Ohio Senator Joe Uecker introduced a new bill 338 allowing non-residents to attain a concealed-carry license if they work in the state of Ohio.
The Senate Bill 338 also would:
• Eliminate the 45-day waiting period that a person must go through to establish residency to get a concealed handgun license.
• Reduce the number of training hours required to get the license from 12 to eight.
• Make a person ineligible for a concealed handgun license if he or she has an out-of-state license that has been suspended for a reason that would suspend a license in Ohio.
A provision that would have expanded concealed carry rights into public buildings leased by private entities was removed from the bill. Jim Irvine, chairman of the Buckeye Firearms Association, called it “a good bill.”
“It’s good common sense that addresses real problems,” Irvine said.
