(ModernSurvival.org) – Second Amendment advocates have reason to celebrate. Another state has joined the growing list of those that do not require a government-issued permit to carry a concealed firearm.
ANOTHER CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY WIN! Ohio is now the 23rd state to sign permitless carry into law.

On Monday, March 14, Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio signed Senate Bill 215 into law. The bill removes the requirement to possess a permit to carry a concealed handgun, so long as the individual is legally allowed to own the firearm.
Previously, Ohioans were required to pass a background check and take eight hours of training before getting their permit.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) was quick to congratulate Gov. DeWine, saying, “Any right requiring a fee or government permission slip isn’t much of a right at all.”
According to the NRA, Ohio is now the 23rd state that doesn’t require a permit for law-abiding citizens to concealed carry. The other states include:
- New Hampshire
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
With crime rates skyrocketing across the nation, perhaps criminals will think twice before committing a crime in Ohio. After all, they have no way of knowing which potential victim is actually armed and ready to defend themselves now.
For those considering purchasing a concealed carry firearm for themselves, we have a handy guide on what to consider when selecting the right gun here.
