Jones Votes to Protect 2nd Amendment Right

COLUMBUS –State Representative Don Jones (R-Freeport) supported legislation with a vote on the Ohio House floor that would allow law-abiding Ohioans to carry a concealed handgun without a permit. The measure was been approved by the Ohio House of Representatives.

Senate Bill 215 states, if you are 21 years of age and legally qualify for a concealed carry license then you can legally carry a handgun without receiving any additional licenses.  

The legislation, Senate Bill 215, is similar to a measure approved by the House in November.

“I stand by law-abiding Ohioans and their constitutional right to possess a firearm. Ohioans 2nd amendments rights must be protected and I will continue my work to do just that serving the people of the 95th district,” said Jones. 

Under the bill pending before lawmakers, Ohioans could still apply for a concealed handgun license if they wish but it would no longer be mandatory. Some Ohioans, for example, may seek a concealed-carry permit for reciprocity purposes when traveling to other states.

Final approval was received today from the Ohio Senate and the bill will next head to Governor DeWine.
