COLUMBUS, OHIO — The good citizens of Ohio can now carry a concealed firearm without a permit or training as of June 13th, 2022. The law, which was signed by the Governor back in March, added Ohio to the growing number of states to adopt constitutional carry over the last few years.
Ohio is still issuing concealed carry permits even with the new law in effect, which gives holders certain reciprocities with other states.
The new law also changes the duty to inform law for the state to ‘if asked’. This means that if a concealed carrier has an interaction with an officer, they only need to inform the officer of their concealed firearm if they are asked.
