Tell the Ohio House to vote NO on HB 178, permitless carry!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


On April 4th, 2019, the Ohio House of Representatives referred HB 178 to the Federalism Committee. This bill is titled "Modifies weapons law; permit concealed carry without license". 

This dangerous bill would allow Ohioans to conceal weapons on their person, without having to have a license. This would allow someone to carry a weapon, concealed, into crowded public areas and on city streets. People with dangerous histories, and those without any firearm safety training would be allowed to carry concealed, loaded, guns. 

Anyone over 21 years of age and not prohibited by law to carry hidden loaded guns in public without a license, training, background checks, or oversight. This is extremely dangerous and would put Ohioans at risk.

The sponsors of this bill call it a 'constitutional carry' bill, in their attempt to make us believe that they have a right to carry a loaded weapon hidden from the rest of us wherever and however they wish. Now they are trying to expand that to let anyone carry guns without training, licenses, and background checks. It is reckless and dangerous.

The primary sponsors of this bill are Representatives Ron Hood (District 78) and Tom Brinkman (District 27). Co-Sponsors include Representatives Niraj J. Antani, Brian Baldridge, John Becker, Louis W. Blessing III, Jim Butler, Sara Carruthers, Jon Cross, Bill Dean, Kris Jordan, Candice R. Keller, J. Kyle Koehler, George F. Lang, P. Scott Lipps, Susan Manchester, Don Manning, Riordan T. McClain, Derek Merrin, Jena Powell, Craig S. Riedel, Mark J. Romanchuk, Tim Schaffer, Ryan Smith, Todd Smith, A. Nino Vitale, Scott Wiggam, Shane Wilkin, and Paul Zeltwanger.

Please sign this petition and call your legislators! Tell them to vote NO on HB 178!
