gun owners

The NRA gives both Mike Crites and Richard Cordray A's for their gun-rights beliefs. That's a good thing for gun owners in 2009, no matter who wins any other election!

UC crime update

October 14, 2008

To: UC Community

From: Karen K. Patterson
Captain
University of Cincinnati Police Department

The University of Cincinnati Police have received information from
Cincinnati Police about a series of robberies that occurred on Monday,
October 13, near the UC campus between 10:10 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. During the
same time period, an attempted robbery was reported at 51 West Corry Street
on campus.

The off-campus incidents were reported at 2700 Glendora Avenue, 2300 Ohio
Avenue, and 2100 Ohio Avenue. In each incident, two suspects walked up to
the victim. One suspect then displayed a handgun and demanded money. Taken
in these offenses were a cell phone, cash, and a Blackberry Pearl. In one
incident the victim ran off so nothing was taken in the offense.

Suspects in all of the reported cases are described similarly. The first
suspect is described as a male black 15-20 years of age 5'7" to 6'0" feet
tall weighing 175 lbs. The second suspect is described as a male black
15-20 years of age who is 5'8" to 6'0" and weighing 110 to 150 lbs.

It appears that each of these victims was alone at the time of the incident.
Please remember that the Bearcat Transportation System, Nightwalk and Metro
are all possible methods of transportation so that students, faculty and
staff do not have to walk alone in the evening.

If you have any information concerning these crimes please contact Crime
Stoppers at 352-3040.

Pursuit Onto UC Campus Leads To 3 Arrests

To:     UC Community

From:   Eugene  R. Ferrara
       Director of Public Safety/Police Chief

An incident on the University of Cincinnati campus on Tuesday afternoon has
led to three arrests. Cincinnati Police, in pursuit of a car reported to be
stolen, chased the vehicle onto Corbett Drive, where the vehicle crashed.
Three occupants were in the car. One suspect got out and ran through the
west side of campus.  The subject was caught near TUC and some of his
clothing was found by McMicken.

Initial reports by Cincinnati Police suggested that a firearm might have
been involved, but no firearm was seen on campus.  UC Police are checking
the area where the subject ran to see if a firearm was dropped.  None of the
three suspects had a firearm when they were arrested.

Rest in Peace, Jimmy

You may have heard about a head-on collision on St. Rt. 28 this morning. An intoxicated 17-yr old hit a 59-yr old Blanchester man, James Storer, head-on. Story here.

Jimmy was a Vietnam vet, an avid and accomplished shooter, and a friend to both my brothers. I've shot with Jimmy several times, and Jimmy even made a custom rifle for my little brother as a gift when he joined the National Guard.

Rest in Peace, Jimmy. The world's lost a good guy.

Reminding me why I am a gun owner

A fast-food restaurant less than two miles from my home was robbed at gunpoint tonight, the criminal fleeing on foot. This is a place I've taken my wife and young son on several occasions. I know it well, and I know the surrounding area. It's where my family spends nearly all our free time, including this evening until about an hour before the incident occurred. And it's a nice part of town.

This is why I own a gun, and more specifically, why I carry a gun. Not because I think I'm a cowboy or an action-hero, but because bad things happen, everyday, in places we all think are safe. If I would have been there, unarmed, and the criminal had intentions beyond just the cash in the drawer, my family would have been helpless.

You cannot rely on the police when a crime in in progress. You must be able to protect yourself and those you love. This is the fundamental reason why I am a gun owner and why I have a concealed carry license.

If you ever need a reminder that bad things happen to good people everyday, watch your local newscast. Hopefully you, or someone you love, won't ever be featured in it.

High court ruling triggers gun ban repeals, NRA suits

UC campus crime update

Sept. 4, 2008

To: UC Community

From: Eugene R. Ferrara

Director of Public Safety/Police Chief

The University Police have received information from the Cincinnati Police that there was a robbery that occurred at approximately 3:00 AM on Sunday, August 31st. This crime happened in the rear of the building at 20 W. Daniels St. This location is one block east of the Uptown campus between Jefferson Ave. and Short Vine St. The victim was approached by two suspects carrying handguns who took money from him. The victim was struck in the face by one of the suspects during this offense. Both suspects were wearing masks, and the victim is not able to provide any description useful in identifying the suspects, nor did he see the direction and method of travel for the suspects as they fled the scene.

