Remove Ohio's Concealed Carry Notification Law

Dear Govenor & the Legislature,

With the current language of Ohio law when Ohioans are approached by law enforcement they are required to notify "Promptly". Ohio's law does not define the word "Promptly" and may be taken any way by any law enforcement.

Only law abiding citizens are allowed to get Concealed Carry Licenses in the state of Ohio. One must have a background check, finger prints taken, photo, & listed on a Public forum. For a good honest citizen to go to jail because they did not inform a police officer in a "Prompt" manner is a shame. They were not criminals before the stop and now would be one because they simply did not talk.

We are asking the Ohio Governor & its Legislature to come up with an alternative or remove the Notification Law all together.

      In Indiana and Kentucky notification is not even required at all because it comes up automatically on the officers PC... It shouldn't be required in Ohio either.

      I would like to see this aspect of the Ohio ccw law removed. So as to prevent a power beligerrant police officer from denying me the ability to do so as happened to the lawful citizen in Canton.

      To strengthen 2nd amendment rights and to minimize abuse by law enforcement (i.e. the Canton PD issue for example).

      Promptly could mean anything
