Many of you may have heard that there was a new law signed by Gov. Kasich regarding Concealed carry. It goes into effect 27 March 2013. Just wanted to share something on here that we can come back and reference to it as well as may clarify somethings for all of us.

HB 495 will make the following changes:

1. Establish automatic reciprocity between Ohio and other states that have automatic reciprocity for their concealed handgun licenses. Currently, the Attorney General must enter into a written agreement with another state to establish
concealed carry reciprocity. HB 495 would still allow for written agreements between the states if the other state does not have automatic reciprocity, but it eliminates the requirement for a written agreement if reciprocity can occur automatically by operation of law.

2. Eliminate the renewed competency certification requirement for concealed carry license renewals. Currently, after the first renewal of your concealed handgun license, you must submit proof of renewed competency to show that you are range competent for all subsequent renewals. HB495 would make it so that you can smiply show your existing or expiring license or your original cometency certificate as proof that you have had the neceessary training for all renewals.

3. Define the definition of a loaded firearm in a vehicle. Currently, a firearm is considered loaded if a loaded magazine in present in the vehicle, even if the magazine is not inserted into the firearm. HB495 would change this definition so that the magazine must be inserted into the firearm before it is considered loaded.

4. Define "Concealed Handgun License" in one section of the Ohio Revised Code and clarigy that this definition applies to all references of a concealed handgun license throughout the state code. HB495 would simplify state law and make it easier to read, understand, comply with, and enforce
