Ohio permits now valid in 28 states By Maria DeVito Ohioans with concealed-carry permits now can legally carry their handguns in five more states. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that Ohio has reached concealed-carry reciprocity agreements with Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, Texas and Wisconsin. Ohio already had concealed-carry reciprocity with 23 other states. A new gun law effective today requires more rigorous background checks, decreased training to obtain a permit, allows hunters to use suppressors on guns and authorizes Ohioans to buy rifles, shotguns and ammunition from any state. Additionally, concealed-carry permits issued by other states are now valid in Ohio under the new law, but only if the permit holder is not an Ohio resident and is in the state temporarily. DeWine

COLUMBUS, Ohio–Ohio will continue to recognize Virginia’s concealed-handgun permits even though Ohio permits will soon no longer be valid in Virginia, according to a state official. As of Feb. 1, Virginia will stop recognition of concealed-firearms permits from Ohio and 24 other states that have less-stringent gun permit laws, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring announced last month. Ohioans will have to obtain a non-resident license to carry a concealed handgun in Virginia. First-time violators could face a $2,500 fine and a year in jail. However, Virginia concealed-handgun permits will continue to be valid in Ohio, according to Jonathan Fulkerson, deputy chief counsel for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office. That’s because of a 2014 law requiring the Buckeye State to automatically recognize such permits from other states with similar license standards. Jim Irvine, president of the Buckeye Firearms Association, said Virginia’s new restrictions will affect not just Ohio gun owners headed to Virginia, but also those passing through on their way to North Carolina or other East Coast states. Now, Irvine said, Ohioans with concealed handguns will have to stop at the Virginia border to properly stow their firearms. The inconvenience, he said, will lead some to continue carrying their weapon illegally, hoping they don’t get caught. “You have just encouraged people to violate the law,” Irvine said. “And once you encourage people to violate one law, why are you surprised that they violate some other law?”

Application to carry a concealed handgun is made to the local sheriff on a form prescribed by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Commission.  Along with the application, the applicant must provide a color photograph taken within the last 30 days, a set of fingerprints and certification of competency with a firearm.  An applicant must be 21, a resident of Ohio for 45 days, and a resident of the issuing county (or an adjacent county) for 30 days.  The application fee minimum is $67 depending on the extent of the background check.  All concealed handgun licenses issued on or after March 14, 2007 are valid for 5 years.  If an applicant is denied, the sheriff shall provide the reasons for such a denial.  The applicant may appeal such a denial.  The renewal process for an expired permit is the same as that for an original, except that the applicant may demonstrate competency within the last 6 years or submit evidence of a renewed competency certification.  A licensee must provide notice of a change of address.  A licensee who wishes to renew a license may do so no earlier than 90 days before expiration date on the license or no later than 30 days after the scheduled expiration date.

That’s 18 states. So why do our CCW cards list 26 states? Because while some states don’t have concealed carry laws that are “substantially comparable” to those of Ohio, they have decided to “honor” our license. We don’t recognize their license, but they recognize ours.
