Next Hearing on House Bill 178

Next Hearing on House Bill 178

The next opposition hearing on HB 178 will be  Wednesday June 19th at 9:30 am.

The bill will then go to the Criminal Justice Committee. If it passes both committees it will then be voted on by the entire House.  Speaker Larry Householder decides if that vote happens.

HB 178 is a dangerous bill that the Ohio House Federalism Committee is now considering. This bill will allow anyone over 21 years of age and not prohibited by law to carry hidden loaded guns in public without a license, training, background check or oversight.

HB 178 would also allow persons to carry without a permit that are charged with pending felonies and violence related crimes and persons convicted of some assaults, drug offenses, resisting arrest and even a misdemeanor assault on a police officer.

The bill allows carrying of knives as concealed weapons and eliminates the requirement to notify law enforcement when carrying a weapon.

Take Action today!  Let them know that you oppose this dangerous bill.  Ask them to vote NO on HB178.
