Firearms Bill Expected To See Possible Amendments, Lame Duck Movement

Sen. Ueker targets gun law revisions in lame duck

Senate legislation seeking to modify Ohio's concealed-carry laws is expected to clear the upper chamber this fall but not without first picking up some potential amendments, the sponsor said this week.

Named a likely priority by Senate President Keith Faber (R-Celina), the bill (SB 338*) would reduce the minimum training requirements to obtain firearm competency certification and allow non-Ohioans who work in the state to obtain CCW licenses, among other things.
