Bill would end requirement to tell police you’re carrying a gun

A bill in the Statehouse would end the requirement for concealed carry permit holders to tell a police officer they’re carrying a gun.

Ohio law says a CCW holder must “promptly notify”.


“What does ‘promptly notify’ mean?” said Rep. Scott Wiggam, a Wooster Republican who sponsored House Bill 142. “We don’t know if you have to interrupt the officer and make sure they know in the line of their questioning.”
