On April 8th, 2004 Ohio House Bill 12 became law, which created a license system and numerous statutes that define the details of applying, training for, and carrying a concealed firearm in Ohio. Finding and navigating those statutes can be very complicated and confusing.
An OFCC member and forums contributor put together a collection of relevant links to the State of Ohio's online repository of the Ohio Revised Code. The revised code websites linked to below are not maintained by Ohioans For Concealed Carry.
For questions about the practices and specifics of Ohio's concealed carry law see the FAQ link at the top of this website or search the forums (also available in the menu above).