There has been an increased activity in street robberies in the neighborhoods around the Uptown campus, and the Cincinnati Police are implementing additional police resources in an attempt to catch the criminals. The University Police are also increasing their presence in these neighborhoods. These crimes are following a pattern regarding times and methods. They are occurring between the hours of 10:30 PM and 3:30 AM, with multiple suspects, most often armed with handguns. If you must be on the streets during these times please remain aware of your surroundings and other persons who may be present on the street. Stay in well lit areas and travel in groups whenever possible. If well-populated areas are available, go to such locations if you feel you are being followed. Notify the police of any suspicious activities.

The University Police disseminate information about crimes on and near campus to allow members of the UC community to be alert to times and places of such crimes and avoid possible repetition of the crimes. You are also encouraged to provide any information you may have regarding crimes by calling the Cincinnati Police at 352-3587 or Crime Stoppers at 352-3040.

Lifetime NRA member chosen as McCain's running mate

"We can all agree."

All politics but guns aside for a moment.

Last night, Obama said in his speech "The reality of gun ownership may be different for hunters in rural Ohio than for those plagued by gang-violence in Cleveland, but don’t tell me we can’t uphold the Second Amendment while keeping AK-47s out of the hands of criminals."

To repeat a line he used in his speech-- HE JUST DOESN'T GET IT.

AK-47's are illegal for anyone but those with special permits. They're nearly impossible to get, and no "criminal" would ever have an AK-47 from picking one up at a gun show, gun shop, or any legal means. They'd have to buy one illegally, and the penalties for anyone owning a fully automatic gun like an AK-47 are HUGE. Like serious Federal prison time, huge.

That's the problem many have with politicians pushing "sensible gun laws." They don't even know what's legal and what's not. Current law not only forbids a "criminal" from having an AK-47, but forbids a criminal (meaning someone who has been convicted of or is committing a Federal crime) from TOUCHING a gun of any sort.

The criminal with the AK-47 should be IN JAIL. We all agree on that. In fact, we've already all agreed on that. That's why it's the law. If what he said is true, word-for-word, no new gun laws are needed. Just tougher enforcement. But that's not what he's saying.

Enforce the current law. That's what the NRA says. That's what gun owners say. That's not what Obama is pushing--he's pushing NEW laws. Making it harder for law-abiding gun owners to have, access, and carry guns.

HE JUST DOESN'T GET IT. That's the problem. And that's why you need to think which candidate will protect YOUR gun rights. Not the criminals, who already don't have any gun rights.

North Texas school district will allow teachers to carry guns

Click above to read the article.

Check out this quote:
"When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that's when all of these shootings started. Why would you put it out there that a group of people can't defend themselves? That's like saying 'sic 'em' to a dog," Thweatt said in Friday's online edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Florida Concealed Carry License now valid for 7 years

And the fee didn't go up - $117 for 7 years of coverage! It's not retro-active, so you'll have to have been issued your license after June 11, 2008.

Good news for non-resident FL CCW holders!

You never know when choas (and a need for personal defense) will break out

Church fights back, stops slaughter

Many would have you believe that fighting back will only lead to more bloodshed. Concealed carry, and cases like this where people tackled an attacker, prove otherwise. Good thing people were physically close enough, and brave enough, to attack.

Personal Protection and Pistol Marksmanship scheduled

We've added our second Personal Protection class to the summer schedule, and a Pistol Marksmanship class as well.

Personal Protection is step beyond Basic Pistol. It basically goes over specific techniques that a civilian should know to defend him/herself with a firearm. You must have completed Basic Pistol in order to take this course. It costs $70 plus a $5 range donation, and you'll need about 300 rounds of ammo for your gun or one of ours.

Pistol Marksmanship is for those who want to 1) Spend a couple of hours at the range with an instructor as a refresher to tune in their ability to shoot, 2) Took a Basic Pistol class from someone who didn't teach them to shoot very well (e.g. at a short distance) and would like to learn how to do it right, 3) Want to borrow our guns to figure out what they might want to buy, or 4) Want to learn how to shoot but don't want to sit through a Basic Pistol class. No matter your reason, Pistol Marksmanship has become one of our more requested classes, so you might want to sign up if the date works for you. The cost is $40 plus $5 for a range pass, and you'll at least 200 rounds of ammo. You do not need any experience with firearms to attend this class.

