Updated Ohio’s Concealed-Carry Laws and License Application Manual Available

Posted on June 15, 2022

As of this past Monday June 13, Ohio is now the 23rd state to allow citizens to carry a concealed handgun without a permit.  

Residents are encouraged to become well-versed in the new “Permitless Carry” law, by reading the newly updated “Ohio’s Concealed-Carry Laws and License Application” manual.

That can be found on the ohioattorneygeneral.gov website.

The updated manual reflects the two ways to legally carry a concealed handgun in Ohio. 

The law preserves the state’s existing concealed-carry licensing program which results in a photo-ID card but now allows Ohioans over the age of 21 the option of carrying without this permit.

The same laws, rules and prohibitions that apply to those with a permit also apply to Ohioans who choose to carry without a permit.
