Contact Your Ohio Legislators, Urge Them To Override Kasich's Veto Of HB228

Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- Ohioans for Concealed Carry needs you to contact your Ohio Senator and Representative to urge them to vote to override Kasich's anti-citizen and anti-law enforcement veto of HB228!

As you may know, this bill makes improvements to Ohio's concealed carry law:

  • 1) Shifts the burden of proof in self defense shootings from the accused to the prosecutor (like 49 other states in the Union have).
  • 2) Strengthens Ohio Revised Code 9.68 to prevent municipalities from continuing to violate state preemption law without financial repercussions.
  • 3) Makes straw purchases a state crime.
  • 4) Removes the requirement to carry a second form of identification in addition to a concealed handgun license.
  • 5) Removes the requirement to post “no guns” signs in statutory locations that have opted to allow carry.
  • 6) Permits law enforcement officers without a CHL to carry into liquor establishments when off duty.
  • 7) Adds correction officers to the list of persons required to complete a firearms requalification program annually.

The bill is scheduled for a veto override vote in both chambers of the legislature after Christmas. We urge you to call AND write your legislators (see below for a sample email and info on how to find your legislators and how to determine your zip + four which is needed on some searches) and voice your strong support for the veto override. We vividly saw how grass roots from the opposition impacted pro-gun hearings in both chambers this year. We need to show both chambers of our legislature how strongly we support a veto override of this bill.

Below is the corrected link to a list of Senators and Representatives with their phone numbers and email address for your convenience.There are two tabs to the spreadsheet, one for the House and one for the Senate.

If you aren't sure what to say, copy and paste the following sample into an email, add the Senator or Representative's name and your name (and make any other changes you desire) before sending.


Senator/Representative ________________________________

I am a constituent in your district and I am outraged at Governor Kasich's veto of Substitute House
Bill 228. This bill makes common sense law. Ohio is the only state in the United States where a person who defends himself/herself and/or loved ones with deadly force is guilty until the person proves the actions were not illegal. Every other state in the union follows the principal of innocent until proven guilty. Substitute House Bill 228 aligns the principal of innocent until proven guilty with the rest of the Union.

This is not a one sided bill. There are provisions in this bill that make sense for both concealed handgun owners and law enforcement.

1) Strengthens Ohio Revised Code 9.68 to prevent municipalities from continuing to violate state preemption law without financial repercussions.
2) Makes straw purchases a state crime.
3) Shifts the burden of proof in self defense shootings from the accused to the prosecutor (as is the case in the other 49 states in the Union.)
4) Removes the requirement to carry a second form of identification in addition to a concealed handgun license.
5) Removes the requirement to post “no guns” signs in statutory locations that have opted to allow carry.
6) Permits law enforcement officers without a CHL to carry into liquor establishments when off duty.
7) Adds correction officers to the list of persons required to complete a firearms requalification program annually.

I strongly urge you to attend the veto override session for Substitute House Bill 228and vote to override this anti-citizen and anti-law enforcement veto.