Pistol Marksmanship will be held Aug. 30 from 9am - 11am, and Personal Protection Sept. 27. Sign up today to secure your spot at www.AdvancedShooting.com.

New DC gun rule almost as bad as before

Remember to TEST your carry bullets

Received a report today from a student who bought a Sig 225 (great deal on these guys at both AimSurplus.com and CDNNSports.com, by the way), but is having trouble feeding Winchester Hollow Points through it.

Remember to always try your desired carry bullet through your carry gun. That doesn't mean you have to go out and spend a fortune on expensive bullets every time you go to the range, just that you should run a few through it to make sure there are no issues.

If anyone else is running into this issue, I've been told that Hornady HPs (available at Bass Pro) feed fine in the Sig 225. I plan to test our class gun this weekend during our Personal Protection class to see if it has the same issue, as I'm not sure if it has ever had HPs in it. I'm a fan of Federals, and will test those as well.

It's worth a few expensive bullets to make sure the gun will work when you need it to!

Chicago needs National Guard to help crime

The gun-free Utopia of Chicago needs Federal assistance, it appears, to stop violent crime.

And it looks like DC is refusing to accept Heller's permit to own a handgun... When will these people learn?

From "never touched a gun" to IDPA

.:. A nice note from a student... .:.

Hi Brandon . . . the first time I ever touched a handgun was in your last August Basic Pistol Class . . . then at the Pistol Marksmanship and also Personal Protection classes.

Well, just this weekend, at my third outing shooting IDPA, I qualified as Marksman! shooting my Springfield XD9 5"

All the proper safety techniques you taught put me in good stead shooting IDPA, as I've never been warned for unsafe pistol handling! I'm glad I didn't have any bad habits to unlearn.

I also took to heart what you'd said about using Wolf Ammo . . . and have seen more than one guy shooting an expensive 1911 at IDPA have problems with Wolf Ammo.
It boggles the mind that someone would spend upwards of $1500 on a nice 1911 and shoot cr_p ammo through it!

Thanks again!

A note on Florida non-resident CCW

We received a note from a student this week saying he waited on the phone for over 30 minutes to request a packet from the Florida Dept. of Licensing for a non-resident carry license.

Just a reminder--you can also request this information online. No wait, there. Also, remember it'll probably take several weeks for them to process your paperwork, so don't apply with the assumption that you'll have it quick. Ohio's is definitely faster, though having both is the best combo for reciprocity.

A student report on reciprocity

We had a call not long ago from a student who said he called the local sheriff of South Carolina to confirm it was legal for him, under an Ohio CHL, to carry there. He was told by the sheriff that he'd be arrested if he set foot in South Carolina with a concealed weapon.

After hearing this, one of our instructors called the sheriff and asked what the deal was. After some explaining (and defining "reciprocity" for the gentleman), he said "Well, I guess it's legal. But tell him to make sure he tells the cop he has a license and he's carrying."

Once again, this shows a very important fact--be armed with the law when your traveling. Our suggestion is to take the NRA-ILA print-out of state law with you whenever you leave Ohio. Heck, if you're unsure, go to the Attorney General's website and print out the actual reciprocity agreement with the state (as we did while we were on the phone with the student to confirm what we had told him).

An interesting report on banks

We had a student call us today who was escorted out of his bank when his carry gun was visible. He was advised by the bank manager that the bank was a Federal building, and it was illegal to carry there. He was also told the bank would be putting up signs shortly, letting everyone know you couldn't carry there.

The student politely informed the bank manager that a bank is not Federal property, though it is Federally insured, and without signs, he was within his right to carry.

Later that night, the student received a call from the corporate office of the bank. They apologized for the inconvenience, told him it was perfectly fine for him to carry in the bank, no signs would be posted, and the bank manager would be educated on the law.

The moral of the story? Be polite when confronted with someone ignorant of the law. Often times, when a gun is involved people's immediate reaction is to, well, over-react. That seems to be the case here, and we're glad it all worked out for the best.

By the way - the bank was US Bank. Goes to show--they realize that the guys with carry licenses (who have clean background checks and training) aren't the ones to worry about, and they respect a citizen's right to have the option to defend himself.

Nice to see some common sense, even if it did take a call from corporate to straighten everyone out.

When travelling, make sure you're also armed with the law

It's not uncommon that local law enforcement is unaware of rules like reciprocity. For that reason, it's not a bad idea to bring along with you a copy of the law you're following when you travel.

