Ohio Lawmakers Introduce Constitutional Carry Bill
#1
Quote:Two Republican legislators propose eliminating the license required to carry a concealed handgun in Ohio, a change one describes as an effort to put Second Amendment rights on the same footing as others in the Bill of Rights.

The bill, introduced Wednesday by Reps. Ron Hood of Ashville and Matt Lynch of Bainbridge Township in Geauga County, would allow any person who is at least 21 years old to carry a concealed firearm, so long as they are not legally prohibited for some reason from having guns.

Looks to include Non-residents as well...

Quote: Sec. 2923.111. (A) Notwithstanding any other Revised Code section to the contrary, subject to the limitations specified in this division and to division ©(2) of this section, a person who is twenty-one years of age or older and is not legally prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1) to (9) shall not be required to obtain a concealed handgun license under section 2923.125 or 2923.1213 of the Revised Code in order to carry in this state a concealed firearm that is not a restricted firearm.

Except as provided in divisions (B) and © of section 2923.126 of the Revised Code and regardless of whether the person has been issued a concealed handgun license under section 2923.125 or 2923.1213 of the Revised Code or by another state, a person who is twenty-one years of age or older and is not legally prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1) to (9) may carry a concealed firearm that is not a restricted firearm anywhere in this state. The person's right to carry a concealed firearm that is not a restricted firearm that is granted under this division is the same right as is granted to a person who was issued a concealed handgun license under section 2923.125 of the Revised Code, and the person described in this division is subject to the same restrictions as apply to a person who was issued a license under section 2923.125 of the Revised Code.

(B) The mere carrying or possession of a firearm that is not a restricted firearm pursuant to the right described in division (A) of this section, with or without a concealed handgun license issued under section 2923.125 or 2923.1213 of the Revised Code or by another state, does not constitute grounds for any law enforcement officer or any agent of the state, a county, a municipal corporation, or a township to conduct any search, seizure, or detention, no matter how temporary in duration, of an otherwise law-abiding person.

©(1) For purposes of sections 1547.69 and 2923.12 to 2923.1213 of the Revised Code and any other provision of law that refers to a concealed handgun license or a concealed handgun licensee, except when the context clearly indicates otherwise, a person who is described in division (A) of this section and is carrying or has, concealed on the person's person or ready at hand, a firearm that is not a restricted firearm shall be deemed to have been issued a concealed handgun license under section 2923.125 of the Revised Code.

(2) The concealed handgun license expiration provisions of section 2923.125 of the Revised Code and the concealed handgun license suspension and revocation provisions of section 2923.128 of the Revised Code do not apply with respect to a person who is described in division (A) of this section unless the person has been issued a concealed handgun license. If a person is described in division (A) of this section and the person thereafter comes within any category of persons specified in 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1) to (9) so that the person as a result is legally prohibited under the applicable provision from possessing or receiving a firearm, both of the following apply automatically and immediately upon the person coming within that category:

(a) Division (A) of this section and the authority and right to carry a concealed firearm that are described in that division do not apply to the person.

(b) Division ©(1) of this section does not apply to the person, and the person no longer is deemed to have been issued a concealed handgun license under section 2923.125 of the Revised Code as described in that division.

They say they are doing it to put the second amendment on the same footing as others in the bill of rights, shouldn't they have made the legal age 18 and not 21?