A good example of an easy way to do this is - when you go to another state, like South Carolina, make sure you take the reciprocity agreement with you. The doc is available for download at the Ohio attorney general's website, and allows you to have something proving that it is legal for you to carry under your Ohio CHL.

Better to be safe than sorry!

Chicago's Mayor wants to keep his gun ban

The ironic part of this is he's complaining that he needs the gun ban to keep people safe - then cites recent examples of gun violence in Chicago, all of which happened while the ban was in place.

Gun bans don't work. Letting people defend themselves does. And the framers of the Constitution understood that.

Supreme Court's gun ruling puts S.F. laws in peril

Ruling may effect other gun bans

Americans have the RIGHT to guns

Those of us who know how to read (e.g. the Constitution), aren't surprised by this at all.
The Supreme Court ruled that the DC gun ban is illegal, since Americans have the right to arms according to the constitution.

Anti-gun logic (or lack thereof)

This editorial talks about how turning Wisconsin into the "Wild West" by allowing concealed carry is a bad idea.

You've got to be kidding. 48 states allow concealed carry. Was that mentioned? Of course not. Crime goes DOWN whenever it's passed. Was that mentioned? Nope. We have years of studies and real-life experience to back up the fact that CCW laws work.

Why don't anti-gunners use actual, real-world facts to back up their case? Because they don't have any facts to back up their argument. It's all emotional, twisted logic that panders to the idea that people can't handle responsibility.

Sad, but true, that this is what "journalism" has boiled down to for many.

Blood in the streets?

The FBI is reporting that violent crime is at near-historic lows. Notice they don't credit the fact that 48 states allow people to protect themselves from criminals with concealed carry laws - a fact not lost on most people familiar with the topic.

Not to mention castle doctrine and other rules that make it easier for people to defend themselves. Meanwhile, violent crime is up in England, Australia, and other nations who clamp down on gun rights...

A new projector!

The fund has grown enough to buy a new XGA projector. We'll have improved resolution, a brighter picture, and a quieter, more energy-efficient projector!

Shooting videos in high-def, does it really get any better!?

The June 14 class should be the first to experience the upgrade. Thank you to everyone who has attended our classes - your support helps our effort to spread concealed carry in Ohio!

Personal Protection class-- July 19?

Looks like we'll be scheduling a Level II class for July. Probably July 19. Let us know how that works for you, if you're interested, so we can nail down the date!

New law questions answered

We've been getting a lot of questions about the law passed this week. See the post below for the full law and a larger list, but here are a few times to note. Remember, none of these go into effect until the gov. signs the law!
  • Carrying in a car’s glove box or console, even unlocked, is now legal.
  • All CHL holders records are private, they may only be obtained via a written media request to view the info of someone, one at a time.
  • The application form was changed to reflect the new law
  • All gov’t buildings, day-cares and schools are now required to post the anti-CHL sign, eliminating the need for a CHL-holder to “decide” if it’s legal to carry there or not.
  • It’s OK to carry into a park restroom, gov’t or non-gov’t parking facility, gov’t shelter (non-buliding), or rest-facility as long as it’s not attached to a courthouse.
*NOTE - this is not legal advice. It's your job to check out the law yourself and understand how it applies to you.

CHL fixes and Castle Doctrine passed!!

Now we're just waiting on the gov. to sign it, and he has indicated that he will! There are many fixes in this bill. Here are a few that apply to every CHL holder:

  • Clarification on how persons without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) can legally transport firearms in an automobile
  • Allows lawful concealed carry in your home without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL)
  • Clarifies an unloaded firearm as one with no ammunition in the firearm or in magazines or speedloaders, regardless of where else ammunition is stored
  • Allows lawful Concealed Carry in retail establishments with a class D6/D8 liquor license (package sales only, not bars/restaurants)
  • Allows pick up/drop off by CHL holders in school safety zones
  • Provides for mandatory legal fees for gun owners who require court orders to have firearms returned to them.
  • Allows lawful Concealed Carry in state owned shelters, restrooms and parking garages.
  • Decriminalizes Concealed Carry in privately owned parking garages.
  • Prohibits landlords from prohibiting tenants from owning/carrying firearms
  • Allows CHL holders to carry firearm in unlocked glove compartment or center console.
  • Expunged/Sealed records are no longer considered when applying for a CHL.
  • Written test is no longer required for competency renewal of CHL
A great day for firearms rights in Ohio!
